As research is the key requirement in the development of a university, research has been always a priority of the DTU Board of Rectors.

Associate Professor Vo Van Nhi suggested some negative factors that might still inhibit scientific research at Vietnamese universities”. “It is necessary for MOET to issue some regulations concerning scientific research. In addition, lecturers recruited by any university must be qualified to meet the basic requirements.” 

In another presentation, entitled “Innovative Thinking“, Professor Nguyen Dinh Chu indicated that a change in thinking is vital not only in conducting scientific research but also in many other disciplines in a developing Vietnam. “Improving awareness in Vietnam of the importance of conducting scientific research will be key to our future success”, added Professor Chu.
