The Advanced Institute of Engineering and Technology (AVITECH) with Assoc.Prof.Dr. Nguyễn Linh Trung as its Director, was established under Decision No 1018/QĐ-TCCB dated October 18, 2017 by the Rector of VNU University of Engineering and Technology.
Speaking at the ceremony, VNU UET Rector Nguyễn Việt Hà expressed his pleasure at the launch of the Advanced Institute of Technology and Technology - a new unit to carry out the university’s science and technology mission. He believed that AVITECH would help the university form interdisciplinary research groups in information and communication technology; manufacturing, control and automation; new materials technology and energy. Also, the Institute's research will create high-tech products that promote research, development, implementation and technology transfer for creating a positive research environment.
At the ceremony, Assoc.Prof.Dr. Nguyễn Linh Trung determined the Institute’s vision to become an excellent interdisciplinary research centre in Vietnam in the fields of Information Technology, Electronics, Communications, Mechanical Robotics ... The establishment of the Institute was a milestone in the development strategy of VNU UET in terms of both scale and quality. The Institute has selected its initial research directions to include intelligent information technology systems for distance medical and health care. The Institute’s scientific and technological products would be intelligent products closely related to medical imaging and storage systems. These systems will integrate technologies that address five areas of signal processing and imaging, artificial intelligence, communications security, multidimensional display and transmission, medical sensor design.
Characterized by an open model, to launch its selected research directions, in 2018, the Institute needs to attract highly-qualified scientific research personnel and build a network of partnerships. In particular, the Institute is to establish a number of new mechanisms to create a favourable working environment to attract researchers.
