Currently, the Faculty of Technology consists of 18 lecturers, of which female lecturers account for more than 60%, including 4 graduate students, 4 doctors, and 2 associate professors.

    Most of the Faculty's scientific research projects and international cooperation programs have the participation of female researchers, especially typical scientific research projects cooperating with many countries such as Netherland, Germany, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines in the fields of wastewater treatment, domestic solid waste management, recycling, waste reuse, climate change. The female lecturers of the Faculty of Technology also make a great contribution to the Faculty's achievements when guiding and accompanying students to participate in student scientific research competitions at all levels and win many high awards.

    Thinking about female engineer and female scientist, many notions still appear apprehensive. However, let’s listen to some sharing from female lecturers of Faculty of Technology to understand them better!

    vlu khoa cong nghe bThe female engineers and scientists of the Faculty of Technology, Van Lang University

    Is Science – Technology field suitable with women?

    @ Thao Nguyen, Doctor graduated in France, currently a lecturer in Faculty of Biotechnology.

    I graduated as an engineer in Biotechnology from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology. In my course in 2003-2008, there were only about 7 boys, the rest more than 30 were women. Currently, my female engineers are also working very successfully in factories and companies. In my opinion, men can outperform women in jobs that need enduring health such as on construction sites. With the rest of the jobs, women have traits that enable them to be successful, such as hard work, meticulousness, and ingenuity. In most fields, individuals who want to be good, want to be successful must practice many aspects, not related to many gender bases.

    Advantages and disadvantages when girls study Science - Technology?

    @ Thao Nguyen

    I would like to answer based on my specific experience. My current job is teaching and research in the field of Biotechnology, specifically synthetic biology. Any man or woman in the teaching can do it, right? The work of experimental research, like solving a problem involves asking a problem, finding methods to solve the problem, and then doing experiments to verify and conclude. This is both intellectual work and "physical" nature because of having to go to the lab. So anything can be done by men and women? However, whoever is more patient, who is more curious, who is more meticulous, who is more diligent can survive in the profession and succeed in knocking on the door.

    @ Trang Tran, Postgraduate at Wagenningen School (Netherlands), Lecturer in Environment

    The advantage of girls when studying Science - Technology is that they tend to be more careful and meticulous, be able to plan in detail and perfection, and they are also easy to control their emotions in research and study. In addition, since you are female, you will dominate when designing or researching in areas where the target user is female.

    Can the girls become good engineers in Biotechnology and Environmental Engineering Technology?

    @ Thao Nguyen

    In Biotechnology, I claim that there are many. Many female engineers develop to managerial positions in related units. There are also many female engineers who become influential scientists in a narrow field of the industry. However, most of them are silent people, so usually people don't have their information in the media.

    @ Hien Ho, VLU’s Alumna of  Course 8th , Doctor of Philosophy - Kochi School of Technology (Japan), Head of Environment - Faculty of Technology.

    Women have certain advantages to pursue Science and Technology. In addition, anyone needs to study hard to have a solid knowledge base, hone hard skills, soft skills and foreign languages, and increase their experience to become a good engineer in Environmental Engineering Technology.

    With your own experience, now, how do you admit the position of the current the female engineer – the female scientist ?

    @ Thao Nguyen

    In fact, the number of female engineers and scientists is still very small compared to men. So it can be seen as a group of people that are both rare and precious, and need to be appreciated and supported. There have been many programmes that prioritize and support women with the desire to balance the gender ratio in the rare female professions.

    @ Tu Nguyen, Doctor of Philosophy, Lecturer in Environmental Engineering Technology.

    In my opinion, at present, there are many female engineers or scientists who not only make significant contributions to scientific research but also are good leaders. They increasingly prove their position in society as well as in the modern scientific world.

    In March, on the occasion of International Women's Day, dearly send greetings and respect to the Van Lang women in general and the talented female engineers of the Faculty of Technology in particular.

    - Benchmark Litigation Asia – Pacific recognized as Lawyer of the year in 2019.

    - Lawyer ranked first in dispute resolution in Vietnam for many years, voted by Chambers Asia Magazine

    - Partner of YKVN - leading law company in Vietnam

    - Member of Advisory Council of Faculty of Law at Van Lang University


    Law and the connection with human’s destiny

    As a typical student, after the university entrance exam, PhD. Lawyer Luu Tien Dung became one of 56 state-sponsored students to study abroad in Russia. Seizing the opportunity, he decided to study Law at Kuban National University, in Russia. He thinks that every profession is noble as long as it contributes to the society, however, training time of the medical profession and the law profession are longer and more carefully than other jobs because they closely connect with human's destiny. A good doctor can help people get rid of dangerous diseases. A good lawyer can change the lives of thousands of people.

    According to Ph.D. Lawyer. Luu Tien Dung, the law has never been an "easy" job. There are many concerns and challenges, but the last thing which keeps lawyers from sticking to their profession for years are the positive values and bring happiness to everyone: “We do not have a car, we buy a car or we do not have a house, we buy a house. It is fun for fulfilling an individual's wishes. But a good lawyer can use his wisdom, experience and knowledge to help hundreds of clients solve life's difficult problems, troubleshoot their troubles, and find happiness. So that lawyer has already achieved hundreds, thousands of happiness."

