The Higher Engineering Education Alliance Program (HEEAP) and its partners will host the fourth annual Vietnam Engineering Education Conference (VEEC) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The theme of VEEC 2016 is “Workforce Competitiveness: Partnerships Driving Human Capital Skills and Standards.”
Organized by HCMC University of Technology and Education (HCMUTE), the conference includes interactive plenary sessions, panel discussions, technical sessions and seminars with emphasis on partnerships between education, industry and government to innovate and build capacity in engineering and technology innovation in teaching, research and discovery.
With the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the ASEAN Economic Community launch, many Vietnam public and private universities are under pressure and eager to initiate or expand strategic partnerships with industry to increase human capital development.
VEEC 2016 will explore “industry-academic collaborations” that drive curricular innovations to create results-driven high-quality engineering graduates, technology transfer and commercialization, and research. These advances in engineering education will respond to the needs of an emerging global economy to further support a mobilized workforce.
We look forward to participating in exciting discussions!
