General introduction:

The USTH’s Energy program is created to meet the manpower needs of the growing energy sector in Vietnam and around the world. The curriculum provides a solid foundation in the energy field, such as electrical engineering, electronics, thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, etc., as well as in-depth technical knowledge of production and use of energy, especially the transmission, distribution and use of electricity. In addition, students will be equipped with knowledge of new energy and renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic systems, wind power, hydropower, biofuels, fuel cells, energy efficiency and management.

Who should study the program?

This program is ideal for students who have good background in physics and wish to learn more about the potential of new technologies in the field of Energy.

Graduate opportunities

The career potential for graduates of USTH’s Energy program is promising. They will be suitable for jobs in most of the institutions related to the management, production and use of energy, especially electricity. Students will be capable of designing and applying technologies and equipment to control, monitor and manage energy systems.
A few examples of workplaces for graduates:                                                  
- Power plants, electricity transmission and distribution companies (EVN and their affiliated companies)
- Consulting, design and construction firms of electrical systems, renewable energy systems (ARTELIA, VNEEC, GREENVIET, etc.)
- State agencies in the fields of management and use of energy (organizations of General Department of Energy, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry Of Construction, etc.)
- Non-governmental organizations related to the fields of renewable energy, sustainable development (GIZ, GREENID, SNV NETHERLANDS, USAID, etc.)
- Universities, institutes and research centers (Center for Energy Consultants (VECC), Institute of Energy Science-VAST), Institute of Electronics, Computer Science and Automation, etc.)
