HCM City will this year improve public universities and colleges to meet ASEAN accreditation standards.

The programmes will be carried out under an action plan to improve the quality of training.

The plan, unveiled by the city People’s Committee recently, will help improve training to supply highly skilled human resources meeting its socio-economic development, global integration, industrialisation and modernisation needs.

It will also improve the professional knowledge of managers and lecturers at its universities and colleges, who will be sent to other countries for three weeks for training.  

It will upgrade facilities and technologies and equipment at the IT faculty at the Thu Duc College of Technology; mechanical and electronics engineering faculty at the HCM City Technical and Economic College; healthcare faculty at the Pham Ngoc Thach Medical University; education- service faculty at the Sai Gon University; mechanical engineering faculty at Ly Tu Trong College; economics-finance faculty at the College of Economics; and logistics faculty at the College of Transport.

The city aims to develop two colleges and one university under a model called “advanced school”.

The rate of students doing scientific research this year will be more than 20 per cent, the same number as graduates with good knowledge of English and soft skills such as communication and teamwork.

The city is encouraging all universities and colleges to get international accreditation.

The People’s Committee has instructed Pham Ngoc Thach Medical University, Sai Gon University, HCM City Technical and Economic College, and Thu Duc College of Technology to submit plans for developing advanced facilities matching ASEAN standards.
