The Twinning Program in Engineering Education. It is the cooperation between the HCMC University of Technology and 3 Australian universities : the University of Tasmania, the University of Melbourne and the University of New South Wales. The course content and the course structure of the Twinning Program in Viet Nam are almost identical to that at the University of Tasmania and are recognized by many universities in the world. The teaching medium is English. Especially, from 2002, the Center held the workshop experience (industrial visit) at the industrial factories to help the students to have good knowledge concerning engineering career. The electrical and electronic laboratories are updated regularly to meet the needs in teaching. The professors from the University of Tasmania have some lectures in Viet Nam to update the course content and to help the students to have a good preparation in transfer to Tasmania.
