This research is one of the thesis statements of Environmental Engineering Technology Course 20, by two students - Nguyen Thanh Trang and Dinh Thi Ngoc Anh. After the defense session on 06/06/2018, receiving many comments of the Board, Nguyen Thanh Trang continued to develop her thesis and sent it to the Contest Committee at Ministerial level. This research was aimed to assess the influence of pollutants in pig livestock wastewater after digesters on the surrounding environment and human health as well as suggest the processing technology which is effective and suitable for regional conditions.

Through the process of studying and collecting information, the author paid attention to the water hyacinths (Eichhornia crassipes) because they easily adapt to various environments, the speed of their growth is also very fast ... Based on this, the technology of natural aerobic biological lake for growing water hyacinths combined with MBBR was investigated to solve the pollution problem in the livestock sector, contributing to clean up the environment and increase the breeding efficiency. The research was conducted in 4 months, and the operating time of the models was the most important and difficult phase because the author had to follow the process closely: continuous sampling, analysis, and timely adjustments.

At each level from the thesis statement to the research article at Ministry level, the research had to meet specific requirements and standards. The development phases of the research showed the patience and the progressiveness of the author to improve her own product.

This year, the students of the Faculty of Accounting have had high distinction in the scientific research activities of the School. Last year, 03 research articles winning the prizes were developed from the available research at the Faculty. This year, however, the students Course 21 registered totally new research in January 2018. The research topics suggested by instructors are based on the student's abilities, interests and strengths as well as consistent with the criteria of the competition, which contributes significantly to the success.

The group of three students who participated in the study on the Youth Union and Student Association are all the core members of the Youth Union and Student Association at the Faculty and the School. The research they chose is relevant to their strengths; however, it is also challenging for being done following the scientific research standards. Due to the guidance of M.S. Nguyen Thi Bich Van and their efforts, the group made surveys in 5 universities: Van Lang University, University of Architecture Ho Chi Minh City, University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City, HUTECH University, Hoa Sen University. The data was processed by SPSS statistical analysis software, using the following methods: verifying scale reliability, correlation analysis, regression model estimation, variance analysis ... The meticulousness and the devotion of the students in their research was highly appreciated. Certainly, the success which Dieu Ngan, Doan Trang, and Hong Nhung have got is not only the award but also the knowledge and the systematic understanding about Youth Union – Student Association activities so that they can work better and more effectively.

M.S. Nguyen Thi Bich Van also shared that, since the school year 2018 - 2019, the scientific research movement at the Faculty has been expanded to the students of Banking and Finance, and some students have registered their research so far. Scientific Research has been included as a subject in the curriculum of the two majors in the first semester of the third school year. Students are trained how to do research according to the new trends which focus on quantitative approach (running models, analyzing data ...) instead of qualitative approach. The Faculty of Finance and Accounting encourages students to conduct scientific research: any research inspected at the School can replace the graduation thesis (students do not have to take the graduation examination). This is such a great encouragement to students. Besides, allowing students to carry out research projects is a good way to assess their efforts and capacities.

Faculty of Construction: 02 Encouragement prizes

Research title: “A study on technical solutions and housing construction by 3D materials. Research on how to make 3D panels manually at the construction site to be more active in building small and medium private houses”
  Students: Do Van Tuong, Do Huy Tuan, Huynh Cong Tien
  Instructor: Assoc. Prof. Ph. D. Ngo Quang Tuong

Research title: “A study on design (architecture + structure) of 3D panels and application on some designs of private houses in Ho Chi Minh City”
   Students: Bui Ngoc Toan, Nguyen Phuc Loc, Dinh Hoang Nhat Duy, Nguyen Quang Vinh
   Instructor: Assoc. Prof. Ph. D. Ngo Quang Tuong

The Course-20 students in Civil Engineering are the "new elements" of the contest Student Scientific Research in 2018 (Ministry level). Assoc. Prof. Ph. D. Ngo Quang Tuong suggested the ideas and instructed two groups of the last-year students to conduct the research and inspect the results at the School in 6/2018.

vlu bay giai thuong nghien cuu kh hFor the first time participation, congratulations on the success of instructor Ngo Quang Tuong and two groups of K20X students in Student Scientific Research Award in 2018 at Ministry level

The scientific research of the students in Civil Engineering are highly practical. This type of research can create real products and be put into practice. Therefore, the process of conducting the research is quite expensive in terms of costs of materials, fuels, technical documents, labor safety equipment ... and it is also necessary to make field surveys. The research on "3D materials" by Do Van Tuong, Do Huy Tuan, Huynh Cong Tien took 9 months to complete, with the cooperation of SEASYC CORP. The research results have contributed to the design of covering and bearing materials to replace bricks, reducing environmental pollution. The research is also transferred to SEASYC CORP.

Practical research and practical application - are the top criteria for student scientific research. The achievements of the teacher and the students of the Faculty of Construction is a good sign for the improvements of academic activities of Engineering students. Hopefully in the Student Scientific Research Awards in 2019, Van Lang University will have more registered research from other faculties in many fields, promoting the strengths of specialized fields and developing the research capacity of students.
