Swinburne is proud to be in alliance with FPT, the largest information technology service company in the private sector in Vietnam and FPT Education, the leading private education in providing high quality of education and a large number of human resources for economic growth and digital transformation in Vietnam and the global market.

During the ceremony, Swinburne University of Technology (Vietnam) was honorably welcomed the Honorable Linda Dessau – Governor of Victoria, Australia, Ms. Robyn Mudie – Australian Ambassador in Vietnam, Mr. Bui The Duy, Deputy Minister, the Ministry of Science and Technology, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Truong Gia Binh – Chairman of FPT Corporation, Prof. Duncan Bentley – Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Swinburne University of Technology, Dr. Nguyen Khac Thanh, Vice-Chancellor of FPT University, Mr. Brett Stevens, Commissioner for Victoria to Southeast Asia, Dr. Hoang Viet Ha – Director of Swinburne Vietnam, and other regarded participants. 

At the ceremony, the Honorable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria in Australia, Dr. Truong Gia Binh, Chairman of FPT Corporation and Prof. Duncan Bentley gave their speeches respectively. Together, they cut the ribbon with leaders of Swinburne University Vietnam. 

Indeed, Swinburne University Vietnam (a member of FPT Education) has received great attention from the governments of both Vietnam and Australia in the relationship of educational cooperation between the two sides.

By this international cooperation, FPT commits to provide a full support to Swinburne Vietnam in terms of integrating industry and connecting academic teaching with the updated movement of global industries while Swinburne also promises to deliver high quality teaching, learning and research.

“Together, Swinburne and FPT will expand student learning opportunities and deliver high quality and employable graduates, taking advantage of each partner’s global networks. Swinburne students in Vietnam will have opportunities to study in Melbourne and Sarawak, while Swinburne students in Melbourne and Sarawak can travel to Vietnam for study, internships and potentially work in an FPT global location,” says Swinburne Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Duncan Bentley.

Currently, Swinburne University Vietnam is offering the competitive tuition fee of only USD 18,000 (3 years full time) merely after providing 10% scholarship to all applicants for 2019-2020 academic year for international students.

Swinburne University of Technology has a history of 110 years in Melbourne, in the state of Victoria, Australia. Swinburne is an internationally recognized university and a provider of a range of certificates, diplomas, degrees and post-graduate programs both in Australia and overseas. As a century growing up, Swinburne has continuously committed to innovative education and strengthen industry engagement and social inclusion. Until now, Swinburne has been a large and culturally diverse organisation. 

Meanwhile, FPT Education (a member of FPT Corporation – Vietnam’s largest global IT service company in the private sector) with its 20 years of establishment has now become a leading private education in Vietnam. FPT Education focuses on developing a ‘new generation university’ with a modern educational philosophy which combines training activities with the actual need for skills in the country, leveraging Vietnam to a level at which it can compete with developed countries in the world. 

With the same focus on digital transformation for social and economic impact and delivering a highly skilled workforce as Vietnam embraces Industry 4.0, FPT Education and Swinburne finally made a decision to collaborate with each other in April 2019 and started the first classes in September this year.
