RMIT University Vietnam has signed a memorandum of understandings with Innove Technology Development Ltd for the latter’s Solidworks Education software to support its new engineering curriculum.

The agreement, signed in HCM City on Wednesday, would enable it to train Viet Nam’s next generation of digitally capable engineers for Industry 4.0, RMIT said.

The partnership will underpin a range of initiatives including the development of a specialist engineering training curriculum.

These initiatives aim to eventually extend RMIT’s training capacity to industry and to be a base for further collaboration between the university, Innove and their industry partners.

At the signing ceremony, Innove announced plans to work with RMIT to develop a comprehensive science technology engineering mathematics (STEM) programme integrating Solidworks software for primary and secondary schools, expected to commence at the end of 2020.

Eric Dimla, head of RMIT Vietnam’s School of Science and Technology, said: “This partnership gives them the opportunity to become proficient in innovative engineering design technology as Việt Nam develops its digital economy in the context of Industry 4.0.”

Australian university RMIT has over 6,000 students.

Innove Technology Development Ltd is now the local exclusive partner for Solidworks education. — VNS
