Polyco Group recently joined hands with East Asia University of Technology (EAUT) and German industrial conglomerate Siemens to launch Digital Process Industries Training Centre on Polyco premises in order to meet increasing education requirements for digital technologies, especially in the context of the Industry 4.0 revolution arriving to Vietnam.
The launch of the centre aims to equip present and future Vietnamese engineers for the digital manufacturing age

Polyco Group is a local leader in the design, manufacturing, and installation of equipment systems in the brewery and food processing industries.

To remain competitive, today’s manufacturers are encountering many challenges which require them to increase their production speed, flexibility, and efficiency while reducing production time and time to market. Meanwhile, product quality and cost optimisation must be ensured at all times.

But the biggest obstacle facing the manufacturing sector today is the lack of skilled training. It is the lack of skilled workforce that hinders productivity and creates a disadvantage against competitors in the same industry.

More than ever, there is a critical need for reducing the skills gap and identifying new skills for the future of manufacturing through education, apprenticeships, and industry partnerships.

Therefore, the launch of the Training Centre for Digital Process Industries at East Asia University of Technology (EAUT) comes at a very good time.

Its establishment is the result of the co-operation between Polyco Group, EAUT, and Siemens in a joint effort to equip present and future Vietnamese engineers with knowledge, skills, and the latest technologies for the digital manufacturing age.

Digital Process Industry Training Centre has been equipped with Siemens automation and digitalisation technologies, such as Siemens IoT technology, TIA Portal, BRAUMAT automation system, and S7-1500 PLC.

Students or engineers can learn and practice directly with a real demonstration, which includes products from field-level to management-level applied in industrial production in general and in the food and beverage industries in particular.

Moreover, learners could visualise five steps in the digitalisation value chain for process industries, including product design, process and plant design, engineering and commissioning, operation, and services.

Siemens also provides “Train the trainers” courses for professors in East Asia University of Technology on demonstrated technologies.

This is an activity under the global Siemens Automation Corporate with Education (SCE) programme. Professors will be provided with knowledge and pre-configured hard and software packages from industrial products, including accessories.

Besides, they are also offered training materials for specific modules for different classes. These will help professors simplify education in automation and digitalisation.

At the Digital Process Industry Training Centre, Siemens also provides SITRAIN courses. SITRAIN is Siemens training programme for industries with content, equipment, and trainers that follow Siemens global standards.

After the training, learners will be verified to get SITRAIN certificates which are recognised globally.

“To effectively benefit from technology applications, it is essential that education professionals ready themselves to transform their practices and keep identifying effective ways for transformations in their contexts. The training centre applies Siemens’ automation and digitalisation technology in diverse modes of education to meet current transformation requirements,"  said Dinh Van Thanh, CEO of Polyco Group cum vice rector of East Asia University of Technology.

“As a world-leading company in automation and digitalisation, we can provide industries in general and the food and beverage industries in particular specific customised products and solutions, ranging from shop floor level to MES/ERP or to industry cloud base services. I believe Digital Process Industries Training Centre will remarkably enhance the human resources capacity, not only for Polyco group but also for the whole food and beverage industry in Vietnam to face present and future challenges,” said Pham Thai Lai,  president and  CEO of Siemens Vietnam.
