Vietnamese Academic Partners
Partners and Sponsorship Opportunities
Higher Engineering Education Alliance Program members will be requested to serve as active participants in the Champions Leadership Committee to support the goals and strategic outcomes of the Alliance. Members will be acknowledged with special distinction, including name and/or logo in annual reports, materials for faculty workshops, faculty and student projects, newsletters, the program web site, and materials prepared for public relations. Members will participate in project selection and advising on the impact of the Alliance in advancing undergraduate engineering curriculum.
VALUE, IMPACT, & INNOVATION
The Higher Engineering Education Alliance Program works closely with its partners, providing them with an innovative and meaningful engagement into the advancement of engineering education in Vietnam through both innovative thinking and creative program advisement. By collaborating with industry and academic peers, the program provides ideas, technologies, and paradigms to prepare Vietnamese engineering students for life-long learning. Sponsoring companies benefit through a broad range of areas:
Sponsors will become members of the program’s Champions Leadership Committee, which provides a platform to bring academic, government and industry leaders together to collectively focus on advancing internationally accredited undergraduate engineering curriculum. Through creative idea sharing and discussion, the CLC will align resources to meaningful “high-impact” instructional and curriculum projects directly linked to the strategic objectives and outcomes of the program. The CLC will meet twice annually in Vietnam.
Innovative Project Brainstorming and Project Development Forums
The alliance sponsors will see the impact of projects firsthand through annual reports, participation in project proposal reviews and outcomes, and formal research papers authored by faculty of participating institutions implementing change projects. The program will host an annual symposium in Vietnam for the faculty, university leadership, and participating students to share project outcomes, challenges, and successes with the CLC members. This will include an annual report from the Measurement and Evaluation team to discuss the impact of the alliance on the advancement of undergraduate engineering education at each of the Vietnamese institutional partner campuses.
One of the program’s greatest strengths is the impact on the quality of engineering students. Sponsors can engage with these students through project sponsorship providing applied “real-world” experiences in the classroom and opportunities for industry to identify interns and hire graduates.
Many sponsors will leverage the alliance to build business connections and to collaborate with faculty and universities on advancing instructional approaches and pedagogy to impact workforce development in Vietnam.
Neutral Meeting Place for Collaboration
Sponsors recognize the value of meeting other sponsors, opening the possibility for collaboration, or even for leveraging the program to organize partnerships or projects with multiple divisions within their own companies.
