John Rome awarded ASU President's Award for Innovation - 2015

BY JASON STRIKER – APRIL 23, 2015

In 2010, Intel approached ASU to pursue a USAID Global Development Alliance grant, which would bring co-investment from a consortium of higher-education, industry and government partners, allowing Vietnamese engineering faculty to train at ASU as well as participate in ASU-led, in-country workshops.

One of this year’s recipients of the President’s Award for Innovation, the Higher Engineering Education Alliance Program (HEEAP) is giving Vietnamese engineering faculty the knowledge and skills to graduate work-ready students who possess the applied and technical communication skills required by multinational corporations.

Since the project started in 2010, over 250 Vietnamese engineering faculty have been trained at ASU and over 1500 have participated in ASU-led in-country workshops. These training workshops focus on teacher development with the goal of modernizing the traditional Vietnamese theory-based engineering programs by introducing applied, hands-on instructional approaches. With the knowledge and skills acquired through HEEAP, our partner schools are now graduating work-ready students who possess the applied and technical communication skills required by multinational corporations. 

This year the UTO's very own John Rome was honored with the HEEAP team with the President's Award for Innovation
