Siemens has signed an MoU with the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) to promote mutual cooperation in science and technology development towards Industry 4.0.

HUST will consider Siemens as a technology partner and mobilize Siemens’ knowledge and experience in the development of its Digital Factory Lab, while Siemens is committed to providing HUST with state-of-the-art technology to enable Vietnam’s leading technical university to empower the next generation of digital talent in the country.

Siemens will grant 200 Solid Edge 3D CAD licenses to HUST, with a commercial value of about $30,000 each. Solid Edge software is an intuitive product development platform for accelerating all aspects of product creation, including 3D design, simulation, visualization, manufacturing, and design management.

Siemens will also support HUST in the development of its curricula and of a tailor-made “Train the Trainer” course to help HUST sustain its world-class quality in education and training in the digital age.

“Education is the key to sustainable development,” said Dr. Thai Lai Pham, President and CEO of Siemens Vietnam. “Siemens has been a strong supporter of the younger generation’s education and training worldwide. And today, through our partnership with HUST, we are proud that we can help to empower the next generation of digital talent in Vietnam.”

“HUST is pleased to partner with a global corporation that is on the cutting edge of digital technology,” said Professor Hoang Minh Son, President of HUST. “This partnership will enable us to meet needs in enhancing our education and training system, especially in the era of Industry 4.0. It fits well with our new strategic project known as ELITECH. Our students stand to benefit significantly because hands-on experience with leading digital technologies in the classroom will give them a distinct advantage as they begin their engineering and manufacturing careers.”

The collaboration between HUST and Siemens dates back to 1996, which was only three years after the establishment of Siemens’ official operations in Vietnam. Siemens helped HUST establish an Automation Training Center and since then has donated a range of automation equipment and different types of software to the university, including SIMATIC PLC and Siemens PLM software such as Tecnomatix software - a best-in-class digital manufacturing solution, NX software - a comprehensive digital product development solution, and software for simulation and planning of power grids (SINCAL). Siemens has also supported HUST in training kits, curriculum development, technical workshops for teachers and students, career talks, and much more.
