Reporter: For technical sectors such as Engineering Technology (mechanical engineering, mechatronics, automobiles, automation control...) or Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, what are the differences between connecting with businesses in these fields compared to the others?

Dr. Kieu Xuan Thuc: Basically, the U-E cooperation in the fields of Engineering Technology (mechanical, mechatronics, automobiles, automation control...) has no big difference compared to that of other groups. There is only the difference in scale and nature due to the specific characteristics of the industry group. In the field of Engineering Technology, along with the Industrial Revolution 4.0 and the continuous development of foreign corporations, the demand for high-quality human resources is increasing. Therefore, along with their production and business development strategies, large corporations actively cooperate with the University from the beginning, to solve the human resource problem at a longer range, with more depth and scale.

For example, Nissan Automotive Technology Vietnam has implemented an intensive training program for engineers and bachelors; Foxconn Technology Group invested USD 5 million on Hanoi University of Industry to jointly establish HaUI - Foxconn technical training center on mechanical processing, Mitsubishi Corporation invested in PLC and inverter practice equipment; Toyota invested in training equipment on paint, chassis and car shell; Siemens sponsored training equipment for Smart Factory; Samsung sponsored MTB, etc. That bringing students closer to businesses through field trips, internships and corporate sponsorship of equipment and facilities for practice/experiments for the University step by step helps students have good knowledge and skills, from which they can immediately meet the requirements of recruiting enterprises after graduation.

Dr. Kieu Xuan Thuc: In fact, human resources of the tourism industry are seriously lacking in both quantity and quality after the pandemic has subsided, thus to prepare for a new period, Hanoi University of Industry had a breakthrough solution to meet real needs: Opening the new major “Catering and restaurant management”, which are highly appreciated and have long-term development potential; Encouraging and assisting students to be able to graduate in 3-3.5 years.

Along with that, the University has also increased investment in facilities and equipment for training programs in the fields of tourism, restaurants, and hotels, so that teachers and students can actively teach practical courses and basic practice right in the University. As for the practical part, advanced practice will be connected and organized by the University in large enterprises in the tourism industry; Diversifying foreign languages ​​such as English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean in order to help students to work in a multicultural environment.

Hanoi University of Industry has been creating long-term and sustainable cooperation relationships with a number of large student recruitment agencies: Marriott, Fortuna, Sheraton, Melia, Daewoo, Metropole, FLC, Flamingo, Vingroup, Viettravel,… thereby opening up more job opportunities for students of the University.

Reporter: So, for the language training majors, what orientation will the University have to increase job opportunities for students?

Dr. Kieu Xuan Thuc: For language training majors, the University makes the most of the advantages of the credit system in training so that students can shorten their study time at the University and can spend from 6 months up to 1 year for internships at enterprises, especially foreign enterprises.
Regarding the content of training programs, the language majors are designed in the direction of science, technology, commerce and tourism. Therefore, upon graduation, thanks to their deep background knowledge, students can perform well the tasks of translating and interpreting in these fields meeting the demands of enterprises in science and technology, commerce, and tourism. For example, Foxconn Technology Group, when recruiting a Bachelor of Chinese, prefers students who have a background in science and technology.
