On the occasion, the VFF President Nhan thanked the World Bank, the German government and Germany’s universities and professors for their active assistances in the process of constructing and developing the Vietnamese-German University.

The university has trained over 1,400 students with four tertiary-level and seven masters-level programmes since it debuted seven years ago. So far, 17 laboratories have been successfully built at the university for its 11 training programmes.

From now to 2021, the Vietnamese-German University will implement training programmes in six disciplines: electronics and telecommunications, mechanics, construction and architecture, environmental techniques and processing, economics and management, and computer science. After 2021, the university will expand its training to the fields of natural sciences and social sciences aiming to meet Vietnam’s demand for human resource development.
