Maker space opens to TVU students


(TVU) – On September 17th, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Pham Tiet Khanh, TVU Rector and Mr. Phillip M. Adams and his wife along with the contractor, students and teachers attended the groundbreaking ceremony of Maker Space building.

According to Dr. Pham Quoc Phong, Deputy Dean of TVU school of Engineering and Technology, maker space is a place for students and teachers to exchange and develop their ideas through various activities such as designing and making new products.  In this place, they are equipped with experimental tools and materials, which help the students fulfill their graduation thesis as well as research. 

Apart from fostering new initiative, TVU students are also given opportunity to extend their social relationships with enterprises.  Additionally, this offers useful platforms where TVU students can exchange their ideas with international friends via online system. 

With the total area of 400m2, the maker space building consists of two floors, each of which is divided into five rooms used for student group activities and teachers’ research. 

The building is estimated to put into use at the end of March next year.
