Through these projects and training programs, the UTC annually sends hundreds of lecturers and students to study and work overseas. Until now, the majority of administrative staffs have visited, studied and exchanged experiences with well-known universities around the world. Currently, 150 lecturers are following master and doctor courses and more than 400 students are attending cooperative programs with different scholarships. This total number will probably increase in the next years through many collaboration programs and projects between the UTC and universities in USA, UK, France, Germany, China and other countries.

Organization of International Seminars and Scientific Researches:

The UTC always coordinates actively with international universities and organizations to organize scientific seminars and implement scientific research projects in transport sector. Many topical seminars and international scientific researches are implemented successfully that got much attention and appreciation of national as well as international scientists and administrative staff. Additionally, these workshops have contributed a lot of effective solutions to transport planning and management and sustainable development in Vietnam.
