HÀ NỘI — Affirming its commitment to shaping the future engineering talent of the country, Honeywell announced scholarships to 20 Vietnamese students majoring in chemical engineering across leading universities in Việt Nam.
This is the fifth year that Honeywell is sponsoring the scholarship program. In addition to the Hà Nội University of Science, HCM City University of Technology and PetroVietnam University, the scholarships this year will also include students from the University of Đà Nẵng - University of Science and Technology.
“Not only does this scholarship provide funds for the students’ education but they also get to work with our engineers and experts,” said Jim Rekoske, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Honeywell UOP.
“The eight-week internship was a valuable opportunity for me to gain the latest knowledge and experience from a leading company in petroleum engineering,” said Đinh Thị Hà Phương, student at HCM City University of Technology, and one of the students who completed the internship at Honeywell UOP last summer.
Honeywell UOP also provides an annual lecture series on refining and petrochemicals to 12 leading universities across Việt Nam, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia, as well as Myanmar, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Honeywell started operations in Việt Nam in 2005, with offices set up in both Hà Nội and HCM City. Technologies from Honeywell UOP are being used in PetroVietnam’s Dung Quất Refinery, the first refinery to be built in Việt Nam, and many others. — VNS
