HEEAP focuses on modernization and transformation of teaching and learning in undergraduate engineering programs in Vietnam with over 36,000 faculty and university leaders trained with over a $30M investment. A companion program, Vocational-University Leadership Innovation Institute, enhances the skills of academic leaders through intensive professional development experiences in Vietnam and the U.S. BUILD-IT (Building University-Industry Learning and Development through Innovation and Technology) is third major project that ASU is implementing for USAID in Vietnam. BUILD-IT will emphasize industry’s investment and “voice,” developing relevant hands-on applied curricula; improved opportunities for student internships and co-ops; a maker innovation network; national quality assessment and international accreditation and recognition; and institutional policy and leadership for increased scope, scale and sustainable impact.
