PROGRAM OVERVIEW

BACHELOR IN ENERGY

1.PROGRAM MISSION

The USTH’s Energy program is created to meet the manpower needs of the growing energy sector in Vietnam and around the world. 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. Graduates will have a fundamental understanding of energy sector and a strong ability of promoting, designing and implementing sustainable energy solutions. They will be well prepared for careers in various fields, not only within traditional areas of energy, but within the emerging fields of renewable energy as well.

2.PROGRAM CURRICULUM

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.

4.CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 
Higher studies and research careers
This Bachelor’s degree will entitle you to enrol the “Master in Energy” at USTH or any of the master’s degree courses offered in the Energy fields. The master’s program will provide students with in-depth knowledge of the specialized subject. In addition, we offer many opportunities for internships or higher studies in more than 40 universities and research institutions in France. Graduates will have a great chance to become advisors, teachers or researchers at one of our partners’ establishments.

Business and industrial careers
By stating engineering as a principle programmatic focus, the career potential for graduates of USTH’s Energy program is promising. They will be suitable for jobs of technicians, consultants, analysts, etc. 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.)
