Facing with the common situation that graduates lack of clear career orientation and have limited or few social knowledge, many universities, including the University of Transport Technology, have taken different steps from long-term traditional education thinking. University of Transport Technology is the leading one in reorienting the training, incorporating technology with specialized theory education . The Board of Presidents of the university with open mindedness closely combines enterprises and the university to bring students closer to the practical application outside, not within the framework of books and lecture halls. The theory / practice ratio here is 60/40 and more balanced. Thereby, it is clear that learning with practice will bring much more positive results, students will not be surprised when entering the door of enterprises.

Dr. Quang Anh – Dean of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering – Construction Machine shares orientation and strengths of his faculty with Đua Fat.

With the special characteristics of the basic construction industry with the main service of bored pile and foundation treatment, Đua Fat always has a very high demand for engineers and construction experts. Over 10 years in the industry, Đua Fat has risen to the Top of foundation construction company in Southeast Asia, especially in technology and machinery. The last 5-year period is the rapid growth phase of Đua Fat with the exponential increase in machinery capacity each year. In order to maintain and promote that strong base, it is impossible not to invest in human resources to operate and develop high-tech applications into the real works. More than anyone else, President Le Duy Hung understand this fact very well. According to him, the mission of developing human resources in this industry is not only important to Đua Fat but also has a great impact on the general human resource base of the construction industry and will greatly affect  economic development in general.

The sub-divisions which Đua Fat concerns are also the highly regarded faculties of the university such as Construction Mechanical Engineering, Bridge and Road Construction. The two faculties account for a large number of the total of 13,000 students studying at the 3 facilities of the university.

The Board of Presidents highly appreciated the enthusiasm as well as the stature of Đua Fat, especially with the technology and equipment capabilities, which are almost not available in the “textbooks”. Đua Fat has many factors in accordance with the university’s development orientation as well as specialized training faculties. Sharing the cooperation model, Vice Principal Nguyen Hoang Long suggested a few items:

  • The university is willing to invite engineers and experts of the Đua Fat to join the board which guides students’ graduation topics so that enterprises can proactively bring their practical problems to students. Orient and evaluate good students in accordance with the recruitment criteria of Đua Fat, so that they can be proactive after graduation and devote to businesses.
  • Regularly organize training courses, advanced workshops and practical practices on the construction site, at the workshop of Đua Fat. Approaching and researching modern equipment and machinery with the guidance of domestic and foreign experts currently working for Đua Fat.
  • Even, the Board of President of the university also offered to be ready to recruit students, open a special class of talent students according to Đua Fat standards to screen and select the best individuals right from high school graduation. With intensive training programs, the students study not only construction but also corporate culture right from the lecture hall.
