Along with the development of economy and society, Vietnam is facing a challenge of training a skilled labor force. This requires improving the education system, especially higher education, to meet society needs. As one of the flagship universities in Vietnam, the Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM) System has spearheaded many initiatives to improve the quality of education in Vietnam. A key effort in these initiatives is VNU-HCM’s leadership in adopting and adapting CDIO principles to build a model framework for widespread implementation of CDIO in Vietnam. In this paper, we present the first year experience of implementing CDIO at VNU-HCM from the point of view of a system of universities and the achievements that we have accomplished.
