In order to raise people’s awareness of hand washing, ensuring personal hygiene to prevent diseases, NTU offered nearly 60 automatic hand sanitizer sprayers that are designed and manufactured by lecturers - students to units and schools in Khanh Hoa and Phu Yen provinces.
Automatic hand sanitizer sprayer is designed and manufactured by lecturers - students of NTU. This device works automatically, when users put their hands under the spout of the machine, the sensor will recognize and activate hand sanitizer liquid to automatically flow out, users do not need to touch anywhere on the machine, thereby helping hand washing process safer, minimizing the possibility of cross infection.
Forming ideas from the end of March 2020 - when the situation of Covid-19 epidemic was complicated, the first automatic hand sanitizer spayer created by lecturers - students of NTU promptly met the needs of hand washing, preventing epidemics in the university. With the desire to share the useful and innovative machine to people, lecturers and students of NTU continued to research, improve functions and the appearance of the machine to make it easy to install, convenient in use and maintenance to offer to receivers.
Previously, NTU also built and offered rice ATM to the Khanh Hoa Red Cross and Khanh Hoa Provincial Youth Union to serve charity rice to people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

June 4, 2020: NTU received the certificate of quality accreditation from Center for Education Accreditation – Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City for two training programs: Seafood Processing Technology and Ship Engineering. These are the two traditional programs of the University from the early time of establishment.
A premilinary evaluation of these two training programs were conducted by the experts on September 5, 2019 and the official evaluation was on September 16-19, 2019. Evaluation activities included: checking documentation, interviewing related groups, surveying infrastructure, observing teaching-learning activities, etc. The two training programs satisfied 92% of criteria, assessed by the accreditation council. Previously, these two training programs were self-assesed by the University based on a system of 11 standards and 60 specific criteria as prescribed by the Ministry of Education and Training.
The implementation of quality accreditation for training programs has been recognized and invested in by NTU, demonstrating the University's responsibility to society, ensuring rights for learners. Participating in quality accreditation also contributes to ensure training quality standards, creating motivation for continuous, systematic improvement of quality. For learners, the quality accreditation for training programs will be a useful base in choosing the appropriate field of study, choosing the right school, and ensuring the quality of learning.
A “zero- Vietnam Dong market” was organized by NTU Youth Union and Students Union in order to support students when they returned to school after Covid-19 break. This free market was sponsored by businesses as well as individuals and departments in the university.
Nha Trang University has just awarded four "Rice ATMs" to organizations in Khanh Hoa province including the People's Committee of Van Ninh district, Khanh Hoa Youth Union and Khanh Hoa Red Cross Association in order to join hands to support those in need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
These "Rice ATMs" were designed and manufactured by Faculty of Mechanical Engineering - Nha Trang University, based on some criteria such as stable operation, quick and accurate delivery of rice, easy to use, maintain and repair. The team manufactured many trial versions to maximize the advantages and overcome the disadvantages before manufacturing the final machine version with high accuracy and usefulness.
The "Rice ATM" size is 1.1x0.6x2m, the empty weight is 75kg. The machine body is made of corrugated iron, its capacity is up to 350kg of rice which can serve 175 times continuously, and will continue to operate when rice is added to the machine. The frame is made of zinc-steel material, ensuring the steadiness and aesthetics. The controller is designed from locally available components, easy to replace and repair as needed. When receiving rice, users need to press the button at the foot, the signal will notify the controller to dispense rice. Rice will be distributed with a weight of about 2kg each time.
When the button is pressed, the machine will measure and deliver about 2kg in a period of 3-10 seconds.
Duration for receiving rice is about 3-10 seconds, which is considered to be quick compared to many machines currently used in other localities. “It can be said that lecturers of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering - Nha Trang University have created a very useful machine by their creativities. With the quick duration of delivering and getting rice, people don’t have to wait too long; it is also solving the main disadvantage of the current “rice ATM” in other localities. We are very happy and grateful to Nha Trang University for gifting us these machines. We hope that this activity will become more and more widespread”, Mr. Nguyen Khac Duy - Vice Chairman of Khanh Hoa Youth Federation shared.
Earlier, Nha Trang University also made a donation of more than 2 tons of rice to those in need affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in Khanh Hoa province. These are community engagement and service activities being actively implemented by the University, with the goal of connecting and accompanying the development of the community.
