In the wake of a commitment by French and Vietnamese government, PFIEV started in 1999 as a joint training program which aims to train high level engineers and managers for key economic areas in Vietnam. PFIEV sets up the intake target of 150 students, based on the scores of national entrance examination. After completing general subjects in the first two years, students have to take a national specialization examination organized at four university members. In addition to students of PFIEV, excellent students of regular full time programs can also compete in the examination to become PFIEV students
The five-year curriculum is adapted to that of French universities of engineering. Aiming at providing high-class engineers with international communicative skills, PFIEV students are given extensive courses in English and French languages. Graduates are conferred the “Diplôme d’Ingénieur” by HCMUT and an Addendum signed by HCMUT and the French partners in the specific major. The degrees granted are recognized as equivalent to European Master. At present, ENST (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Telecommunication-Bretagne) and the Department are under collaboration for telecommunication majors.
