A week in Japan has brought a lot of memorable experiences to the students of the Faculty of Information Technology, ranging from the deep impression of the modernity of a country that is scientifically organized, to the warm, attentive feelings from the Japanese people. With all of that, hopefully the DUT students will be able to improve much more in the future in terms of expertise and character, thereby contributing to the good friendship between Vietnam and Japan generally, as well as between the two universities particularly.