    A good barrister is not an always winning lawyer, but a talented strategist

    In 2019, the dispute between Grab and Vinasun consumed the ink of law agencies, speech agencies and society, becoming the case with the most of trials in Asian history when this is economic civil judgment that has up to 12 trials, each session takes place over several days. The impact of the event was so great that it was recognized by Benchmark Litigation Asia - Pacific as the Case of the year 2019. At the same time, convincing way to solve the problem of Ph.D, Lawyer Luu Tien Dung has shown his ability to grasp the legal political system in Vietnam, the role of law, the executive and the judiciary and how to propose a subtle solution between a freedom of business with legal regulations. This is the reason help him was honored as Lawyer of the Year.

    Being the only Vietnamese lawyer voted by Asian Legal Business Magazine (ALB) as one of the 15 best barristers in Asia (2020); he is also one of the first Vietnamese mediators recognized by the Center for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) in London, PhD. Lawyer. Luu Tien Dung said that performing two roles in parallel was not contradictory when the executor always puts honesty and dedication to the work first.

    In the law, honesty is very important. You must protect the interests of customers in the best way, but you cannot put the customers' interests above justice." Each case is an independent problem that needs its own answer. The responsibility of a good lawyer is not to do everything to achieve victory, to improve the personal win rate. Lawyer must to find a way out even when seeming to fall into a dead end and build the best strategy for customers on the basis of knowledge, experience and honesty to maintain the balance of justice.

    vlu luat su aaPh.D. Lawyer. Luu Tien Dung participates in education and training as a member of the Advisory Council of the Faculty of Law at Van Lang University.

    Asia's leading Lawyer and the predestined relationship with VLU

    Ph.D. Lawyer. Luu Tien Dung said that meeting and lasting connection with the Faculty of Law at Van Lang University is a predestined relationship. As a member of the Advisory Council, participate in contributing to build and review the training program of Economic Law, he pointed out the difference in the approach to legal education in VLU, which is the way of seeing and building programs from social needs, linking theoretical with practical. According to the lawyer, bringing practical cases into the curriculum is quite similar to the program he was studying in the US. This is a step to help students eliminate worry when entering the profession, reducing the time to retrain "newbies" for many companies.

    He thinks that Van Lang University's young generation is full of energy. Besides the support and mentoring of teachers, each Law student needs to equip with enthusiasm, prudence, meticulousness and good critical thinking in order not to be negligent in the profession.

    When you become a judge, all you need to do is make a right and wrong decision. But to be a good lawyer, consultant, or mediator, you need to consider many more aspects of the possibilities. Law learners must know how to criticize in their own opinions, recognize the dialectical, multidimensional facts to build the most effective strategy.

    Artificial intelligence is developing and gradually replacing many positions in society but Ph.D. Lawyer. Luu Tien Dung believes that as long as a lawyer knows how to think creatively, no machine can replace.

  • (VLU, 06/5/2021)Undergraduates have always felt confused when studying many challenging and abstract subjects such as general subjects or specialized theories. The lecture hall also sometimes makes us feel uncomfortable and bored in the lessons. Therefore, while we went exposed to Critical Thinking in the 2nd semester in the first year at Van Lang University, we seem to be aroused the interest in learning and promote the creative spirit of students in general and students of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities in particular.

    After learning the subject "Critical Thinking", we have understood that the nature of "criticism" in "critical thinking" is not the debates. It is the ability to gather information, analyze, interpret, and identify or evaluate a problem in order to draw correct conclusions about it. Critical thinking contributes to strengthening beliefs and directing actions to build and protect that trust. Critical thinking requires us to use Independent Thinking and Reflective Thinking.

    Getting acquainted with critical thinking, even though it is only in the elementary steps, we have been provided with methods of approaching problems in study and life in effectively. Through the lessons of the subject "Critical thinking", we gradually form the skills: Understanding the logical connection between points of view; Identify, develop and evaluate arguments; Solve problems systematically, and so on. Importantly, we are trained in how to detect and correct inconsistencies which is common mistakes in reasoning or in learning and research.

    Before learning "Critical Thinking", we only vaguely understood and envisioned the subject's objective that would help us to be able to speak out overwhelmingly in debates. However, when we go into the lessons, we realize that we should not confuse critical thinking with liking to argue or criticize others. Although skills in critical thinking can be used to point out shortcomings, critical thinking also plays an important role in coordinating to have the right, positive and constructive ideas.

    Our "Critical Thinking" class usually takes place every Saturday afternoon from March 6th, 2021. For us, "Critical thinking" does not bring challenges, because lessons are often accompanied by group exercises and practice exercises to immediately apply students’ knowledge. It is remarkable that students are free to discuss and present their opinions on the given topic, and every contribution is acknowledged by the teacher. They are like bricks that to form a solid argument wall, contributing to making the problem clear and satisfactory.

