RMIT Vietnam and the Asian Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU) recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement to work together to enhance Asian education in engineering and technology.

Through the agreement, signed at RMIT Vietnam’s Saigon South campus, the two universities will focus on potential collaborative opportunities including academic interests between the two institutions, organising successful international conferences, enhancing student exchange programs and postgraduate education, and research collaboration.

RMIT Vietnam Head of Centre of Technology Professor Alex Stojcevski said the agreement was an important step in providing more academic opportunities for students and continuing professional development for staff, as well as collaborative research activities.

“RMIT Vietnam is delighted to have this collaborative opportunity in engineering and technology, which is aligned with the university’s growth areas,” he said.

Asian Pacific University of Technology and Innovation Dean of Postgraduate Studies Professor Rajasvaran Logeswaran said he was proud to collaborate with RMIT Vietnam in the field of engineering and technology.

“We are also pleased to team up with RMIT Vietnam on areas such as academic professional development and postgraduate education; we have much to learn from each other,” he said.

The Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation is rated number one in Asia and Malaysia for multicultural learning experiences.

One of Malaysia’s premier private universities, its unique fusion of technology, innovation and creativity prepares professional graduates for significant roles in business and society globally.

Its goals are closely consistent with those of RMIT Vietnam, which has a substantial record in preparing students for work and life through innovative courses accredited in Australia.
