Faculty of Information Technology

NTU established the Faculty of Information Technology in 2003 to train human resources in IT for the South Central and Highlands regions. The Faculty now has 42 members, six of which have doctorates and, 33 have masters degrees. The majority of these staff were trained in advanced universities in France, Australia, South Korea, Belgium, and Japan. The Faculty controls a specialized laboratory, one virtual stock classroom, an online conference room, and IT rooms for basic and applied computing subjects with over 300 networked computers. The Faculty has trained approximately 2,000 bachelors in IT. The number of graduates working in the field of IT in Khanh Hoa province’s organizations and enterprises has gradually increased. 

The Faculty annually holds the “Informatics Olympiad” for NTU students, to promote learning and conducting research and to find and foster IT talents to participate in Informatics exams at provincial and national levels. The NTU Informatics Team regularly competes in the “Informatics Olympiad” for Vietnamese students and has achieved four 2nd prizes, ten 3rd prizes, and 12 consolation prizes. Moreover, the team obtained a Bronze Cup in 2011 and a Silver Cup in 2012 in the “International Student Programming Exam ACM/ICPC”.

Today, the Faculty of Information Technology consists of four departments: The Department of Software Engineering, the Department of Information Systems, the Department of Computer Networks and Communications, and the Department of Mathematics.

The Faculty of Information Technology focuses its efforts on becoming one of the most prestigious faculties of information technology training in the nation. Its mission is to contribute to the development of human resources in the field of information technology in Vietnam.


The Faculty of Information Technology is responsible for two 4-year bachelor programs including Information Technology and Information System Management. With the Information Technology program, after completing foundational prerequisite courses, students can take elective specialized subjects in information systems, software engineering, or computer networks and communications in their last year.

Undergraduate programs:

  • Bachelor in  Information Technology
  • Bachelor in Information Technology – POHE program (Profession-Oriented Higher Education)
  • Bachelor in  Information System Management

Graduate programs:

  • Master in Information Technology: In association with Hanoi Polytechnic University, the Faculty of Information Technology offers a 2-year Master’s program in information technology. All the main courses are taught by professors from Hanoi Polytechnic University. However, since 2017, under the permission of the Ministry of Education and Training, the Faculty was allowed to train master program in Information Technology.

Together with instruction and training, scientific research and technology transfer are also primary functions of the Faculty of Information Technology. The faculty has taken significant steps toward conducting applied information technology projects.

The faculty takes necessary steps to ensure that all instructors and students have the support and equipment necessary to conduct creative research on practical and scientific research projects.
