Vietnam University Selects Intergraph SmartMarine Enterprise

Press Release
Thursday, March 28, 2013

PetroVietnam University (PVU) joined the Intergraph Education Grant Program.

PVU is located in the offshore oil and gas hub of southern Vietnam, and was established to focus on the development of the country's oil and gas industry. The Vietnamese university recognized that it needs to equip its students with the necessary skills and knowledge so that they are ready to apply the tools that employers already use when they join the work force. PVU will provide its students with access to SmartMarine Enterprise solutions, including SmartMarine 3D, SmartPlant Review, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant Electrical, SmartPlant P&ID and SmartSketch.

Intergraph's ruled-based technology features unique automation capabilities, which was a compelling factor in PVU's decision. In addition, SmartMarine Enterprise is proven in the Vietnamese oil and gas industry, with organizations such as PetroVietnam Marine Shipyard and Vietsovpetro already using Intergraph solutions for the design and construction of offshore facilities.

PVU will incorporate the integrated suite of SmartMarine Enterprise solutions into its computer-aided design curriculum for the marine and petroleum course tracks. PVU is the first higher education institution in Vietnam to use SmartMarine 3D and the SmartMarine Enterprise portfolio in its curriculum.

"There is a growing need for skilled engineers in Vietnam's vibrant oil and gas industry, and we are committed to using the best tools to educate our students," said Dr. Le Phuoc Hao , associate professor and rector of PVU. "Our participation in Intergraph's Education Grant Program is a major achievement for us, and we can now equip both our lecturers and students with the latest, state-of-the-art technology that is used by major engineering companies and owner operators worldwide. This gives our graduates immense opportunity to secure jobs in the thriving local oil and gas industry."
