New AUN-QA Associate Member Introduction: University of Transport and Communications

Noppanun Sookping
AUN Programme Officer;

The 274th AUN-QA Programme Assessment (Remote/online Site Visit) on 16-20 May 2022 was the first time AUN-QA had the pleasure to collaborate with one of its newest Associate Members, the University of Transport and Communications (UTC). Throughout the session, we at AUN-QA would like to share some interesting facts of this university residing in the bustling area of Hanoi, Viet Nam.

UTC is the oldest university to offer and teach Transportation discipline among all universities in Hanoi. The university first established the Faculty of Civil Engineering right after the university was founded.
Bachelor of Transport Construction Engineering – the programme to which AUN-QA provided assessment during the session – is under the Faculty of Civil Engineering. As one of the oldest Transportation Studies programmes in Viet Nam, UTC’s Bachelor of Transport Construction Engineering possesses several technologies, machines and equipment specialised for Transportation studies and training.

Item 1 "The Pseudo-dynamic Testing Machine"

One of such machines is called "The Pseudo-dynamic Testing Machine". It appears that only UTC has this kind of machine in Hanoi. The possession of such rare and complex technologies further stamps the reputation of UTC as a leading higher education institution in the Transportation field in Hanoi and Viet Nam.
