Representatives of both units discussed postgraduate cooperation programs


According to Professor Kim Young Mog, HUTECH and PKNU cooperated comprehensively several years ago. This cooperation provided a very important basis for promoting the implementation of postgraduate training and research programs in the dual degree mode, which was being proposed again by PKNU. Professor Jung Won Kyo said that interdisciplinary research and internationalization are being highly emphasized at PKNU, so this is an opportunity for both sides to jointly carry out scientific projects in the near future.


Speaking at the meeting, Assoc. Prof. Dr Vo Dinh Bay expressed his thanks to the PKNU for trusting and choosing HUTECH as partners in this cooperation. In addition, Assoc.Prof.Dr Vo Dinh Bay emphasized that by means of this dual training method he hoped that the two sides would continue to concretize the learning program in IoT, Data mining, and Machine learning as applied to the fields of Aquaculture, Agriculture, and Food.


Assoc.Prof. Dr. Pham Van Viet remarked that PKNU's training and research fields have many similarities with HUTECH, thus providing a foundation that helps the two sides have a long-term relationship. Assoc.Prof. Dr Thai Van Nam expressed his wish that the two sides could actively discuss more details about the postgraduate training program to open up opportunities for graduate students in the fields of engineering science and technology. HUTECH welcomed and exchanged opportunities for cooperation in postgraduate research programs with Pukyong National University (Korea).
