Engineer in Engineering Mechanics

I. OBJECTIVES

1.1. Knowledge

Undergraduate program equips students with basic knowledge in Social Science and Humanities, Foreign Languages, Mathematics, Physics, Informatics, and with special knowledge in Electronics, Material Science and Engineering Mechanics systematically.

1.2. Skill

This program provides students calculating skills, analyzing, designing, maintaining, and co-ordinate mode applying theoretical methods and modern technologies to real actions. The program helps students basics to acquire knowledge and to develop it in actions of research on new technology.

1.3. Ability

This program also enables the students to obtain logical and systematic thought in Engineering Mechanics, to develop students' abilities to think clearly, assess problems critically, work creatively, create management ability, and communicate effectively when working independently or as members of a team. Graduates from this program will be the part of the high quality human sources.

1.4. Attitudes

Graduate students are expected to be good Vietnamese citizens, devoting for the National construction and defence. They will have passion in doing research for increasing of  the knowledge  and studying for better political points of view.
The graduates of the program will be awarded Engineering Degrees in Engineering Mechanics.
Outstanding students will have opportunities to attain Master and Doctor Degrees.
Engineering Mechanics engineers will be worked as engineers, supervisors, managers in head of company, designing inttitutions, technical department, factories,  and other related companies of  enginerring mechanics. They will be well-qualified to teach at universities and other higher education institutions and at high schools, and to contribute significantly to the work of research institutes and to the management and operation of public and private entities.
The followings are detailed objectives of four specialties in the Faculty of Engineering Mechanics and Automation.

a. Industrial and Environmental Fluid Mechanics

Graduate students will be have essential knowledge in Mechanics, Mathematics, Physics, Informatics and some knowledge of Chemistry and Biology. Graduates will have acquired professional skills in physical/math-physical modeling technique, calculation, evaluation, analysis of Industrial Fluid-Gas Mechanics processes (priority in petroleum and energy). The graduates will have also mastered abilities in forecasting and monitoring of environmental pollution as well as some processes of environmental technology and using of new related information technology.
Graduates are normally employed as engineers, supervisors, and operation staff in the area of energy, petroleum discovery, environmental protection, and other related institutes.

b. Marine Engineering Mechanics

Graduates from this specialty are the proficient engineers with basic, advanced, integrated, and practical knowledge of Marine Engineering Mechanics. Graduates will be able to use the modern method of Marine Engineering Mechanics for calculation of technique parameter for marine structures design, structural installation and analysis, marine resources exploitation and related fields. Graduates could be employed in designing companies, civil engineering, universities, or research institutes.

c. Mechatronics

This specialty provides students with necessary knowledge, practical professional skills and capacity to keep up with the technical problems and updated technology in Mechatronics. Students have abilities to function on multi-disciplinary teams for creation and design new modern products in Mechatronics.
Graduates could be employed in design departments, technique units and laboratories in the companies, manufactories or in the universities or research institutes in the fields of Mechanics, Electronics, Machinery, Controls and Automations.

d. Aerospace Engineering

The Aerospace Engineering curriculum provides for students a thorough background in aerodynamic and propulsion, structural mechanics, flight mechanics and orbital mechanics, and control. With this strong mechanics and mathematics based education, the graduates can find employment opportunities not only in traditional aerospace industry but also in other fields as government agencies; universities; automotive and petrochemical industries; oceanography; R&D companies and elsewhere. In the current stage, the program focuses firstly most courses on satellite technology to be suitable for Vietnam Strategy on research and application of aerospace technology to 2020.
