4. Description of the training program

Starting enrollment in 1996, up to now, Hanoi University of Science and Technology has been training 25 engineering courses in Bioengineering. Training orientation focuses on quality over quantity. In the early years, each training course of the program consisted of 50-60 students, now, each training course is from 100-120 students. Through 20 courses, the School of Biotechnology & Food Technology has trained thousands of engineers specializing in Bioengineering, providing the needs of businesses, research institutes and society.
Learning environment with many modern and synchronous devices


Bioengineering is a branch of Biotechnology in which biological and technological knowledge are combined to exploit the capabilities of natural or novel biological agents for product development.

Bioengineering is a branch in Biotechnology, in which biological and technological knowledge is combined to exploit the capabilities of natural biological agents or to create new ones for industrial production. This combination allows the application of the principles of living systems to the creation of biotechnology products on an industrial scale.

Biotechnology Engineers use multiple fields of knowledge and skills to connect the two areas of Life Science and Technology to fulfill the mission “Bringing engineering to life” through converting the capacities of biological materials into the products needed for human life. Successful design and mastery of production technology are based on exploiting the metabolic capacity of biological agents, enabling the transformation of these biological agents’ product-making capabilities into products. This is the key to building a successful biotechnology industry. Areas of Biotechnology include selection or creation of biological agents from organisms, technological design and operation of the fermentation system corresponding to the selected biological agents, establishment of technology to convert biological materials into products and recover these products with a certain degree of purity; structured into biological products to serve food industry, pharmaceutical industry, agriculture, environmental protection and others.Bioengineering graduates have the ability to master the specific technologies of biotechnology, including from working with biological agents (at the molecular or cellular level created by recombinant DNA technology), to designing and managing technology and production systems.

Some work that graduates of the Bioengineering undergraduate program includes:

  • Participating in teaching, research, and product development in the fields of biotechnology, food and environment at universities and research institutes;
  • Designing technology for manufacturing biotechnology products, organizing, managing, and operating the production and trading of biological products, environmental technology, agriculture, and healthcare;
  • Operating and maintening of biotechnology equipment and related fields
  • Designing consultancy, supervision at technological processes, biotechnology equipment;
  • Working in enterprises, companies, production plants, research units, foreign cooperation, domestic and foreign units, and many other units.
5. Scholarship opportunities for students
  • Scholarships according to regulations of Hanoi University of Science and Technology;
  • Study encouragement scholarships for students who overcome difficulties and excellent students of companies and alumni/lecturers of the institute;
  • Scholarships to exchange/training undergraduate and graduate students with partner schools and businesses;
  • Scholarships and awards for scientific research students;
  • Postgraduate training scholarships (Master, Ph.D.).
6. Scientific research and extracurricular activities
  • Opportunity to participate in scientific research right from the 3rd year;
  • Opportunity to participate in organizing student activities from Student Unions of School of Biotechnology & Food Technology;
  • Opportunity to join School Student Clubs such as FOBIC Club, English Club;
  • Opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities organized by the School Union, Departments/Departments, and clubs in the school;
