The second annual Vietnam Engineering Education Conference is being held March 25- 26 at the Rex Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.  This conference is sponsored by HEEAP and the host campus, Ho Chi Minh University of Technology and is focused on developing collaborations between faculty and government-industry-academic leaders.  The conference will feature a keynote presentation on innovative methods in education involving techniques such as hybrid/flipped classrooms and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), as well as industry/academic panel discussions on ways that we can inspire the next generation of engineers and on building public-private partnerships in both education and scientific research.  The conference will also feature a keynote presentation on the development of a national strategy for technical innovation in Vietnam. Technical sessions at the VEEC will address a variety of topics ranging from the development of bi-national research and education collaboration to classroom activities which promote and reinforce student engagement.   The conference will also include technology exhibits from HEEAP’s technology partners.  The VEEC is an opportunity for participants to develop connections and share best practices in addition to enjoying the sights and hospitality of Ho Chi Minh City.  It is through our continued partnership that we will develop efforts which will result in a lasting transformation of education in both Vietnam and in the partner countries.
