Vietnam National University (VNU)
As the first modern university established and one of the two national universities in Vietnam, Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU) has undergone various stages of development: the University of Indochina was established on 16 May 1906; Vietnam National University (November 1945); the University of Hanoi (June 1956). In December 1993, VNU was reorganized on the basis of amalgamating the University of Hanoi and some other leading universities in Hanoi.
VNU is the largest comprehensive higher education and research center in Vietnam. VNU is entrusted with the task of producing highly qualified human resources and talents for the industrialization and modernization of the country. VNU holds a special position in Vietnam’s higher education system, operating according to a special regulation promulgated by the Prime Minister.
Hanoi University of Science and Technology
Established in 1956, Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) is Vietnam’s first multidisciplinary technical university. It is the industrial engineer training center of the country during building and development processes, and the cradle of high-quality human resources for the country’s modernization and industrialization.
In its early days, the whole University concentrated its efforts on settling facilities for classrooms and laboratories by renovating and buying new equipment; and at the same time, on the development of managerial and teaching staff to prepare basic conditions for the opening of the First Cohort.
During those challenging days, HUST received strong support from international friends, especially the Government, people, and universities of the former Soviet Union through staff development programs, lesson planning, and pedagogical orientation.
In 1960, HUST inaugurated the construction of its new campus based on Soviet specialists’ design. The chosen location was the Indochina boarding school (previously the dormitory area of students from the three Indochinese countries under Vietnam’s French colonization, built in 1938), bordered by Bach Mai Street (to the east), Dai Co Viet Street (to the north), the Old South, or present-day Giai Phong (to the west), and Dai La (to the south). Nowadays, HUST is still one of the universities having the largest areas nationwide.
