The consortium consists of Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT), Yokohama National University (YNU) from Japan, Yangon Technological University (YTU) from Myanmar and JFE Steel Corporation (JFE) from Japan. The program will conduct the master’s degree in construction management in English. Students recruited to the consortium will receive 2-year scholarships from JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net. Scholarship students will also have opportunity to do their internship at YNU, JFE and YTU.
