UTS collaborates on emerging technologies with Vietnam counterpart


Research collaboration between the University of Technology Sydney and Vietnamese university, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, is focusing on smart cities and emerging technologies in cyber security at a newly established research centre in Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh City recently announced its strategy to become Vietnam’s first smart city, and HCMUT and UTS say the new research centre is perfectly placed to harness an abundant and highly-skilled workforce whose development will be supported by experts in Vietnam and Australia.

The UTS-HCMUT joint Technology and Innovation Research Centre will collaborate closely with Saigon Hi-Tech Park.

UTS is the first Australian university to formalise co-operation with SHTP, a regional model of technological innovation in Southern Vietnam.

During a March diplomatic visit to Australia headed by Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Industry 4.0 and smart cities were identified as research priorities for Vietnam, and are key research strengths in the UTS Faculty of Engineering and IT.

Supporting connections between education, research and industry are also key elements of the partnership.

In consultation with Vietnamese government ministries, city councils, and national-level hi-tech parks, FEIT has identified key areas for bi-lateral collaboration:

  •  Industry 4.0
  • Internet of Things
  • Smart Cities
  • Smart farming
  • Cyber security

The research partnership builds on the success of the 2017 Joint Research Centre established by UTS and the Vietnam National University – University of Engineering and Technology in Hanoi.

“Our goal in Ho Chi Minh City is to build a hub for university-industry research collaboration, working with our long term partner HCMUT and Vietnamese industry. We are looking forward to being a part of the vibrant, growing technology sector in Ho Chi Minh City,” said Professor Ian Burnett, dean, FEIT.

“We aim to expand our research co-operation and collaboration with industry, explore new approaches to bridging university-industry divides and work together on technology advances relevant to both countries.”

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
