In the morning of April 4th, 2018, the HCMC University of Technology and Education in cooperation with the Asian University Network (AUN) held an Announcement Ceremony for the quality assessment of AUN – QA for the university’s 4 training programs (assessment starting from November 2017), namely, Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering Technology (Faculty of Electrical and Electronic Engineering), Thermal Engineering Technology (Faculty of Vehicle and Energy Engineering), Machinery Manufacturing Technology (Faculty of Mechanical Engineering) and Environmental Engineering Technology (Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology), which increased the number of the AUN – QA-accredited programs to the total of 8 formerly including Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, Mechatronics Engineering Technology, Automotive Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering Technology (as of 2016).


Overview of the Ceremony

The Ceremony participants included Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nantana Gajaseni (Acting Chairperson of AUN – QA), Dr. Pham Vu Quoc Binh (Director General of the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Do Van Dung (Party Committee Secretary, President of the HCMUTE), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ngo Van Thuyen (Chairman of the HCMUTE Council), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Le Hieu Giang (Vice-President of the HCMUTE), Dr. Truong Thi Hien (Vice-President of the HCMUTE), representatives from enterprises, organizations, representatives from the HCMUTE’s Faculties of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, of Vehicle and Energy Engineering, of Mechanical Engineering, of Chemical and Food Technology and the others, representatives from the university’s departments, press agencies and over 100 students to represent the training programs to be accredited by the AUN – QA at that time.

According to the official assessment of the AUN Secretariat, 4 training programs were qualified for the AUN – QA with the following respective scores: Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering Technology: 5.1/7 points; Thermal Engineering Technology: 4.9/7 points; Machinery Manufacturing Technology: 4.8/7 points; Environmental Engineering Technology: 4.7/7 points (Note: the score of 4 is to meet the requirements of the AUN; the score of 5 is to exceed the expectation of the AUN)


Ms. Nantana Gajaseni speaking at the event

At the ceremony, as the Acting Chairperson of AUN – QA, Ms. Nantana Gajaseni shared that she had learned many things from Mr. Do Van Dung as she was surprised at the close cooperation between the business sector and the HCMUE as well as at how well the university linked the enterprises with its training programs. Students with difficult circumstances were supported in different ways, through which the HCMUTE helped enable them to continue their paths to the future. There are two words starting with P in terms of the qualities a school must have. One is Passion, which means that an institute must have a passionate interest in continuously improving its quality. The other is Patience, indicating that that institute must be patient about getting any step forward in its quality. Moreover, quality is a journey, not a destination. 
With such results, the HCMUTE is proud to be one of the leading technical training institutes in the region gaining 8 AUN – QA accreditations in merely two years. Thus, the training quality is assured to be capable of the great demand for high-quality workforce not only in Vietnam but also in the region of ASEAN.

AUN – QA is the abbreviated name of the ASEAN University Network with Quality Assurance, which was founded in 1995 with the aims of fostering connections among its member universities through training activities, quality assessment to further their academic inter-institutional agreements. In the recent years, AUN has attached special importance to the mission of quality assessment and such activities like student, teacher exchange, credit transfer training programs among the universities. According to the statistics, till November 2017, there have been only 8 institutes with the AUN accreditations for their training programs. Being among them, the HCMUTE has been a prominent university gaining 8 AUN-QA-accredited programs with top scores compared to the others’ corresponding ones in Vietnam since 2009.
