Building a smart university

The first ERP system is applied in training, student management and other operational management processes are being implemented gradually. Currently, Hoa Sen University is taking the first solid steps in digital transformation of university operations and administration.
Currently, Hoa Sen University is gradually improving its computer software for teaching and learning.
The university is implementing many e-learning classes and “blended learning” (integrated learning methods between in-person class and online class). According to the roadmap, all programs have a certain number of appropriate courses organized in these forms. The university is also implementing artificial intelligence in teaching and learning as well as in university operation.
Learning outcomes assessment methods as well as feedback and internal information from all subjects in the school can be implemented via mobile apps.
With the strength of a multidisciplinary university, in 2019, Hoa Sen University started implementing a research project on STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, Math) applied in higher education and the community. This will be a contribution in terms of practical application of Hoa Sen University in preparing for young generation to be ready to adapt to the new stage of development.
