Introduction of Applied Science Faculty

The Faculty of Applied Science (FAS) – a new division of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, member of the Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City – was established in 2003 in an effort to respond the demand of professionals in interdisciplinary hi-tech engineering fields such as engineering mechanics, biomedical engineering, computational physics, photonics, nanotechnology etc.

It formed by the merger of the Center of Continuous Education, Lab of Laser Technology and Lab of Applied Mechanics. FAS has gathered lecturers and experts on Mathematics, Physics, Engineering Mechanics in order to establish a division responsible for teaching basic sciences to the whole university and developing specialized interdisciplinary engineering training programs.

The Faculty has its first students intake in 2002-2003 in 2 specializations: engineering mechanics and biomedical engineering. Up to now FAS has intensively set up facilities and implemented undergraduate and postgraduate training programs of engineering physics, engineering mechanics, applied mathematics as well as computational science in the near future.

In order to ensure a quality training program FAS has been able to offer a thorough and consistent educational program for learners ranging from undergraduate to postgraduate level in above-mentioned specializations.

On the other hand, FAS has a strong academic research potential from many laboratories, especially the Laser Technology Lab, Lab of Applied Mechanics and Lab of Computational Physics. These facilities provides opportunities for practical training while promoting scientific research and technology transfer. Academic research and international cooperation are among intensive activities of the faculty.

1. Vision

Consistently with the vision of HCMUT, Faculty of Applied Science aims to become:

- A center having high-quality training program in deep integration with the region and the world; reaching international standard environment for teaching and learning.

- A place gathering domestic and international professionals, highly qualified teachers in the field of interdisciplinary applied science.

- A center deploying scientific research and development activities reaching international level in related strong fields of FAS; applying interdisciplinary technology applications into practical needs of the industrialization and modernization of the country, particularly of the southern region.

2. Mission

As a basic unit of HCMUT, FAS is responsible to ensure:

- The training of basic science for engineering curriculums.

- Undergraduate and postgraduate training on Applied Science coming up to the standard of AUN-QA and ABET.

- Scientific research and technology transfer contributing to development of economy, science and technology in the country, reaching to the key technology in the world.

- High quality human resources, fosters talents in the fields of interdisciplinary hi-tech engineering fields, especially in engineering mechanics and engineering physics.
