Professeur Nguyen Huu Loc

Spotlight on Vietnam with our invited Professor Nguyen Huu Loc

This month of May, Grenoble INP Esisar has the honor to welcome Professor Nguyen Huu Loc, Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, within Hô Chi Minh City University of Technology, in Vietnam.
With over 14 000 students every year, this prominent university includes eleven faculties. The faculty of Mechanical Engineering is the largest ones with more than 100 teaching staff (50 PhD and 50 professors and associate professors). It offers 6 undergraduate programs, but also graduate and post-graduate programs. Among them, two honors programs, including the PFIEV program, the Vietnamese-French Training Program for Excellent Engineers, are dedicated to the best students in mechanical and mechatronic engineering, after a first year spent in the general program.

The PFIEV is a consortium of nine major French high schools*, including Grenoble INP as one of the founding members. Since its creation in 1997, this joint program is established in four Vietnamese universities (Hanoï Polytechnic Institute, Hô Chi Minh City University, Danang University and Hanoï University of civil engineering) and trains more than 200 high-class engineers per year. “The best students continue their studies in French universities”, says Professor Nguyen Huu Loc, who himself has studied French, Russian and English languages.

Professor Nguyen Huu Loc comes at Esisar in the framework of the PFIEV program. His fields of research and teaching are machine design, geometric modelling and reliability-based design.

We are very proud to welcome him for one month in our research lab, the LCIS, to strengthen our partnership and also our academic and research exchanges.
