The cooperation will enable the university to approach SAP’s sustainable digital transformation so as to develop a sound technology platform in its training system, while approaching new Industry 4.0 technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning, as well as design thinking.
Students of the university (HUST), especially those majoring in IT, business administration, and ELITECH, will benefit from the MoU.
