On September 6, 2022, Vice President and Director of the International Center, Hiroshi Shirai, and Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Kazunori Umeda, visited Hanoi University of Science and Technology in Hanoi, Vietnam. Chuo and Hanoi University of Science and Technology entered into a cooperation agreement in 2011.
During the visit, Vice President Shirai and Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering Umeda visited the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and met with Vice Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Hoang Hong Hai. Later, Dean Umeda visited the Faculty’s labs and other facilities. Vice President Shirai visited the International Center and had a meeting with the Managing Director, Nguyen Mai Chi, and a meeting with the Dean of the Faculty of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Nguyen Huu Thanh.
Since the Cooperation Agreement was signed, Chuo has accepted eight students from Hanoi University of Science and Technology as university recommendation scholarship students. As these students have been mostly from electrical or electronics fields, Managing Director Chi is eager to see students in other fields accepted in the future. Dean Nguyen said that they would like to develop faculty exchange and joint research in the future. Vice President Shirai noted the possibilities of short-term study programs and accepting students through Sakura Science Program, and he also would like to review the current agreement and consider the possibility of a faculty exchange agreement. Throughout the visit there was an active exchange of views from all participants, confirming the potential for further strengthening cooperation.
