Ceremony held in Tokyo for FPT program, with all Vietnamese students graduating.
Forty-four FPT students in the 10,000 Bridge Engineers Program have graduated in Tokyo.
Forty-three were in the program’s first academic year while one was in the second academic year. An FPT representative told VET that the student in the second academic year was so talented he graduated earlier.
Upon graduating all students will be employed immediately. Eighty per cent will work at major companies in Japan such as Fujitsu, SBI Holdings, Human Touch, Pasona Tech, and the FPT Japan JSC, while the remaining 20 per cent will work at Japanese projects of FPT’s partners.
The 10,000 Bridge Engineers Program was started in 2015 by FPT Software and has trained almost 1,000 Vietnamese students, 300 of which were trained in Japan.
In 2016 the program is expected to conduct four courses in Japan, in January, April, July, and October.
Within FPT Software’s globalization strategy Japan is the most important market to bring stable development, said Mr. Tran Dang Hoa, Managing Director of the FPT Japan JSC.
As at late 2015 FPT Japan had three offices, with a new office in Tokyo on 1,300 sq m, and 500 employees, or 40 per cent more than in the previous year.
