An Agreement with the Hanoi University of Industrial Fine Art
On March 10th, DTU and the Hanoi University of Industrial Fine Art signed a partnership agreement for Fine Art training. Attendees included Dr. Bui Xuan Hoang, representative of the Higher Education Department of the Ministry of Education and Training; Ms. Pham Ngoc Lan of the Association of Vietnam Universities and Colleges; Associate Professor Dr. Le Huyen, President of the Vietnam Design Association; Associate Professor Dr. Nguyen Xuan Nghi, Provost of the Hanoi University of Industrial Fine Art, Distinguished Teacher Le Cong Co, DTU President and Provost; Dr. Le Nguyen Bao, DTU Vice-Provost, and representatives of local universities and businesses.
Distinguished Teacher Le Cong Co said: “The recent expansion in Applied Arts training at universities appears to still not meet the requirements of prospective students, to create art for application in many business sectors, such as journalism, fashion, architecture and advertising. We can see this every day in our food, homes, clothing, entertainment and businesses. In response to the increasing training requirements in Applied Arts, DTU has signed an MOU with the Hanoi Industrial Fine Art to prepare for training support and the creation of a new curriculum. Hopefully, the collaboration will provide a foundation for future Applied Arts students to create their own designs and start-ups.”
