A Meeting with Professor Ngo Viet Trung

On May 24th, the DTU Board of Provosts and lecturers met with Professor Ngo Viet Trung, former Head of Institute of Mathematics at the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST).  
Professor Ngo Viet Trung 

Professor Trung was born on May 8th, 1951 in Dien Ban in Quang Nam province. His research interests include Commutative Algebra and Interactions in Algebraic Geometry and Combinatorics. He has published a hundred articles in international journals. Professor Ngo Viet Trung, Professor Nguyen Tu Cuong and Professor Le Tuan Hoa received the Ho Chi Minh Award in Science and Technology in 2016 for their work entitled “Some important invariants and structure of local and graded rings". This is the highest award in Vietnam of its kind. 
Professor Trung gives advice to DTU lecturers and staff
Professor Trung has spent much time teaching and conducting research projects with young students. He said: “We faced many difficulties during our early days at the Institute of Mathematics. However, we had the determination to work hard and pursue our research.  I believe that once you dedicate yourself to research, you will always have the patience and energy to overcome all obstacles.”
Professor Trung gave invaluable advice on how to build effective working teams, about educational collaboration, research scholarships and so on. 
“Although it strives to be a research and applications focused university, DTU is still aware of the fact that study of fundamental science is still vital for the sustainable development of applied sciences,” said Distinguished Teacher Le Cong Co, DTU President and Provost. “Without considering monetary profits as its main goal, DTU spends a lot of time ‘reinvesting’ in education, ‘importing’ prestigious well-developed, international programs and focusing on research. I hope that we will continue to contribute to the development of research in the fundamental sciences at DTU through our strategy of attracting talented academics and creating a research environment to support them.”
