Ho Chi Minh city University of Technology (Bach Khoa University) is proud to be the first educational institution in Vietnam achieving ABET certification (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, USA) in two majors: Computer Engineering and Computer Science.

Abet d428b

Computer Engineering focuses on the design, analysis, and application of computers and on their applications as components of systems. Our program provides a strong and broad technical foundation, professional engineering skills, leadership ability, and a well-rounded undergraduate experience. We aim to provide our students with ability to design & problem-solving, apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering, to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data, etc.

Graduates of this major will have a wide range of career opportunities; they have the option of moving into hardware or software positions, or blending the two. Typical industries hiring computer engineers, include financial services, computer manufacturers, chemical companies, defense contractors, consulting, transportation, manufacturing, and consumer goods. Computer engineers are equally successful in large multinational firms and small startups.

Graduates of Computer Engineering can take a lot of work in the fields of Computer and Information Technology such as:

  • Designing and constructing of software, hardware for automatic control equipment like the control device in automobile, electronic equipments, barcode reading equipments, industrial robots, industrial chains.
  • Managing and building security solutions for computer system and computer network.
  • Working for software outsourcing companies in the USA, Japan and Europe markets.
  • Consulting, appraising and developing information technology projects and solutions.

Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

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

Option 2:

After completing 02 years at HCMUT (BKU), students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to our following oversea partner universities in Australia & 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 or USA to get a Bachelor Degree awarded by our partner universities.

  • Study language: English
  • Training duration: 04 years at HCMUT (BKU)
  • Campus: HCMUT (BKU) campus. For more information about HCMUT (BKU) campus, please visit our campus.
