Master program for expats to upgrade engineering expertise


Expats working in Ho Chi Minh City can upgrade their knowledge with international standard study programs without leaving their current employment.

Vietnam has become a popular destination for higher education with a wide range of study disciplines. In a recent database of the UNESCO Institute of Statistics, Vietnam has attracted more than 8,000 international learners from around the world. More and more universities develop study programs delivered in English, which is not only suitable for English-speaking learners but also helps improve domestic training quality and study environment.

Internationalization in Vietnamese higher education has been widely sought-after by top universities. Among different efforts, executing study programs in English is the most popular. However, when it comes to engineering disciplines, there are not many options.

As opportunities for expats to master their engineering expertise, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT) of Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM) launched their international master programs (BK-IMP) in the early of 2019 with three cutting-edge engineering fields – construction management, telecommunications engineering, petroleum engineering – and rolled out two more study areas in 2020 – computer science, major in cyber security, and business administration oriented to innovation and entrepreneurship.

In 2021, HCMUT expanded another major for computer science: data science, which is one of the “hot searches” in both work and study areas.

BK-IMP also aims at providing professionally managerial background for engineers who are seeking intensive professional and practical knowledge in their disciplines, together with essential skill sets to become prospective managers.

In 2019, HCMUT started to implement a project called Collaborative Education Program for the BK-IMP Master in construction management, sponsored by the JICA for AUN/SEED-Net. The project also has the participation from Yokohama National University (YNU, Japan), Yangon Technological University (YTU, Myanmar), JFE Steel Corporation (Japan).

During this project, the consortium attracts ASEAN students to join, study and cooperatively research demanding topics. Furthermore, the consortium is developing a double degree between the HCMUT and YNU, as well as expanding the network of partner universities to enhance learner practices and knowledge during their BK-IMP studies.
