Accreditation is not only a mandatory requirement for Vietnamese educational institutions but also a social responsibility of the university. Therefore, on the morning of July 9th, 2018 Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology welcomed the official representatives and assessors of the Center for Education Accreditation - the University of Danang to conduct the external quality assessment at HUTECH.

Furthermore, the set of standards is deemed suitable for the Vietnamese context and the international integration trend. HUTECH is proud to be the first university in the country to be accredited according to this new set of standards.
