Computer Science educate students in the theory and application of computer technology. 

Graduate with the most fundamental and essential knowledge from logical designing, analyzing to micro-processors and embedded devices.



After graduating the Computer Science from  Bach Khoa University (Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology), engineers can take a lot of work in the fields of Computer and Information Technology as:

  • Software designing and software constructing for banks, financial, administrative and commercial organizations, etc.
  • Application designing and application constructing for mobile devices, E-Commerce applications, games on computer and mobile devices, etc.
  • Managing and building security solutions for computer system and computer network.
  • Working for software outsourcing companies in the USA, Japan and Europe markets.


Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

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

Option 2:

After completing 02 years at BKU (HCMUT), 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 the partner university.
