Introduction

LHU has the aim of training highly qualified human resources for companies and factories to meet society’s labor market. To perform this, the University always considers scientific research as its key mission for these reasons.

- Research activity is an essential part in order to help students to approach and apply their knowledge into solving scientific problems set up by life and career. Then their knowledge is widened and improved.
