SEN Technology has agreed to strategically investing towards the development of a dynamic innovation ecosystem of students, faculty, industry and government for the transformation of the higher education system in the STEM and Environmental Sustainability areas in Vietnam.
The SEN Technology will, subject to our capacity & ability, contribute to the partnership with an in-kind contribution up to 100,000US Dollar amount from 2015-2017. This project will play an important role in developing and strengthening higher education and institutional program policies, as well as building capacity for high-quality/high-impact academic programs. This will be achieved through the development of curricular partnerships with industry sponsored and mentored experiential opportunities on a network of publicly accessible Maker Spaces, building students’ professional and technical competencies in preparation for STEM and Environmental careers in Vietnam. The BUILD-IT Alliance will also leverage technology solutions for data driven educational management, and develop robust assessment and evaluation systems to support continuous program improvement and international recognition and accreditation.
