Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST)

The Hanoi University of Science and Technology (Vietnamese: Đại Học Bách Khoa Hà Nội) is the first and leading university of natural sciences and technology in Vietnam. It currently has approximately 34,300 students. Due to its international reputation and the large number of applicants, the university's students are among the most talented in the country. With its 26 hectares in the heart of the city, the university has the largest campus of Hanoi's universities.

The cooperation agreement with HUST applies to all of HAW Hamburg, but the focus of the exchange is the engineering degree courses, and specifically the area of automotive and aeronautical engineering. We are working on expanding the exchange to other areas.

HUST is a partner in the HaMoNee – Hamburg/Hanoi Mobile Engineers project, which enables HAW Hamburg students to spend a tuition-free study semester abroad at HUST or one of the three other partner universities in Vietnam. Students selected for an exchange can also apply for a full scholarship.

Course offerings

Since 2016, HUST has enjoyed full autonomy from the state and therefore has corresponding freedom in the implementation of its teaching, research and internationalisation activities. This is reflected in the highly practice-oriented teaching, the application-based research, the close cooperation with national and international partners in industry, and the large selection of degree courses offered in English.

The quality of HUST's teaching and research has been certified by the HRCES agency (listed in the European agency register EQAR) and is also evident in the university rankings, particularly in the following areas: Electrical and Electronic Engineering; Mechanical, Aeronautical Engineering and Manufacturing; Computer Science and Information Systems; and Mathematics.

HUST currently offers 65 Bachelor's degree courses, which are divided into three categories (standard programmes, elitech programmes, and joint international programmes) and cover almost all of the STEM subjects. There are also 25 engineering degree courses, 47 Master's degree courses, and 43 doctoral degree courses. HAW Hamburg students can select courses from the following English-language programmes (to the course list).

  • Integrated Bachelor-Master Program in Mechatronics
