Computer Engineering is the branch of engineering that integrates electronic engineering with computer sciences. Computer engineers design and develop computer systems and other technological devices. Students of this course will learn about theoretical programming and gain practical experience in developing applications for computing platforms and hardware.


Graduates of this major will have a wide range of career opportunities; they have the option of moving into hardware or software positions or blending the two. Typical industries hiring computer engineers include financial services, computer manufacturers, chemical companies, defense contractors, consulting, transportation, manufacturing, and consumer goods. Computer engineers are equally successful in large multinational firms and small startups.
Graduates of Computer Engineering can take a lot of work in the fields of Computer and Information Technology such as:
  • Designing and constructing software, hardware for automatic control equipment like the control device in automobile and electronic equipment, barcode reading equipment, industrial robots, industrial chains, etc.
  • Managing and building security solutions for computer systems and computer networks.
  • Working for software outsourcing companies in the USA, Japan, and Europe markets.
  • Consulting, appraising and developing information technology projects and solutions.

Students have 2 options:
Option 1:
Students study at HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT) for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering awarded by HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT).

Option 2:
After completing 02 years at HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT), students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to the following partner universities in Australia and USA the later 02 years to complete their study for Bachelor degree:
  • The University of Queensland, Australia
  • The University of Adelaide, Australia
  • The Catholic University of America, USA
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 to get a Bachelor Degree.
