The seminar “Young Woman Scientist Workshop Camp & Smart Sister 2016" took place from October 22nd to 23rd 2016 at Deajeon, South Korea. This is an annual program by The Association of Korean Scientists and Engineers Woman (KWSE). This activity is a part of woman engineers and scientists network of Asia and the Pacific region (Asia & Pacific Nation Network - APNN). This seminar is a good opportunity for those outstanding young woman scientists and engineers to meet, connect and exchange knowledge. This program has attracted 150 women scientists and engineers from 24 different member countries of APNN to participate.
University of Transport and Communications was so honored to send one of the two representatives of Vietnam, the young female lecturer of Descriptive Geometry – Technical Drawing Section, MSc Nguyen Thi Quynh Nhu to attend this conference, who also has been awarded The Best Poster Award. Her performance deserved to be the representative of UTC’s female scientists in particular and representative for Vietnam women in general to international friends.
