RMIT Vietnam and the Asian Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU) in Malaysia will work together to enhance education in engineering and technology.
A Memorandum of Agreement was recently signed at RMIT Vietnam’s Saigon South campus, which will see the two universities collaborating on academic interests, organising successful international conferences, enhancing student exchange programs and postgraduate education, and research initiatives.
Professor Alex Stojcevski, Head of the Centre of Technology at RMIT Vietnam, said the agreement was an important step in providing more academic opportunities for students and continuing professional development for staff, as well as collaborative research activities.
“RMIT Vietnam is delighted to have this collaborative opportunity in engineering and technology, which is aligned with the university’s growth areas,” he said.
Professor Rajasvaran Logeswaran, Innovation Dean of Postgraduate Studies at APU, said he was proud to collaborate with RMIT Vietnam in the field of engineering and technology.
“We are pleased to team up with RMIT Vietnam on areas such as academic professional development and postgraduate education; we have much to learn from each other,” he said.
APU is rated number one in Asia and Malaysia for multicultural learning experiences.
One of Malaysia’s premier private universities, its unique fusion of technology, innovation and creativity prepares professional graduates for significant roles in business and society across the globe.
Its goals are closely consistent with those of RMIT Vietnam, which has a substantial record in preparing students for work and life through innovative courses accredited in Australia.
