Two sides signed a cooperation agreement in 2008, whereby MAI was ready to coordinate to consult on the purchase of equipment for practice and research on Aerospace Research at VNU-UET, to build training cooperation programs such as 2 + 2 (bachelor). This support is a premise for School of Aerospace Engineering, VNU-UET to internationalize the upcoming training program for engineers and masters.
In 2018, the delegation of VNU-UET signed a cooperation agreement on aerospace with the Moscow Aviation Institute
Prof. Chu Duc Trinh emphasized that VNU-UET pledged to prioritize the discussion activities between the two sides so that the research and training cooperation activities could soon be carried out.
