4.CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 

The range of occupational ICT pathway continues to expand as ICT technology penetrates more and more aspects of daily life. Moreover, other science technologies currently requires ICT as the tool for development. Common areas of work for ICT graduates include software engineering and programming for web and mobile platforms; systems analysis and administration; multimedia development and processing.

Employment opportunities for ICT graduates are very strong due to the high demand in the industrial sector. The ICT industry did not succumb to the effects of the recent Global Financial Crisis as compared with many other sectors. Furthermore, many ICT start-up projects in Vietnam have been received strong support and large investments from government or national and international companies. 

Besides the possibility of finding a job after graduation, ICT students have enough competences to pursue higher education in Vietnamese university or go aboard to study in high quality international universities. The specialization on Computer Science in the ICT pathway gives the core based on which students can grow into specialized researchers.
