As part of our vision to be a world-leading university of technology, UTS continues to establish agile research and technology partnerships in Vietnam; one of the world’s most dynamic economies.
PhD training and research exchange underpin our growing presence as we build on our collaborations with leading universities, national key laboratories, hi-tech parks, and government ministries, driving excellence and innovation in partnerships to co-create value and impact. Key areas of collaboration have been identified as Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, smart city, smart farming, and cybersecurity.
In both Vietnam and Sydney, UTS Engineering and IT experts in emerging areas deliver courses and workshops to government ministers, academics, engineers, researchers, and major industry representatives such as FPT Corporation; the largest information technology service company in Vietnam.
Current research projects
As we increase the scale, quality and impact of research, UTS is fostering the exchange of people and ideas – supporting Australia’s commitment to develop mutually beneficial scientific and technological collaboration with Vietnam, and to explore bilateral cooperation in information and communication.
Environmental research is the basis of a UTS partnership with Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), including analysis and monitoring of the Vietnamese coastal environment and a water filtration system for the Red River Delta. The arsenic elimination project won an Australian Government-Google Technology against Poverty Prize for removing arsenic and delivering safe and clean drinking water.
Data Science is a key ‘Focus Area’ of UTS research, and the Centre for Real-time Information Networks (CRIN) is one of the largest and strongest university research centres in Australia dedicated to the prevention and detection of intrusion and security attacks. Scientists from Vietnamese institutions are working with CRIN and other UTS Engineering and IT staff on cybersecurity.
The Faculty of Engineering and IT is proud to lead the DFAT-funded project UTS Rapido Vietnam: Industry 4.0 for sustainable water systems. The project leverages strengths in data engineering and water technology in collaboration with partners in Vietnam, with the overarching aim of establishing a sustainable model of technology transfer for Vietnam.
Partnerships in Vietnam
UTS’ partnership model represents bilateral engagement with Vietnam – an emerging powerhouse of industry and technology. We are contributing to the development and employment of a highly-skilled workforce in Vietnam as we help identify and support the next generation of researchers for academia and for industry.
