Study Tour: Sustainable Water Management Vietnam

Vietnam waterscape

This September, the School of Chemical Engineering and the School of Architecture and Civil Engineering are teaming up to run a two-week study tour to provide students the chance to advance their knowledge in sustainable water management against the backdrop of Vietnam’s stunning waterscapes, bustling cities and industry plants.

Travelling across Vietnam, you will study and collaborate with students at our partner Universities, learning about Vietnam’s wastewater systems and rapidly developing infrastructure. A visit to the Australian Embassy will allow students to learn about Australia’s partnership with Vietnam, and cultural activities will include the Halong Bay Cultural Experience, Tram Chim National Park, Saigon River, War Remnants Museum and Ben Thanh Market, Cu Chi Tunnels and Cai Rang Floating Market.

This study tour has been made possible thanks to the New Colombo Plan, a signature initiative of the Australian Government which aims to lift knowledge in Australia of the Indo-Pacific by supporting Australian undergraduates to study in the region. Eligible Australian students will receive a New Colombo Plan Mobility Grant of 3,000 AUD to subsidise the cost of this program.

Chemical Engineering students will receive credit towards CHEM ENG 3036 - Unit Operations Laboratory, while Architecture and Civil Engineering students will receive credit towards CEME 4010 - Water Resource Systems for Changing Climates for this study tour.

Read more and apply via our website by the 15 June 2023 deadline.
