Conference on “Industrial and System Engineering Doctorate program”

On the morning of 24/10, VNUHCM-International University held the “Industrial and System Engineering Doctorate program” Conference with the participation of experts, scientists, leaders…

PhD. Pham Huynh Tram, Vice Dean of the Department of Industrial and System Engineering, shared VNUHCM-IU trained more than 400 students and 50 graduate students in this field now. In particular, about 1/8 of graduate students want to study higher to do research or lecturing. Therefore, the need of supplement lecturers, researchers at the institutes and universities is essential. From the industry point of view, there is an extremely high demand for well-qualified workers in industrial and system engineering in companies, manufacturing factories or service providers, whom are capable of noticing and solving system problems in this competitive market in terms of price, quality and productivity. “However, there are a few universities in Viet Nam offering industrial and system engineering programs, however, they still have to face the lack of well-qualified lecturers and researchers. Especially, there are no Doctorate program on this specialization before in Viet Nam” – Dr.Pham Huynh Tram shared.
