The objective is to enable human capital development and collaboration between education, research and firms in order to achieve world-class local expertise in latest industry practices and increase the value-added of young graduates.
The center will constitute ITC’s technology incubator in charge of facilitating adoption of competitive practices in engineering education and industry digital processes. It will be installed within ITC Campus with the support of one full-time teacher from IME, a Malaysian company and DS’ academic partner institution, and supported by experts from ITC educational infrastructure. It will give access to teachers, students and researchers to state of the art computing toolsand develop know-how and support the regional Industrial web.
The first stage of the collaboration will be to focused on the training on SOLIDWORKS – a software dedicated to the design of mechanical and electrical systems – concerning all engineering students within the ‘Industrial and Mechanical Engineering’ and ‘Electrical and Energy Engineering’ programs.
The Center will operate in an international network including equivalent centers such as PLMCC Hanoi (Product Lifecycle Management Competency Center) and industrial partners in the region.
