Between October 10 and 11, Prof. Ueda Tamon, Chief Advisor and Acting Executive Director together with AUN/SEED-Net Secretariat made a visit to Ho Chi Minh city to attend the Regional Conference on Materials Engineering 2019 hosted by HCMUT.

The event was held in conjunction with International Symposium on Materials Science and Engineering (ISMSE 2019). The conference was as successful as they could draw more than 70 papers and 5 keynotes. The papers featured various topics ranging from smart & multifunctional materials, biomaterials, materials for environment, and nanomaterials and nanotechnology. The participants were engaged with constructive discussions throughout the two days.

The team also had a chance to hear the progress of the Collaborative Education Program (CEP) from MCM university consortium. CEP is the program where member universities are empowered to design and to manage their own study program with the funding from AUN/SEED-Net. As a consortium member of MCM, HCMUT is the main hosting university for students pursuing Master’s in Construction Management.

AUN/SEED-Net recognizes and appreciates HCMUT’s active involvement in our programs.
