• Bachelor of Engineering (Food Technology)
  • Duration: 4 years
  • No. of credits: 124 credits
  • Medium of instruction: English
  • Tuition fee: approx. 80-100 million VND*
    (*for studying 4 years in Vietnam)


Students interested in the production, processing, packaging, safety and/or transportation of the world’s food supply will be taught to combine engineering (fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer, etc.), math, and science (biology, chemistry, and physics) with advanced courses in food chemistry, microbiology, food processing operations, and engineering design.


Food engineers use their skills to design sustainable and environmentally responsible food processes for manufacturing safe, tasty, healthy, convenient food products as consumer awareness and demand for a safe and abundant supply of food have increased

Graduates have a wide range of jobs to pursue their careers. However, the jobs are usually grouped in the following 4 categories:

  • Product development: working with the food products, packaging, etc.
  • Engineering: developing the processes and machinery to make and store the food.
  • Technical management: overseeing the way the food is made, packaged and stored.
  • Hygiene and food safety.


Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

Students study at HCMUT for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Engineering (Food Technology) awarded by HCMUT

Option 2:

After completing 02 years at HCMUT, students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to our partner universities for the later 02 years to complete their study for the bachelor’s degree awarded by the partner universities.

HCMUT is currently working to associate the program with our partner university in New Zealand. The information will be updated here soon.
