Avnet Asia Pte Ltd signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). Students in their second and third year from the School of Electrical Engineering at the university will soon be equipped with knowledge on key IoT trends and innovations, and skills in deploying IoT applications with a team of Avnet technical experts.

Frederick Fu, president of Avnet Asia Pacific, said: "Vietnam is an important market for Avnet. It is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and it has massive potential to harness the power of IoT. Avnet has been actively nurturing the next-generation of local engineers through various platforms to support Vietnam in becoming a leading technology hub."

"We are very excited to partner HUST, one of the top engineering schools in Vietnam. Avnet strives to work closely with engineering students, who will be the ones shaping the future of Vietnam by driving economic growth and technological innovation. We recognize that students here are eager to learn more about both the new technologies, and their industry applications -- and Avnet can play a key role in enriching their knowledge across both with our strong technical and design teams, and connected ecosystem. Through this education program, we want to help add market value in Vietnam by empowering a group of young talents to design their own applications, to spur innovation and entrepreneurship."

The program developed by Avnet will consist of workshops and seminars that complement Vietnam's thriving technology scene. These masterclasses will be focused on the building blocks of IoT which encompass microprocessor usage, power design, motor control and measurement. Students will also be introduced to a comprehensive range of demonstration kits from Avnet and its suppliers, and apply the tools provided to create various applications for the automotive, industrial, communication and other industries.
