Established in 1956, Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) is Vietnam’s first multidisciplinary technical university. It is the industrial engineer training center of the country during building and development processes, and the cradle of high quality human resources for the country’s modernization and industrialization.

In the early days, the whole University concentrated its efforts on settling facilities for amphitheaters and laboratories by renovating and buying new equipment; and at the same time, on the development of managerial and teaching staff to prepare basic conditions for the opening of the First Cohort.
In those challenging days, HUST received strong support from international friends, especially the Government, people and universities of former Soviet Union through staff development programs, lesson planning and pedagogical orientation.
