INTEK Institute of Applied Technology has recently signed a co-operation agreement with the Youth Development Science & Technology Center. As part of this co-operation, 50 Starter Programming scholarships will be granted to talented students through the centre – a non-business unit directly under the City Youth Union of Ho Chi Minh City with the aim to support and encourage students from universities in Ho Chi Minh City to turn their IT passion and dreams into reality.

As both organisations share the same mission to create many practical playgrounds and learning opportunities to Vietnamese students wishing to enter and explore the upscale IT world, INTEK and the Youth Development Science & Technology Center (TST) signed a co-operation agreement to promote such key projects as TEKtalks and NextGen to encourage the creativity and research of students.

Accordingly, INTEK and TST will jointly host a series of TEKtalks’, which are scheduled seminars and workshops at INTEK’s premises, led by recognised industry experts who will provide insights on latest tech trends. Within the TEK2Students project – a part of the TEKtalks series – students will have a chance to embrace their talent in various topics, especially in science, technology, and soft skills. At these workshops, students will be able to discuss and interact directly with INTEK’s experts to understand the bigger picture of this field as well as how to become highly-versatile IT professionals that can tackle the digital revolution, explore the real-world of the IT industry, and discover their inner talents for a long and satisfying career.

In addition, to further sponsor talented IT students, INTEK also granted 50 starter programming scholarships to TST under its NextGen project, offering students at universities in Ho Chi Minh City comprehensive training courses. INTEK and TST believe that such a comprehensive training course will lead to the necessary professional and soft skills for fostering future-ready IT talents for the industry’s challenges of tomorrow."

Through its Starter Programming training courses, the NextGen series offers a framework for students to experience the entirely project-based e-learning model, created by INTEK and applied for the first time in Vietnam. The course covers all industry-relevant learning tracks, including coding with python, data science, and web front-end development, as well as teaching students essential soft skills in areas such as presentation, communication, time management, and teamwork, among others. With INTEK’s approach, students are able learn how to learn by themselves and gain crucial experience right from the get-go, preparing them with everything they need to embrace the digital revolution in the real IT world.

“I am very impressed with INTEK’s innovative training method,” said Tran Duc Su, vice director of the Youth Development Science & Technology Center, at the ceremony. “This comprehensive model helps students to approach realistic projects and products. We hope that INTEK will not only further support our city’s Youth Union in operating effectively and expanding the IT playground but also contribute to making this playground become more fruitful.”
