Siemens Aids Vietnam’s Next Engineers

The German engineering company Siemens is donating $71 million in software for Vetnam’s engineering universities through the Higher Education Engineering Alliance that also includes USAID, Arizona State University, and Intel.

The gift will help Vietnam develop its technical workforce needed for high-tech manufacturing, and it also will help Siemans solidify its dominant position as a corporate friend of Vietnam.

The software will go to universities in Hanoi, Danang, Can Tho, and Saigon and will help prepare Vietnamese students for the global economy.  So far  few American companies other than Intel have made major commitments to helping.
