At 10.30am, 12nd August 2014, Faculty of Civil Engineering continued Journal Club’s activities with the presentations of Dr. Tu Anh Trinh about Ecological Indicator ("Accessibility to green space: GIS based indicators for Sustainable planning in a dense urban context" - Elsevier 42, 2014, page 122-134) and Dr. Le Minh Ngo about Urban Planning and Design ("Co-evolution: a model for renovation of traditional urban fringe of Villages in Guangzhou, China",Journal of Asian Architecture and Building Engineering)

Those who attend meetings are faculty leaderships, Ms.Ngoc Hang Pham - an expert from Department of Science and Technology Development and faculty lecturers and officials.

At the beginning, Dr. Tu Anh Trinh presented "Accessibility to green space: GIS based indicators for Sustainable planning in a dense urban context". She highlighted the main content of the article: the role and importance of green space in urban areas, not only on environmental issues but also on attention to the interests of vulnerable objects such as children, the elderly; thereby measuring the area which lack access to green space with reasonable method. Specific conclusions of the topic (the impact of the outcome variables) as well as implications for urban planning were also presented in detail.

Lately, Dr. Le Minh Ngo introduced a model for innovation of traditional villages in urban fringe of Guangzhou, China through analyzing two existing typical models. Based on the research, the authors proposed a new model: Co-evolution model with main idea which is to establish an intermediate space supporter between the urban and village. Besides, Dr. Le Minh Ngo’s also gave out his personal opinion for the content of research articles. Finally, Dr. Le Minh Ngo shared more about the process of a publish on international journals. Therefore, people understood more about the difficulties that confront scientists to get recognition from their research on international scientific journals.

The presentations had attracted the attention and comments of the faculty. Associate Professor.Dr.Bich Thuy Le Thi and Ms.Minh Hoang Tran raises questions for the topic "Accessibility to green space: GIS based indicators for Sustainable planning in a dense urban context" - presented by Dr. Trinh Tu Anh. The questions focused into the practical application as well as research methods of the subject in Vietnam. 
Dr.Chuong Tran also expressed his interest in the project "Co-evolution: a model for renovation of traditional urban fringe of Villages in Guangzhou, China". He wonder whether the development application research in models was carried out in Vietnam


The faculty focuson content of Dr. Le Minh Ngo’sarticle

At the end of the discussion, Dr.Chuong Tran has proposed the establishment of two research groups and has been enthusiastically endorsed by the faculty.
1. Research Team of Civil Engineering: Head by Dr. Van Vuong Do Nguyen with department’s Doctors and Masters.
2. Research Team of Architecture & Planning: Head by Dr. Le Minh Ngo and department’s Doctors and Masters.
The faculty also discussed and planed activities for each team in the future. The most important was that each team aims to have at least one article published in the first to third ranked international journal.

May 30th 2014 at 13:00 pm, in room B205, Civil Engineering Faculty cooperated with Vietnam HSD Company to organize "Tekla BIM Workshop - The best solution for civil engineers" successfully.

The board, lecturers, invited guesses and students of civil engineering faculty attended this events.

At the beginning, Dr. Phan Truong Son shared his opinions about this activity. That was a good chance for civil engineering students to study and gain more experiences in practice. Besides that, the faculty lecturers also have more opportunities to seek a new technology.

After that, Ms. Le To Quyen made a brief introduction about Ton Duc Thang University and Civil Engineering Faculty. Then, Vietnam HSD representatives introduced Tekla software which well-known as a good choice for those who were working in civil engineering field especially in Concrete Design, Steel Structure or Construction Management. The representative showed in detail how to use this software and its utilities.

This activity seemed to attract the concerns of students that was showed through their questions especially about its application in course projects.

The workshop ended at 16:00 pm in the same day.
