    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;E-tourism and hospitality represents the development of tourism and hospitality to integrate ICT tools and has significantly changed the industry over the last decade. In order to meet the new needs, knowledge &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;service supplier&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;s (i.e. the university) must meet the requirements and social developments of the tourism industry. &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;The quality of e-tourism and hospitality curriculum depend&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;s &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;largely on the &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;education&lt;/em&gt; &lt;em&gt;quality &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;and its &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;subsequent &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;implementation. The &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;research reveals that &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;higher education is not currently meeting the needs of the industry, especially in the Greater Mekong Sub-region countries. This article &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;focuses on two major problems, which represent a disparity between the knowledge needs of the tourism and hospitality industry and the knowledge provided by curricula in higher education. The authors leverage a knowledge engineering perspective so as to bridge the gap between knowledge demand and supply as related to e-tourism and hospitality curriculum design&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
