Siemens Digital Industries Software announced a new collaboration with Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) to nurture talent and promote workforce development for the semiconductor industry in Vietnam. With the goal of becoming an internationally standardized science and technology hub and a driver of new growth for the Southeast region and the nation, SHTP is aiming to construct and develop foundational/strategic industries for Vietnam.

With the goal of promoting technology transfer, nurture talent and foster collaboration between academia and industry to drive sustainable innovation and development, SHTP identified growing the Vietnam semiconductor industry as a key development strategy and turned to Siemens to help. The collaboration brings together Siemens’ portfolio of EDA software with Integrated Circuit (IC) and printed circuit board (PCB) design training courses built with the experience of Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) in training for the semiconductor industry.

Established in 2002, the Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) in Ho Chi Minh City spans across 913 hectares with the objective of fostering the development of high-tech industries and promoting innovative activities within the region. SHTP currently has over 162 active investment projects, from startups, through research organizations to those initiated by multinational corporations.

“We are living in an age of ever accelerating digital innovation, where world-wide knowledge, commerce and communication are broadly accessible and literally at our fingertips,” said Nina Lin, Vice President and General Manager of South East Asia, EDA, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “The pace of digital transformation will accelerate even more rapidly as more companies begin to incorporate AI into their systems to leverage and monetize the exponentially increasing amount of data produced by all things digital. Siemens’ technologies empower customers to transform their industries and lead the market while supporting the development of human resources for industries, especially the semiconductor industry.”

"At Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) we have identified workforce development in the semiconductor industry as one of the our key focal activities - in the terms of realizing the city's semiconductor industry development goals but also to contribute to our vision of becoming a science and technology center - as a new driver for the south-east region and Vietnam as a whole,” said Nguyen Anh Thi, Head of the Management Board of the Saigon Hi-Tech Park.

“We believe that the collaboration between SHTP and Siemens can help to accelerate workforce development in the semiconductor field and provide opportunities for students to access advanced technologies in design and design verification of semiconductor circuits – helping them to accumulate the practical experience needed to succeed. We believe that this cooperation will significantly contributes to enhance the operational capacity of the Electronic and Semiconductor Training Center (ESC) and to the development of the semiconductor industry for Ho Chi Minh City, as well as the overall economic growth of Vietnam."
