Undergoing more than half of a century of development, VIMARU has been facing to many difficulties and challenges such as limitation of budget from government, limited and obsolete facilities, lack of teaching staff, high density of students with very low tuition fee, and especially, limited chances for students to be trained on board training ships, shipyards and other manufacturing sites. For overcoming these difficulties and challenges, since 1990s, VIMARU had decesively renovated the organization system, especially and strongly focused on the enhancement of the linkage with industries and also, the enhancement of the international relations. In this paper, the experiences and results from the mentioned renovation process of the Vietnam Maritime University are presented. }, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Maritime Education and Training (MET), MET System in Vietnam, Educational Reform, MET Facilities, MET Institutions, International Relations, Quality Management System, Training Requirements} }
