      I.        INTRODUCTION

The Duy Tan 4th Research Summer School is educational programme initiated by researchers from the United Kingdom in association with Duy Tan University. The School aims to improve knowledge and research skills for current or prospective PhD students who are developing their interests in academic research as a very stepping stone towards a successful academic research career. The School consists of a series of talks of academic interest, transferable skills talks, lectured by professors from leading universities in the world,and will provide invited students with the opportunity to present and get feedback on their works in electrical engineering, telecommunications, computer science, and control theory.This is an annual event organised by Duy Tan University. This is the 4th time we have organised this research summer school. Over the three previous occasions, we have been informed that more than 60% of our students have received full-scholarships to pursue their PhD study many different countries, such as US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan etc.

The attendees will have an opportunity to get to know the two PhD scholarships (to work with Associate Professor Trung Q. Duong at Queen’s University Belfast). These scholarships fully cover the tuition fee and living costs in the UK.

This schoolis supported by a Research Environment Links grant, ID 339568416, under the Newton Programme Vietnam partnership. The grant is funded by the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered by the British Council. For further information, please visit
