HCMC University of Technology and Education

HCMUTE is currently listed as one of the top 10 universities in Vietnam and also a member in the top group of Southeast Asia universities (basing on standard evaluation index). HCMUTE strives for the award 'Heroic Organization of Labor' and the 1st Class Independence Medal by the 55th Anniversary of HCMUTE’s establishment. To do that, HCMUTE will adopt a "hybrid model" to simultaneously promote, blend and harmonize the strength of our three educational trends: engineering, technology and pedagogy. By this way, HCMUTE will not only firmly stand at its current leading position in the area of professional higher education and technical applications, but also move forward to a higher level in doing research focusing on several key majors in the near future.
