A Vietnamese delegation representing the Tay Nguyen University, Industrial University of Vinh and Thu Dau Mot University visited CYPE's facilities in order to learn how the leading software company for architecture, engineering and construction in Spain operates and to find out about CYPE's collaboration with the University of Alicante (UA) through its student internship programmes.
The meeting, which has been managed by the International Project Management Office OGPI of the UA, is part of the V2WORK project co-funded by the European Union, which aims to improve the internship and entrepreneurship experience of Vietnamese students and graduates.
During the visit, representatives from these Vietnamese universities showed special interest in how CYPE integrates students into well-established, high-performance work teams, making it easier for students to combine internships with their studies through a flexible schedule, reduced working hours and financial support.
"We have been collaborating with the universities near our headquarters for more than ten years with remarkable success and an excellent experience, which is reflected in the fact that more than half of the students who do internships with us decide to continue their professional careers at CYPE after graduating", emphasises Carlos Fernández, CYPE's technical director.
Laying the foundations for future collaboration
The Vietnamese delegation's visit to CYPE also helped to lay the foundations for a possible collaboration between Vietnamese universities and CYPE through the introduction of CYPE software in their classrooms and the learning of the different programs by the students.
"In recent months we have intensified our sales missions in Asia and closed deals with companies in Singapore and Malaysia, so a future collaboration with universities in Vietnam would be a very important boost to position our brand in the area", explains Carlos Fernández.
The representatives of the Vietnamese delegation were Tong Thi Lan Chi (Tay Nguyen University), Le My Hanh (Industrial University of Vinh) and Tat Trung (Thu Dau Mot University).
