It is another commitment with Vietnam made by Intel, not only supporting HCM City in training high-quality human resources but also contributing to the city’s vision for applying the Internet of Things (IoT) in the Smart City project, said IPV General Manager Sherry Boger.

The awarded students will begin their courses at the ASU on August 17 and graduate one year later. They will focus on research and project based solutions (including IoT solutions) geared towards developing a smart city for HCM City.

The students will then return to Vietnam to work with the city’s departments and agencies in the Smart City development for 3 years. The project will cover various fields, including reducing traffic congestion and accidents, coping with environmental pollution and urban flooding, enhancing manpower quality, administrative reforms, e-government services, and urban development.
