OVERVIEW

Mechanical Engineering program at BKU (HCMUT) provides students with solid knowledge of mechanical, electrical, computer system, software engineering, and advanced knowledge about the practice of modern industrial environment.

CAREER OPPORTUNITY

After graduating the Mechanical Engineering from Bach Khoa University (formerly Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology), engineers can work for international companies in all related field of combustion, noise, pollution and vibration control, production planning, water supply, product design, aeronautics, bioengineering, mechanics and materials, mechatronics, micro- and nano-engineering, sustainability, thermal sciences, etc.

There are many mechanical engineers working for big international companies in many fields such as Microsoft, GE, Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Honda, Ford Motor Company,…  

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

Students study at BKU (HCMUT) for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering awarded by BKU (HCMUT).

Option 2:

After completing 02 years at BKU (HCMUT), students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to the following partner universities in Australia and USA the later 02 years to complete their study for Bachelor degree:

The official bachelor degree is awarded by the partner university.

The advantage of this option is that the student can save about 50% total fee (tuition fee and living expense) compared to studying for full 4 years in Australia to get a Bachelor Degree.
