From 6 to 8 December 2021, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg), in collaboration with Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), held a series of virtual seminar for students from Advanced Engineer’s Program in Automotive Engineering of HUST. The lectures were organized within the framework of HaMoNee Project, given by Prof. Dr. Dirk Engel, Professor of Mechatronic Systems in Chassis Engineering (FuF) of HAW Hamburg.

The 3-day seminar, entitled "Modeling aspects in Advanced Automotive Engineering”, attracted a total of 52 HUST’s students, marking the launch of the HaMoNee Project and also the kick-off collaboration activity between HUST and HAW Hamburg.

During the weeks of intense discussion that preceded this virtual exchange, both universities consistently pursued one primary purpose, which Assoc. Prof. Pham Van Sang, Vice-Dean of the School of Mechanical Engineering of HUST, put into words as follows: ”Our only purpose, our only target is to bring the best education, bring the best training to our students who will be the automotive engineers of the near future.”. Accordingly, he expressed his great joy and gratitude for the seminar that is regarded as an inaugural event for the collaboration between the two universities, from which HUST students benefited greatly.

Concurring, Prof. Dr. Dirk Engel highlighted the success of the course as a promising foretaste of the exchange activities planned for the coming years and as a first step towards the establishment and expansion of a long-term strategic partnership between HUST and HAW Hamburg: ”[…] this course showed us that there are commonalities and a lot of things to grow and to be worth working on, in order to develop a long and lasting cooperation between HUST and HAW Hamburg.”

At the conclusion of the seminar, Assoc. Prof. Pham Van Sang and Prof. Dirk Engel awarded a virtual certificate to the students in recognition of their successful completion of the course. 

Dr. Phung Lan Huong, Head of HUST’s External Affairs Office, took the opportunity to congratulate the students on their achievement, expressing HUST’s gratitude for the promising collaboration with HAW Hamburg and its anticipation of future work within the ‘HaMoNee’ project: “[…] so I strongly believe that the collaboration in the framework of the HaMoNee project between our university and HAW Hamburg will develop more in the future, so please let me express my great congratulations again to all of you and very best wishes to you.”

HaMoNee Project:

The purposes of the DAAD-funded project ‘HaMoNee - Hamburg/ Hanoi Mobile Engineers’ are to promote the international mobility of students and teaching staff at HAW Hamburg and its partner universities in Vietnam, develop collaborative programmes of study taught in English, and establish a long-term strategic partnership with universities and industry partners in Vietnam, with a view to extending these activities to other countries in East and South East Asia. HUST - Vietnam's leading university of science and technology - is one of four universities and three industry partners on board in the project.

The call for applications for places on the outbound exchange to Vietnam planned to commence in summer semester 2023 will be issued in spring 2022. Target group: students and academic teaching staff in the field of automotive engineering, but also in other disciplines - subject to the availability of appropriate courses/internships at the relevant partner institution.
