Accordingly, students in their second and third year from the School of Electrical Engineering at the university (HUST) will soon be trained on key IoT trends and innovations, as well as skills in deploying IoT applications by a team of Avnet technical experts.

Frederick Fu, president of Avnet Asia Pacific, said: “Vietnam is an important market for Avnet. It is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and it has massive potential to harness the power of IoT. Avnet has been actively nurturing the next-generation of local engineers through various platforms to support Vietnam in becoming a leading technology hub.”

“Through this education programme, we want to help enhance market value in Vietnam by empowering a group of young talents to design their own applications, to spur innovation and entrepreneurship,” he added.

Avnet developed the programme to include workshops and seminars that complement Vietnam’s thriving technology scene.

These master classes will be focused on the building blocks of IoT, which encompass microprocessor usage, power design, motor control, and measurement.

Students will also be introduced to a comprehensive range of demonstration kits from Avnet and its suppliers, and apply the tools provided to create various applications for the automotive, industrial, communication, and other industries.

Nguyen Huy Phuong, dean of the School of Electrical Engineering at Hanoi University of Science and Technology said: “Avnet has been a key player in the technology industry and we welcome their team of experts who are committed to the continuous development of our students by equipping them with technology know-how and providing them with the practical skill-sets needed to thrive in a high-growth economy.”

As one of the earliest companies to invest in Vietnam’s product and design services since 2009, Avnet has continuously conducted a series of workshops and talks in Vietnam to engage with the industrial and technology communities.

Earlier last month, the company held its Embedded Vision TechDay seminar series in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City for local engineers, purchasers, and business owners to learn about the latest developments in embedded vision.
