"Old Computers - New Knowledge" at University of Information Technology: Beauty in Everyday Life

Every day, in a small room at the University of Information Technology, VNUHCM, the sound of repairing computers by the students fills the air. Although the room is small, it is packed with components and accessories of old computers. This is where students assemble computers to donate in the program "Old Computers - New Knowledge," which the university has been implementing for many years.

"Old Computers - New Knowledge" (OC-NK) was first launched in 2008 and is one of the exemplary programs of the Green Summer Campaign at the University of Information Technology, VNUHCM (UIT). Old, damaged, or incomplete computers discarded by individuals and businesses are collected by students who sift through them for usable components. With enough components, students assemble functional computers and donate them to remote areas. Through this "old computers - new knowledge" model, UIT students have helped thousands of rural children and students gain access to computer education, while many regions have been "computerized" for storage purposes. In 2014, OC-NK was honored to receive the Ho Hao Hon Award from the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union.

Therefore, studying at UIT means you will be immersed in a series of extracurricular activities, academic playgrounds, scientific research, cultural and artistic clubs, sports and fitness clubs, and countless other enjoyable activities. Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, there are suitable activities that will provide you with new and exciting experiences during your university years.
