Avnet Asia Pte Ltd today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). Under the agreement, students in their second and third year from the School of Electrical Engineering can expect to be equipped with knowledge on key IoT trends and innovations, and skills in deploying IoT applications with a team of Avnet technical experts.

The program developed by Avnet will consist of workshops and seminars that complement Vietnam’s technology scene. These masterclasses 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, which they can use to create various applications for the automotive, industrial, communication and other industries.

“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,” said Frederick Fu, President of Avnet Asia Pacific. “We recognize that students here are eager to learn more about both the new technologies, and their industry applications — and Avnet can play a key role in enriching their knowledge across both with our strong technical and design teams, and connected ecosystem.”

Dr. Nguyen Huy Phuong, Dean of 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 that are committed to the continuous development of our students by equipping them with the 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 its industrial and technology communities. Earlier last month, the company held its Embedded Vision TechDay seminar series in Hanoi and Ho Chi Min for local engineers, purchasers and business owners to learn about the latest developments in embedded vision.
