In the past fifty years more than 1000 students, PhD candidates and professors have been educated at TU Dresden. To answer the interest in a German education with a German degree and to make it available to a broad social stratum, the Vietnamese-German Education and Research Institute (VDAFI) at TU Hanoi was founded together with the TU Dresden [German only].
Within university structures, the VDAFI is located at the Department of Mechancial Engineering.
With the VDAFI four aims are pursued:
- education in Hanoi with a broad basis to single out the most talented and motivated students for work in German
- the continuing education for engineers and executives in a number of subjects, particularly in engineering
- realization of research projects for Vietnamese and international corporations as well as research institutes
- networking between Vietnamese and international business, institutes and centers of education.
Head of Project is Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Uwe Füssel.
