Introduction

Since the establishment of FET in 1996, FET has consistently offered one undergraduate program – the Bachelor Program in Electronics-Telecommunications Technology (BPETT). The development of the BPETT program is divided into three different phases, in accordance with development strategies of VNU, VNU-UET and FET. The first phase (1994 – 2004) aims to develop a program in the field of ET within VNU. The second phase (2005 – 2007) extends the BPETT program to meet a high-quality standard, especially in Vietnam. This is done in part by supplementing more advanced ET knowledge as well as developing skills such as critical thinking, self-study, self-exploration of knowledge, life-long learning, and adaptability to practice. The third phase (2008 – 2012) upgrades the program to meet the international standard . This upgrading reflects the new mission and vision of VNU-UET in providing high-quality and high-level training; becoming a typical university in the higher-education system of Vietnam; joining the group of regional and international prestigious universities with respect to applied sciences and high technologies. FET made a bold move in 2008 to upgrade its BPETT program to meet international standard, being one of only eleven international programs taking such an upgrade in the entire VNU.

The undergraduate program was assessed by AUN (Asean) and DAAD (Germany)

The Bachelor Program in Electronics and Telecommunications Technology (BPETT) is the one among seven over 108 bachelor training programs in VNU, which has been selected by VNU to strategically invest to bring up its quality to meet the international standard (strategic mission of VNU since 2008). The program has been designed with the main goals to train bachelors in Electronics and Telecommunications Technology, who have strong background in the related sciences, engineering and technologies and are able to contribute to society by the creativity, business and leadership. The detailed goals include of: (a) To develop the knowledge and skills required for a career in field of Electronics and Telecommunications; (b) To understand and capable to apply basic sciences, mathematics, and electronics and communications engineering in practice; (c) To provide an environment that helps students prepare for a variety of career-oriented and have the ability to learn throughout the life; (d) To help students understand the interaction between their training field with the society, business, technology, and environment; and (e) Help students able to contribute to the development of national and global economics.

The program along with innovative faculties through teaching, learning, research, collaboration, publication, leadership, and service activities, has provided the highly qualified products for labor markets.
