Da Nang University, the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis and the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) (Francophone University Association) have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the fields of scientific research, education and student exchange, technology transfer, communications, business management, water management, and embedded software systems.
Following the MoU, the French partners plan to launch a Master of Business Administration (MBA) course, updated technology applications, innovation research and scientific information exchange.
As scheduled, Vietnamese and French students can enjoy education exchange programmes in both Da Nang and France.
Da Nang University is one of the top 50 universities in ASEAN, and a key human resource centre for the central and Central Highlands regions.
The university also plans to establish a teacher training college for engineering and the Vietnam-United Kingdom University in the central city from next year.
The Da Nang University Village project, which was planned in 1997 with total investment of 1.7 trillion VND (75.2 million USD), will resume construction later this year after a 20-year delay.
The university, which has developed 12 college-level education centres in the last 20 years, trains 90,000 students in technology, engineering, science, economics, trade, finance, foreign languages, medicine, culture, tourism and media studies per year.-fsgfsgsf
