Project-Based Curriculum

Through private-public partnerships, educational institutions establish applied, hands-on learning opportunities to strengthen industry-university linkages across multiple curriculum platforms. BUILD-IT develops curricular partnerships, industry-sponsored applied projects, capstone, mentorships, and internships to build students' confidence and capacity to succeed in technology and engineering careers.

 

Maker Innovation Network

To support project-based curricula, BUILD-IT modeled three Maker Innovation Spaces in Ho Chi Minh, Da Nang, and Can Tho City. These innovation workshops offer an active and collaborative environment, where both students and the private sector will benefit.
