Research and Development Centers
The CCNE staff has succeeded in maintaining and ensuring the smooth operation of ICT infrastructure and facilities and to manage organized network services within the UET. This enables a full exploitation of equipment and resources provided by the World Bank funded Higher-Education Project and efficient support to training and research, and to other academic activities (LDAP system, Video conferencing system, LMS system, etc.) including teleconference services for the international communications between UET and overseas partner institutions. The CCNE has the mission to become an R&D centre for network and e-learning services to effectively support training and other activities at UET.
Research areas concern low-interference, ultra-high frequency devices built on micro-strip ADS Simulation Software (Ansoft), digital real-time processing techniques, radar engineering, high frequency chips design on Cadence, wireless security and warning systems; technolgy transfer in wireless transmitter and receiver systems, etc.
- Ultra-high frequency passive elements: filter set, deviders, antenas; ultra-high frequency IC, wave covergage software, anti-thief locks, smart boards, etc.
- UHF dual channel decoders, VHF and UHF low noise magnifiers; antitheft wireless system.
CETR has hosted a few significant research and development projects, such as “Investigations on design and fabrication of a signal transmitter, receiver and processing system for broad band signals in national sovereignty identification” (power up to 3000 W at 20 GHz working frequency as the main technical specifications) under the National Research and Development Programs, “Investigation on design and fabrication of high-power microwave transmitting module used in low-attitude radars”.
Center for Joint Training, Science & Technology Services and Knowledge Transfer
The Center for Joint Training, Science & Technology Services and Knowledge Transfer (TSK) was established in September 2011 based on the Office for International Joint Training Programs of the university, which was launched in 2005.
The center operates in its own legal status and is entrusted with the following tasks: (i) to conduct international/domestic joint training programs at undergraduate and master level as well as short upgrading training courses, (ii) to provide science and technology services including but not limited to: consultancy on various aspects of research, on Intellectual Property (IP) issues, technology transfer, and (iii) to contribute to the improvement of professional capability in the research fields of VNU-UET.
The previous office has succeeded in conducting several international joint programs as given under Academic Programs above.
