As part of its vision to be a world-leading university of technology, University of Technology Sydney is continuing to establish agile research and technology partnerships in Vietnam, one of the world’s most dynamic economies.

PhD training and research exchange underpin the growing presence of UTS as it builds on its collaboration with leading universities, national key laboratories, hi-tech parks, and government ministries, driving excellence and innovation in its partnerships to co-create value and impact.

UTS’ Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT) has established joint/dual PhD programs with five top universities in Vietnam: Vietnam National University, Hanoi; Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City; Vietnam National University, Danang; and Hanoi University of Science and Technology, and VAST Graduate University of Science and Technology.

VNU Hanoi is the largest comprehensive higher education and research centre in Vietnam. Delegations from FEIT visited VNU, Hanoi throughout 2016 to discuss joint research activity with its subsidiary, University of Engineering and Technology (VNU-UET). These conversations culminated in the development of a joint research centre, the first of its kind between Australia and Vietnam.

The UTS-VNU Joint Technology and Innovation Research Centre (JTIRC) was launched in March 2017, with the Australian Ambassador to Vietnam in attendance. The vision of the JTIRC is to become a hub for industry and research collaboration between Australia and Vietnam. In coming years, it is expected that it will expand its activities to a purpose-built facility in Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park, set to become Vietnam’s leading industry cluster for manufacturing, R&D, and innovation.
