Automation and Control Engineering

Introduction

The Automation and Control Engineering was established in 2007 pursuant to Decision No. 472/QĐ-BGD & DT signed on January 24, 2007 by the MOET. This program is one of the strongest majors that supply the technical human resource for industrial zones in Dong Nai and neighboring areas. This major offers programs in vocational training, college and undergraduate education. Till now, there have been more than 200 students graduated from the program and 95% of them have good jobs in the fields of automation and control. Most of them work in the industrial zone in Dong Nai Province and neighboring areas such as Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong Province, etc. Some students took their master and doctoral degree programs and became lecturers at some other universities in Vietnam. The academic program and curricula are continuously developed with particular emphasis on developing students’ skills to meet the fundamental requirements of the industries. Each graduate from the program is expected to have the ability and passion to work effectively and have good ethics.

Missions 

Our mission is to create the best learning environment for students, apply the professional knowledge to solve specific problems in the field of automated control technology, as well as, carry out research activities in technology transfer to meet the needs of high-quality human resources in Vietnam and ASEAN countries.

Vision

Our vision is to become a national leader in educating of control and automation engineering by emphasizing the research and practice-oriented teaching and training to dedicate high-quality engineering education and to effort to solve the practical problems in the industries. We wishes to become a leading unit in application deployment and technology transfer in Vietnam by 2030.
