Dear colleagues, partners and students,

Welcome to the University of Science, one of the six esteemed members of the Vietnam National University System in Ho Chi Minh City. Our University history started in 1942 with the establishment of the Indochina College of Science which then became the Faculty University of Science in Saigon in 1956. By collaboration with the Faculty of Letters, our Institution was renamed as University Hochiminh City in 1977.

The General City University was split into the University of Natural Sciences and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in 1996, then becoming the two mutual members of the Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City.

The University of Science inherited and constantly aimed to become an excellent institution for education and scientific research in the field of basic sciences and applied technologies in Vietnam. We have more than fifteen thousand undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing 52 undergraduate programs and 32 graduate programs. We provide an excellent education research environment to instil a passion for science as well as social responsibility in each and every student.

We warmly welcome you to join and collaborate with our education and scientific research.  It’s your stimulating contributions that help our institution to achieve the continuous goals as a premier, research-intensive public university and international reputation. I do highly appreciate your interest in the University of Science.
