Can Tho (VNA) – A workshop discussing how to build University – Industry Learning and Development through Innovation and Technology (BUILD-IT) took place in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on September 11.

Speaking at the event, Secretary of the Steering Committee for the project Dao Phong Lam said BUILD-IT leverages deep and diverse government-industry-academic partners that share a goal of tightly linking science, technology, engineering and math instruction in Vietnamese higher education institutions.

The project builds on the success of the Higher Engineering Education Alliance Programme (HEEAP) which aims to develop experienced university leadership, construct innovative and effective curricula and promoting university engagement.

At present, Can Tho University (CTU) is adopting models recommended by the project. Accordingly, enterprises offer a list of requirements for graduates, provide them with necessary tools for experiments and commit to hiring them after graduation.

Meanwhile, the university will design appropriate curricula and assess teaching quality based on innovation and technology, towards meeting businesses’ requirement.

The event was co-hosted by the CTU and Arizona State University.-VNA
