In recent years, international academic cooperation has became a growing trend among students and institutions around the world. This is especially true in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to a greater focus on online learning and collaboration. Students who participate in international academic cooperation have the opportunity to receive advanced education from many different countries around the world.
On April 21, 2023, a representative of Yuan Ze University (Taiwan) had the opportunity to visit and collaborate with Nam Can Tho University to discuss issues of educational innovation and academic partnership between the two schools.

The meeting was a productive dialogue on how the two schools could work together and enhance bilingual education in an international setting. Bilingual education is a valuable and attractive choice for students who aim to study and work in a diverse and dynamic world. It enables them to gain exposure to different cultures, perspectives, and experiences, and to improve their skills and competencies. Both universities also examined the impact of innovative technologies such as automated agriculture, which employs automation and smart devices to increase agricultural efficiency and sustainability; solar energy, which converts sunlight into renewable energy for various purposes; and AI, which uses artificial intelligence and big data to enhance the performance and productivity of the Industry 4.0. Prof. Alex Wei also offered Can Tho University students to join him in Taiwan for further study, research and exposure to a multicultural education environment, where they can gain valuable insights, experiences and knowledge from different backgrounds, cultures and languages
