Awards were presented to students with excellent
participation during the conference with Professor

On Oct 12th, 2008, Professor Martin R. Radley from Carnegie Mellon University School of Software Engineering came to Vietnam to further strengthen the training collaboration between the University and the Software Engineering Group (SEGVietnam), which includes HanoiCTT (the training arm of DTT), Duy Tan University and Van Lang University. SEGVietnam sends Vietnamese instructors annually to attend the training courses at Carnegie Mellon, while Carnegie Mellon professors would also come to Vietnam to further assist with the course delivery and training quality.

On Oct 18th, 2008, HanoiCTT held a conference called "Software Engineering - A chance to be a world class citizen", at Hanoi University of Technology that was presided over by Professor Radley. The conference took place successfully with the attendance of more than 300 students. A very open discussion was held with HanoiCTT lecturers about people development and software risk management. HanoiCTT then organized the Effective Software Project Management seminar at its main office, attracting a large number of Project Managers and Software Team Leaders from various software companies in Vietnam.

Professor Radley's visit following the training programs this past summer provides continuity to the initial training, and was highly welcomed and appreciated by IT lecturers, students and software engineers. As part of the interview with Saigon Computer World about the benefits of introducing the Carnegie Mellon software engineering training programs into Vietnam, Trung Nguyen, Vice Chairman & Managing Director of DTT, said: "This training program contributes significantly to the development of high quality IT resources in Vietnam, and allows us to raise our competitiveness to a global level. The value of this program is not only in the training curriculum but also in the students' ability in accessing the cradle of software engineering technology and keeping up with the global software knowledge".
