Since 2008, Shimizu Open Academy (SOA) has been a global activity organized by Shimizu Corporation with its purpose of sharing knowledge and introducing new technologies which are applied in our projects. The seminar is not only operated in Japan but also in different countries around the world.


In Vietnam, SOA was held for the first time in Ho Chi Minh University of Technology (HCMUT) –Ho Chi Minh in 2012 and it was so successful that the Board of Director decided to organize one in the National University of Construction in Hanoi in 2014. Since then SOA has been officially operated in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh annually due to seeing positive feedback and the increased number of potential students who want to join Shimizu Vietnam after being graduated.  


As usual, this year - 2017, Shimizu Corporation has continuously launched SOA seminar in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh with 02 topics: “Case Study for BIM Utilization in Singapore Maple tree Business City (MBC2) Project” and “Advanced Technologies used in Ho Chi Minh MRT project”. The event itself attracted more than 500 participants including university students and other construction companies. It is a good opportunity for technical/construction students to access to modern technologies, have a realistic view on career and build better plans for the future.


Knowing that these students will be a main force for the future of construction in general and Shimizu Vietnam in particular, we do hope for keeping this SOA tradition and venture out to co-operate with many universities in other cities and provinces. Working up to the reputation and nurturing the next generation are Shimizu Corporation’s motto globally and we will always maintain this.
