Research and Development Centers
Center for Computer Network and E-Learning
The Center for Computer Network and E-Learning (CCNE) was established in March 2005 as an Information Communication Technology (ICT) service unit of UET with the following tasks: (i) to administer, monitor and maintain the technical infrastructure of networks and network services aiming to ensure smooth and stable communications and exploration of on-line resources supporting teaching and research acitivities of staff and students; (ii) to administer and to monitor the e-learning resources and to provide e-learning services on demand of staff and students; (iii) to conduct R&D projects in the development of infrastructure and facilities for a digital UET.
The CCNE team has succeeded to maintain and ensure the smooth operation of ICT infrastructure and facilities and to managed organized network services within the UET, enabling 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 collegial activities (LDAP system, Video conferencing system, LMS system, etc.) including teleconference services for the international communications between UET and overseas partner institutions. CCNE has the mission to become an R&D centre for networks and e-learning services to effectively support training and other activities at UET.
Center for Software Engineering Research and Development
The Center for Software Engineering Research and Development (CSERD) was established at The Faculty of Technology by VNU President in June 2003 and reorganized by the Decision of the Rector of UET in March 2005. The center operates in its own legal status with an own bank account. Its is entrusted with the following tasks: (i) to carry out R&D software engineering research projects; (ii) to conduct technology transfer and provide ICT consultancy; and (iii) to participate in undergraduate and graduate training programs in Software Engineering as assigned by the UET Rector.
Over the years, the Center has developed and released a number of significant products that have been highly appreciated and recognized in the community; to name a few as the followings:
- Software Package for Management and Evaluation of Testing Exams based on Image Pattern Recognition (under the name: Mr. Test) was awarded the First Prize in the “Vietnam Great Talents” Contest in 2006 and a Silver Cup in “IT Gold Cup” Contest awarded by Vietnam Association for Information Processing (VAIP) in 2007. From 2008, this Software Package has been used as a commercial product by approximately 350 educational institutions;
- The Software Package “NetOffice” for Administration Office Documents Management through Internet was awarded the First Prize in the National “IT Product” Contest in 2001.
- Software Package SEMIS for management of teaching and learning acivities in credit-based university education and training. This is currently in use at all member universities of VNU and at Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology.
Center for Electronics and Telecommunications Research
The Center for Electronics and Telecommunications Research (CETR) was established as a research and development center of the former Faculty of Technology by the decision of VNU President in March 2001 and reorganized by the decision of the Rector of UET in March 2005. The center operates in its own legal status with an own bank account. Its is entrusted with the following tasks: (i) to conduct R&D research on Electronics and Telecommunications Technology, (ii) to develop, fabricate and distribute specific electronic products for application of modern technologies in communication, (iii) to provide science and technology services including: consultancy, technology transfer, and (iv) to contribute to the improvement of professional capability in Electronics and ICT.
Research areas concern low-interference, ultrahigh 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.
Significant products have been developed; to name a few as the followings:
- 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.
Currently CETR is hosting the research and development project “Investigations on design and fabrication of a signal transmitter, receiver and processing system for broad band signals in national sovereignty identification” (power upto 3000 W at 20 GHz working frequency as the main technical specifications) under the National Research and Development Programs.
