All of above-mentioned programs have a training duration of 4.5 years. During such a period, students are instructed by new teaching methods, greatly benefit from high proportion of practical works on real equipment in the labs or in the fields, and enjoy interesting excursions to industry.

Hydraulic Structure Engineering students will focus their study in theory, design & implementation of hydraulic works like bridges, drains, dams, pumping stations, stone embankments to serve the agriculture & to develop the infrastructure for rural areas in meeting requirements in irrigation & drainage, flood prevention, saline intrusion prevention, water logging prevention and erosion prevention for river and canal banks; Planning and management of rural hydraulic works and waterway transportation systems in rural regions.

Building Engineering students are characterized by their knowledge of theory, design, implementation and management of multistory buildings, civil and industrial construction works, bridges/roads projects, planning of transportation networks and urban planning
Bridge and Road Engineering students are majored in planning, design, implementation and management of construction works on roads, bridges, highways, intersections, … They are trained toward high practical skills so that graduate students are capable of designing and construction works of roads and bridges. Road construction engineers can work in the design consulting firm, the company's building traffic as well as private, in the Office of Public Communications or Urban Management Districts, …

Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Engineering students are directed towards theoretical and practical knowledge of analysis, design, manufacture, operation, maintenance and repair of relevant machine elements, mechanism, machinery and production lines; renovation of equipment to improve its performance; investigation and utilization of automated equipment and production chains; technical management at working institutions. Graduated students can integrate understanding of the core mechanical and materials engineering sciences with creativity in a design process fully integrated with knowledge of manufacturing technologies and operations.

Food Processing Engineering students are focused on theories, design and implementation of mechanical equipment on food processing. Food processing engineers are capable of development and operation of manufacturing, packaging and distributing systems for drug/food products; designing and installation of food production processes; marketing and technical support for manufacturing plants.

Transportation Engineering students are trained to be able to design, manufacture and operation of motorcycles, automobiles, buses and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems. Graduated students can integrate their knowledge in term of the core mechanical and materials engineering sciences as well as manufacturing technologies for designing and operation of vehicle systems.

Industrial Management students gain their knowledge of scheduling, forecasting, quality control and total quality management; Facility layout & location, and product design; Project management, maintenance management and inventory management. Graduated students can improve the effectiveness of a system in both manufacturing and service industries.

Electrical Engineering students get insights into applications of electromagnetic phenomena in production, transformation, distribution, effective and safe utilization of electricity; Design and exploitation of electrical systems and networks; Management and operation procedures for electrical equipment of automated production chains; Development of certain automated steps in modern production chains; Technical management at working institutions dealing with power electricity, electrical systems and networks.

Chemical Engineering students are offered extensive knowledge of organic and inorganic chemistry in combination with process engineering, and material science and technology, emphasizing both theory and practical applications. Generally, Department of Chemical Engineering provides four majors in the fields of both science and engineering comprising (i) organic chemistry and life science; (ii) inorganic chemistry and ceramic engineering; (iii) polymer and composite materials; and (iv) process control engineering.

Computer Engineering students obtain a strong mathematical foundation and hands-on experience in integrated circuit design. The program includes major engineering design experiences; integration of hardware/software issues, especially in the context of embedded systems; use of contemporary engineering design and modeling tools throughout the curriculum.  Graduate students can work in companies, institutes, universities or government agencies which manage projects, design, develop, test and exploit integrated circuits and embedded system applications, and research new technical and technological solutions.

Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering students possess a wide range of knowledge from foundation mathematics and physics to deeply technical experience in the electronics and telecommunications field. During 4.5-year period, the program provides the solid understanding of analyzing, designing and operating the electronic systems, particularly in terms of telecommunication systems. Graduate students have the great opportunities in the engineering job markets such as information and communication technology companies, telecommunication service providers, technological institutes, universities or pursuit of higher degree.

Mechatronics Engineering students are prepared for their future jobs with modern technology which is effectively integrated mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, information technology and control theory in making intelligent products and systems. They get insights into design, manufacture, operation, and maintenance of products and systems controlled by computers.

Control Engineering and Automation Students are equipped with the basic and professional knowledge and skills in electronics, programming, classical and modern control techniques, to be able conduct research and apply control and automation engineering in production and real life.

Material Engineering students are equipped with a broad knowledge base, in-depth knowledge of computing, the ability to self-study, organize and design, manufacture, operate, repair and maintain material engineering equipment in related factories. Students can apply background knowledge in areas such as metal - alloys, silicate - ceramic, and polymer – composite and advanced materials such as semiconductor materials, superconducting materials, biomedical materials, nanomaterials.

Each of the undergraduate degree programs has core requirements that are common to all programs. These common requirements include math (calculus, differential equations and linear algebra), science (physics and chemistry). In addition, each program has own requirements and general electives. Many of the courses required for one program may be used to meet the requirements of another. This opportunity to obtain additional undergraduate engineering degrees must be discussed with the pertinent program advisor.
