The Faculty of Information Technology was established in the early days of HCMC Open University in September 1990. For over 30 years of establishment and development, the faculty has been staffed with experienced and dedicated lecturers, along with visiting lecturers from other universities and institutes in HCMC. The Faculty has provided approximately 5500 Bachelors of Computer Science for the society. The Faculty members graduated from the developed countries, including USA, France, Korea, Norway.
The Faculty has trained human resources for the Information Technology field and for the industrialization and modernization of the country with good work ethic, good theoretical knowledge, practical soft-skills, and capabilities to catch new issues of the developing industry. The graduate students from the Faculty can find a job of training professional fields at the rate of 95%, and nearly 50% of our students are employed during their internships. Moreover, we are proud that students graduated from our Faculty are not only good developers or lecturers of Colleges and Universities but also hold important roles in companies and Institutes. In addition, with professional training, the Faculty always takes care of scientific research in the lecturer staff and the students as well. Our Faculty is deeply honored to receive the certificates of excellence in scientific research from the president of our University in 3 consecutive years (2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014). These rewards are the results of dedicated support from our teachers to help students accomplish their research splendidly. Since 2003, every year, our students often get high positions in national competitions such as National Olympic of Informatics, Eureka – Ho Chi Minh city awards for best student research, Vietnamese Youth Talented Scientists, Application Development Competition, etc.
Faculty members explore several topics in the exciting spectrum of Computer Science including Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision and Language. The students can join in research groups to conduct a research project and produce a report/paper presenting their results, under the supervision of the faculty member. Since 2018, many scientific papers have been published by our undergraduate students in reputable publishers such as IEEE, Springer, Elsevier, Willey, ACM.
The Faculty offers four-year undergraduate degree programs in:
- Computer Science
- Management Information System
- Information Technology
