1. The necessity and the objective of training cooperation programs.

1.1. The necessity of cooperation programs and cooperative training

          The strategy of economic - societal development for 2011-2020, the Congress of the No 11 National Communist Party of Vietnam , clearly pointed to educational development as a top national policy. Pivotal factors which are essential for this goal are radical innovation, along with comprehensive Vietnam education towards standardization, modernization, socialization, democratization and international integration, and including  advancing  educational management, developing teachers and the management staff.

          As the socio-economic development plan until the year 2020 for  Thanh Hoa province, the target for human resource development in the province for the years 2011-2020 is to improve the quality of the teaching staff, advance the construction of an effective  management staff, experts staff, and scientific staff of corporate governance with superior qualifications and meet the requirements of the socio - economic and international integration process. Thanh Hoa Provincial Party also determined that for  the succeeding  period, human resource requirements in the field of education  and management advances in quantity and quality, not only in the field of management, but also  in economic development of an experts staff in the fields of basic science, and having important contribution in the revitalization of the province.

          Thanh Hoa has many industrial zones which were formed and placed into operation, including Nghi Son with an area 18 611 ha, the 4 main ones being  Le Mon Industrial Zone, Tay Bac Ga, Bim Son, Lam Son; expected by 2020 are  the additions of 5 new industrial zones and one high-tech zone. It is expected that in the coming period, the demand for skilled labor for these industrial zone to be very high. By 2015 they will require 95.6 thousand additional people; by 2020 they will need 171 thousand more people. In particular, demand for labor training over the period from 2011 - 2015 is 77.2 thousand people; the period from 2016 - 2020 is 128.3 thousand people; of which trained and skilled tech workers  required for the period of 2011 - 2015 is 38.4 thousand people, including undergraduate and postgraduate workers is 3.4 thousand people.

          Derived from the demand of socio - economic development mentioned above, Hong Duc University has been training thousands of graduates and awarding university and college diplomas in many different fields. In respond to the requirements of international integration, the university is determined to make improvement, advancing the quality of education and training capabilities through standardized training programs conducted at the university, as well as setting up cooperative training programs with prestigious universities with those  countries having developed advanced education systems.

          Based on the determination of the need by the labour market, intensity of the university and cooperation agreements with foreign universities, Hong Duc university has set up cooperation training programs in Applied Physics and Technology, schemes 1+2, with Zielona Gora University, which is one of the renowned  universities in Poland, providing training for many high quality occupations, follows the standard framework and is recognized and respected throughout the European Union.

          From academic year 2013 - 2014 , Hong Duc university has sent 11 learners to be trained at Zielona Gora University, including 04 in Applied Physics, Applied Physics and Technology, and Computer Physics undergraduate students; 05 in Environmental Science, Applied Mathematics, and Nano Technology Physics postgraduate students; 02 learners in Quantum Optics doctoral courses, in accordance with the   Thanh Hoa Oversea Scholarship program and the training cooperative and science research program between Hong Duc University and Zielona Gora University. The students have been adapting to the environment and living condition in Poland, as well as instructional programs. To date, one graduated student has returned to Thanh Hoa. Students graduating from Zielona Gora University will be a highly regarded and sought after human resource and will have completed the appropriated majors for the provincial socio - economic development strategy.
