“Our university always focuses on providing the necessary education and mentoring to encourage students to conduct basic research,” said School of Engineering & Technology Provost Dr. Ha Dac Binh. “We always acknowledge and praise the continuing achievements and contributions of our Environmental & Natural Science members. However, I believe that we all should all pay more attention to the digital transformation of Agriculture and to coordinate interdisciplinary research to improve the quality of our findings.”
