Siemens helps to develop future engineering students in Vietnam

(CPV) - The official launch of Siemens Automation Training and Technology Transfer Center, and the handover ceremony of Siemens’ sponsoring package to Can Tho University took place in Can Tho today as part of Siemens’ strong commitment to further supporting the engineering education in Vietnam.

The package includes hardware and software grant with a total commercial value of about VND3.5 billion provided to set up a digital training and technology transfer center at Can Tho University, that will support the University in fulfilling their important role as the biggest education, training and research center in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam, as well as offer students the best practical exposure to the world’s state-of-the-art technology, thus enabling them to acquire useful knowledge and skills for their future career development.

The different packages have also been offered to six other big universities across Vietnam including Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Ho Chi Minh City University of Science and Technology, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education, Ton Duc Thang University, Tra Vinh University, Vinh Long University of Technology and Education. The total commercial value of this sponsoring project by Siemens Vietnam Digital Industries is around VND20 billion. 

Siemens’ most advanced software, such as TIA Portal, and hardware, such as SIMATIC Controller, will enable these universities to enhance their education and training activities, as well as to keep abreast of current and future needs of businesses and manufacturers. Besides, Siemens local experts will provide continuous support for teachers and trainers so that they can stay updated with latest technologies and apply them in class.  

“This is the automation training center sponsored by Siemens with the most modern equipment in Vietnam so far. The sponsorship from Siemens offers great opportunities for students and lecturers of Can Tho University as well as for Siemens partners in the Mekong Delta region to access, exploit and apply state-of-the-art technology. In particular, it will definitely contribute to the improvement of teaching and training quality at our university” said Prof. Dr. Ha Thanh Toan, Rector of Can Tho University.

“Being recognized as one of the world’s most innovative and largest industrial software companies, Siemens will not only attract and retain the talents, but also be responsible for making contribution to Vietnamese education by making use of its experience and advanced technologies. This sponsoring project, therefore, is believed to make critical changes towards advancing future generation of Vietnamese engineers and scientists. Together with many other past and existing cooperation and sponsoring initiatives in education, it will significantly help prepare Vietnam’s skilled workforce to support the country in leading the digital transformation and unleashing the potential of Industry 4.0”, said Dr. Thai Lai Pham, President and CEO of Siemens ASEAN and Vietnam./.
