At a recent workshop held in Hanoi, emphasis was laid on training PhD students so as to help them connect with industries and enhance the economy of the nation.
Hoàng Xuân Hiệp, Rector of Hanoi Textile and Garment Industry University, while speaking about the same, averred “We have 2 garment factories in the campus where our students can work with partners and customers all across the globe.”
The university, which has over the time provided around 30 per cent of staff for Vietnam’s textile industry, is one of the acclaimed garment universities in the country.
While speaking to the media about how garment industry is growing fast in Vietnam, Hiệp said “We are training people for the next level of success, making Vietnam no longer an outsource destination for textile and garment products but a place where we can make the fashion products for the whole chain and also own a good brand.”
With the industry, across the globe, talking about Industry 4.0, the university is now training its post-graduate (PG) and PhD students on virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technology, as well as on lot of innovations in internet of things (IoT).
Over the years, Apparel Resources has visited some such universities including the University of Technical Education in Ho Chi Minh City, which specialises in garment technology and fashion and helps students get ready for the industry. However, more such universities need to offer garment and textile courses for students.
