The deputy rector of a Hanoi university copied some parts of the doctoral dissertation of another professor with no citations around 20 years ago.
The Ministry of Education and Training on Tuesday announced inspectors’ conclusion on accusations made against Nguyen Canh Luong, Ph.D., Associate Professor, deputy rector of the Hanoi University of Technology, by a lecturer.
Nguyen Ngoc Thanh, a lecturer at the Mechanical Engineering Institute, a subsidiary of the Hanoi University of Technology, said in a written complaint sent to the ministry that Luong defended his Ph.D. thesis in mathematics science in 1996, and nearly 100 percent of the content of the thesis was copied from a dissertation prepared by Dang Van Khai, Ph.D., Associate Professor, of the same university, in 1986.
The ministry said investigations had found Luong had copied some parts, not all, of Khai’s dissertation without giving him the credit.
The ministry has ordered Luong to write a report on his wrongdoing, while it is still considering punishment for him.
