From January 15 to January 26, 2024, the Institute of Smart City and Management - University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City (UEH - ISCM) collaborated with the Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD - LKYCIC) to organize a Short-Term International Course: Smart City and Technology - the Case of Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore. With the aim to encourage knowledge exchange and promote learning through practical experiences, the course received positive attitude from the UEH and SUTD student communities.

Lecturers and students from UEH and SUTD participated in the course

Accompanying with 10 students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design, students from the UEH actively participated in learning and expanding their knowledge of applying new technologies, especially AI, to address urban issues in various aspects. This was achieved through insights shared by professors and experts in the field. Additionally, emphasizing the combination of theory and practice, the course was designed with field trips for students to gather information and process data. This enabled participants to propose solutions for existing issues at the selected location, orient its development towards becoming a smart and sustainable area.

A highlight of the course was the objective to complete a scientific research paper according to standard criteria. Student groups, comprising both SUTD and UEH students, conducted on-site visits, collected and processed data, and discussed problem-solving under the guidance of faculty members from both institutions. Following this hands-on experience, participants will continue collaborating online to finalize their research on the chosen topics.
