Hanoi University of Science and Technology
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Hanoi University of Technology)
Hanoi University of Science and Technology (Abbreviated as HUST; Vietnamese: Đại học Bách khoa Hà Nội, "Polytechnic University of Hanoi", "Hanoi University of Technology (HUT)"), founded 1956, is the first and largest technical university in Vietnam.
After the communists took control of Hanoi in 1954 after the victory at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the Soviet Union decided to help North Vietnam to build up a new technical university as a frame for university education in Vietnam. The construction took about two years from the ground of an old campus of Indochina University during the French colonial period. The building was the largest one at that time in Hanoi.
The university is the fifth oldest universities in Vietnam, after Indochina Medical College (1902), University of Indochina(1904), École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de L'Indochine (1925) and Hanoi University of Education (1951). It is the parent of many spin-off technical universities in Vietnam, including Hanoi University of Civil Engineering, Hanoi University of Mine, Vietnam University of Water Resource, etc. After the unification of Vietnam, many of its professors went to Ho Chi Minh City to rebuild Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology.
Hanoi University of Science and Technology is a multidisciplinary technical university. It always ranks first in technology training universities in Vietnam. Thousands of engineers have graduated from HUST and are now serving in key industrial and scientific areas in Vietnam. Many of them hold important positions in the government.
Facts and Figures
In 2007, the HUST staff consisted of 1950 people. Amongst them, there were 1192 in teaching staff, 394 in teaching-assistant and scientific research staff, 200 professors and associate-professors, 400 Ph.D. and D.S.c. Currently, the number of students is about 40,000 making it the largest technical university in Vietnam. Despite of the large pool of students, the passmark (in the national university entrant exam) of the university is among the highest in Vietnam. HUST is well known in Vietnam for its selective students. For instance, in 2005 national university entrant exam, more than half of perfect-score students came to HUST.
To further promote scientific research and training activities besides technology transfer to develop the university as a research focused university, since May 2010 the university’s name in English had been changed to Hanoi University of Science and Technology (abbreviated HUST). However, the university’s names in Vietnamese and French remain the same as "Đại học Bách khoa Hà Nội" and "Institut Polytechnique de Hanoi" respectively.
HUST has one of the largest and most treed campus in Vietnam, just in the south center of Hanoi, looks out onto the Park of Reunification. HUST's campus area is about 20 tens thousand m² with 200 amphitheatres, teaching rooms, halls and conference chambers. It also owns about 200 laboratories among which 8 national key laboratories and 20 practical workshops. HUST has a large of complex for physical education and sport activities including a standard stadium, an Olympic size swimming pool, tennis courts, and international standard sporting event hall (where the South East Asia Student Sports Festival is organized in 2006).
