Vice President attends opening of YTU research centre

VICE President Dr Sai Mauk Kham made a speech at the opening ceremony of the technological research centre at the Yangon Technological University in Insein Township, Yangon, on  Monday. Also present were union ministers, the chief minister of the Yangon Region government, the chairman and members of leading committees of technological universities and students. Six outstanding students formally opened the centre at the ceremony, and the vice president unveiled the signboard and stone plaque of the building before inspecting the facility. Union Minister for Science and Technology Dr Ko Ko Oo reported on facts about the centre to the vice president in the briefing hall of the building. In the vice president’s speech, he said the technological university, a friendship gift from the former Soviet Union, was founded in 1961 as the Burma Institute of Technology, and it was renamed the Rangoon Institute of Technology in 1963 before it was transferred to the Ministry of Science and Technology in 1997. It has educated over 30,000 engineers, and some of them have performed nation-building tasks, the vice president said. As research is important for any university, the research capacity of YTU will contribute to future technological education, the vice president added. With the development of technology, the university needs new buildings, streets and water and electricity supplies, as well as competent faculty members, modern teaching aids, lab equipment, modern information technology and lab technicians, the vice president pointed out. Although the government is providing assistance as much as it can, the university must partner with universities in ASEAN and other countries and technological organisations, the vice president said. The university was also provided with lab equipment worth US$1 million from the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund, and it is conducting research in cooperation with universities in Japan, Finland, South Korea and Thailand, according to the vice president. The vice president said he was proud of the 42 faculty members from the university who obtained their doctorate degrees in Japan and international recognition of all undergraduate courses at the university. In conclusion, the vice president pointed out that the research centre is a contribution of the government for the development of research, and he urged all present to preserve the centre. Then, an undergraduate student expressed his thanks for the centre.
