        • Allacademic staff are Professors, Associate/AssistantProfessors, and lecturerswhohavegreatreputation and teachingexperience. Almostalllecturersgotthe PhD degreeorpursuing PhD degree.
        • Forthecourses and advancedtopicsthat are highlypractical, theFacultyplansto invite theexpertsfrom industrial companies, researchinstitutes, non-govermentalorganization, etc. togivelectures and share theexperiencetothestudents.
  • Curriculum: thecurriculumisdevelopedbytheFacultyscientific and training committee (FSTC) and thenapprovedbythePresident of TDTU. Thecurriculum can only be modifiedifthereis a proposalfrom FSTC and againapprovedbythePresident of TDTU.
  • TheprogrammeisdevelopedbasedonthereferencetotheBachelorprogramme in Civil EngineeringofferedbyNangYangUniversity (Singapore) withsomemodificationto compatible withcurrentcondition of Vietnam highereducation as well as the labor marketdemand in Vietnam.
  • Thepercentage of specializationcoursesthat are taught in English is 35/35 = 100%.
  • Severalcourses in theprogramme can be taughtbytheforeignprofessorswho are collaboratingwiththeFacultyiftheconditionallows.
  • Thenumber of creditsthat are taught in the industrial companies: 7 credits (4 course).
  • Theprogrammeisregularlyreviewed and evaluatedaccordingtothe “Proceduretoevaluatethecurriculaofferedby TDTU” ,basedonthefeedbacksfromthestudents, lecturers, alumni, and employers, experts in thefield, and theaccreditationorganizations in theworld.
  1. Job opportunities

Students who graduate with the Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering can find their jobs in the following posittions:

  • Governmental organizations: including research centers; Institutes, Ministry of construction or Department of construction of local authorities.
  • Private companies and corporations, foreign companies: there are a lot of private companies working on Civil engineering field. Their main purposes include Consulting, Site construction manager, Designing, and Maintaining infrastructures.
