Historically, on January 3, 1996, the Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications Technology (FETT) was established from a Radio-Physics part of the Faculty of Physics at the University of Science and became a part of the Faculty of Technology, the predecessor of the UET, founded as a faculty under the VNU by merging FETT and the Faculty of Information Technology (FIT) in 1999. In 2004, FETT was then re-established as the Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications (FET) inside the UET and January 3 has become the FET’s Day. FET has in total 35 members of teaching and supporting staff, with 16 having a Ph.D. degree and five with associate professor title. Most of our teaching staff graduated from major overseas universities and research institutes in Australia, Austria, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Korea, the United States and others. FET teaching and research activities now are structured in four departments, one research laboratory, and five practical laboratories.
For the last 15 years, FET has been successful with its mission of educating highly-qualified engineers and scientists, fostering talents, and conducting research and development of the state-of-the-art technologies in electronics and communications fields.
The faculty offers undergraduate and post-graduate programs in electronics and communications engineering, including specializations in computer engineering, automation, communications, networking, multimedia signal and data processing, micro-electronics, and bio-medical electronics. Our programs are designed to provide students with competitive knowledge and skills needed for a successful career in the globalization environment of business. The yearly enrolment is made up with 60 undergraduate, 100 full-time and part-time master and 15 Ph.D. students of the highest caliber. Our first-year undergraduate students are usually selected from top scorers of the annual nation-wide university entrance examination.
FET staff involves actively in research and technology transfer activities which are diversely funded from VNU, government ministries and agencies, industries, and international collaboration research programs. Under the auspice of the Radio Electronics Association of Vietnam (REV), FET largely contributes to the overall research development in the fields of electronics and communications in Vietnam, by heavily participating in the organization and development of the annual series of REV/IEEE International Conferences on Advanced Technologies for Communications (ATC) and in the publication of the REV Journal on Electronics and Communications (JEC).
As a major faculty of VNU-UET, FET is one of the driving forces behind VNU-UET’s efforts to become an institution of excellence in higher education, a center for technology innovation, and a national and regional leader in engineering education and research.
