Advanced Engineering

As a part of the strategy for international integration of the Vietnamese university system, the Advanced Program is launched and carried out by applying the modern teaching methodology currently in use by American partner universities to improve the training quality of Vietnamese university. The Advanced Program in Electrical-Electronics Engineering belongs to an ambitious project initiated by the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training in Vietnam aiming at building world- class engineering education at selected universities that include HCMUT. The students in this program are provided with modern scientific and technical knowledge, professional skills, as well as good command of computer techniques and English in their majors. Moreover, the program attaches special importance to helping them to develop analytical, synthesis capabilities and facilitating their integration into the highly competitive and fast changing working environments in the future. The program in Electrical-Electronics Engineering at HCMUT is based on the academic system (curriculum, syllabi and academic regulations) currently applied at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (ECE-UIUC)

The Advanced Program is organized in full-time mode at the Faculty of Electrical- Electronics Engineering –HCMUT. The program has started since 2006 with the annual recruiting number targeted at 50 students. In order to be admitted to the program, students have to pass the national entrance examination and have to achieve the English level of 440 for TOEFL or 4.5 for IELTS.

 The academic program is organized in 4 years equivalent to 142 credits. In the first three years students will study interdisciplinary fundamentals of electrical-electronic engineering and continue studying specialization in Power and Energy System in the final year. In the academic year 2009-2010, the major of electronic-communication engineering with similar structure is going to be added to this program. With the kind permission and support from ECE-UIUC, sources from ECE-UIUC and OCW (open course ware) of MIT will be exploited in terms of reference materials in classes. Graduates will be conferred upon the degree of “Bachelor of Electrical-Electronics Engineering in Advanced Program” by HCMUT.
