Dear Colleagues, Students and Fellow Friends,
It has been truly my privilege to serve as the President of Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology And Education (HCMUTE) since May 2013. I would like to welcome you to HCMUTE and join me in becoming a part of HCMUTE community. Comprehensive, sustainable development and International integration is the target for my tenure 2013-2018.
Located in the heart of the industrial area, the university has been a learning, research center and educational opportunity in Ho Chi Minh City for more than half a century. Established in 1962 as a College Board of Technical Education with 5 engineering disciplines, HCMUTE has remarkably transformed itself to a multi-disciplinary university. Currently, the university offers 21 undergraduate, 8 master and 3 PhD programs in engineering and technology, business, graphic art, foreign languages and these numbers are expected to increase significantly in the coming time. Although our missions have been broadened considerably beyond that originally envisioned, HCMUTE always strives to provide the high quality human workforce for the region and the whole country.
With two beautiful campuses, well-equipped laboratories and adequate facilities, and over 800 dedicated administrative and teaching staff, we are committed to providing the best possible conditions for over 26,000 students to develop their knowledge and skills. With redesigned curricula using CDIO (Conceive - Design - Implement - Operate) approach, HCMUTE students enjoy active learning, teaching and research environment with emphasis on students' English competency and soft skills which are essential for graduates to work in a global industry. Beside the active classrooms, students are provided with numerous extra curricula activities to enhance their soft skills and enrich their student lives. These above mentioned favorite conditions have made HCMUTE become the famous brand name in the labor market with high quality and best employment of graduates.
The past 10 years have witnessed the strong development of research capacity of the University. HCMUTE has been known not only for its distinct graduates who are good at both knowledge and skills but also for its success in applied research. With good Incentives, I hope HCMUTE will be able to attract more talented researchers.
The university has built a very strong network with the industry, foreign universities and organizations. Collaboration and support from these partners have helped the university achieve what it has today. As I envision global integration is a pathway to success, I would like to call for collaboration between HCMUTE and your organizations.
