Established in 1997, TDTU has steadily developed into one of the largest and fastest growing universities in Vietnam.

Equipped with modern facilities and state-of-the-art instruments,  it allows for the consolidation of many academic disciplines. The old campus in Binh Thanh District, Ho Chi Minh City, however, is still maintained and is now dedicated to the university’s vocational mission when it was first founded.


Apart from the two main campuses in Ho Chi Minh City, TDTU also has two regional campuses. One is in Nha Trang, one of the most beautiful and busiest marine cultural and tourism hubs in Vietnam. The other is in Ca Mau City, the purpose of which is to meet the educational and training needs of students from the Mekong Delta’s provinces.


Last but not least, TDTU is currently having another 52-hectares-campus constructed in the highland town of Bao Loc in Lam Dong Province.


Regarding academic organization, TDTU has 30 undergraduate and graduate programs with many inter disciplinary research opportunities. Our academic faculties offer rigorous curricula in addition to professional training and continuing education for working professionals.
