A delegation from Hanoi Architectural University (HAU) visited the School of Architecture and Built Environment on November 30, 2018, to renew it’s memorandum of understanding with the School. The delegation members consist of the Rector of HAU, the President of University Board, the Director of Institute of International Training and Cooperation, and a lecturer. Deakin staff presented the visitors with the history and the current teaching and research of the university and gave them a tour of PaperSpace, the School’s exhibition of outstanding student work. Three former HAU students that are currently studying at Deakin University joined the meeting and School tour.

HAU has been the first and leading university of higher education and research in architecture and construction in Vietnam since it was founded in 1969. HAU has approximately 11,000 undergraduate and 800 postgraduate students. HAU offers doctoral programs in architecture, urban and regional planning, urban and construction management, construction techniques, infrastructure techniques, urban heritage design and sustainable development. This is an excellent outcome for the School and we are proud to celebrate it.