    For us, “Critical Thinking” is a useful and interesting subject. As a result, we practice confidence in communication, be more sensitive in our behavior, persuade the other party with logical and coherent arguments, improve our presentation skills, and think carefully before giving any decision-making and having a multi-dimensional perspective on all issues in life. This is truly an effective and highly applicable tool in academic disciplines, in many fields and social life.

    The subject "Critical thinking" by MSc. Vuong Hoai Lam teaches freshmen of the Faculty of Social Sciences & Humanities. In all majors at Van Lang University, Critical Thinking is also taught synchronously to freshmen and sophomore as a premise for students to approach and deal with information in subjects and applied to works in the future.

  • (VLU, 09/5/2021)- “I choose to study at Van Lang and hope that I can do everything in the best way and turn Van Lang into another hometown of mine,” said ChitAnong Bouasavanh, a student of Course 26, Fashion Design.

    Currently, Van Lang University has 19 international students from Laos and Cambodia. For each international student, deciding to choose and send their dream at Van Lang University is both an opportunity and a challenge.

    Most Lao students know about Van Lang University through the introduction of the Lao Embassy and this division makes them feel very lucky. The students gathered in the Lao Students’ Dormitory and spent their time studying Vietnamese before studying the specialize subject at Van Lang University. Therefore, even though they study in a new environment, they always consider each other like family, keep close relationships as well as support each other in life.

    5On April 13rd, 2021, students from Laos and Cambodia celebrated Bunpimay at Van Lang University.

    ChitAnong Bouasavanh, a student of Fashion Design, is a friendly guy and is called by his friends with the nickname Pep. He told: "Van Lang is not the first place I think of, but I am passionate about Fashion Design and like creativity, so Van Lang has kept me".


    Before studying at VLU, Pep studied another major and also spent time working as a model. He used to propose community projects about designing for natural products in the rural areas of Laos with export opportunities. Pep hopes that Lao students at Van Lang University will be the first generation to learn and instruct junior students in Laos and Cambodia in the next courses.

    Soukhavong Souliphone, a student of Course 25 of the Faculty of Finance and Banking, is a charming MC in the Bunpimay Traditional New Year festival which held at Van Lang University in 2021. She said, “Deciding to study in Vietnam is my goal for a long time and my parents were all supportive. Partly I want to learn Vietnamese and have better job opportunities in the future. Although I have been studying Vietnamese since I was in Laos, when I studied with Vietnamese students at Van Lang University, my communication skills were improved a lot."

    3Soukhavong Souliphone is a MC to share Lao culture with Vietnamese students.

    The early days in Vietnam or the lecture halls of Van Lang University were unfamiliar to Lao students, but this place has similar features to their homeland: “Vietnamese and Lao people have a lot similarities, so we are also more comfortable”.Students shared that Van Lang University liked a miniature Vietnam with "crowded with many people, motorbikes, food stalls and delicious milk tea", and "only studying for one semester, the number of friends also increased rapidly.”

    One of the difficulties that Lao students face in the process of living and studying at VLU is communication and teamwork. Currently, they can communicate Vietnamese basically, but “it is not enough for specialized content in the subject".

    Therefore, they often encounter challenging situations. When presenting essays or projects, they always make mistakes in expressions, misunderstanding topics, or they sometimes cannot absorb knowledge in the class so they can only wait for the end of the lesson to ask the teacher or friends to explain again. However, they are not discouraged, they believe this thing as a motivation to push themselves to quickly adapt and integrate.

    ChitAnong Bouasavanh said, “When we proposed to open a Vietnamese language class for Lao students, Van Lang University was very interested and supported. In addition, the lecturers have many teaching methods that I really like. They don't put a lot of emphasis on attendance, but always they know how to make me go to theirclass.”

    Besides the enthusiastic support from VLU and the lecturers, the students from Laos and Cambodia also support each other. ChitAnong Bouasavanh is a member of the self-managed group. With good ability in language, he always actively studies the specialized information of other students to help his friends explain.

    2Students perform traditional Lao Sutmay and Vietnamese Ao Dai in the Bunpimay traditional New Year at Van Lang University

    In early April, because of the complicated developments of the Covid-19 epidemic, many Lao and Cambodian students could not return to their hometown to celebrate Tet with their families. For this reason, Van Lang University organized a cultural exchange program to celebrate Bunpimay traditional New Year for students from Laos and Cambodia. This is the first time Van Lang University organizes a big holiday for foreign students.

    lao “Living in Vietnam for nearly 3 years, this is the first time I have celebrated Tet with Vietnamese students”, Thoummavong Oulayvanh shared

    Talking about future plans, Thoummavong Oulayvanh, a student of Course 26 in Oriental Studies, shared: “I have many plans for the future, but firstly I want to study well. In the next 1-2 years, I hope to have the opportunity to study in Korea according to the training program of Van Lang University". There are some other people who want to complete the training program well to continue to study in hinger education. And ChitAnong Bouasavanh said, "I hope that my knowledge can bring value as well as have a positive impact on the community."

    In August 2019, I am very fortunate because I participated in a 1-year student exchange program at Seoul Southern University (Korea). With the hope of my parents and the mission of Van Lang student, I always tell myself to try my best to complete my studies in Korea.

    Namseoul University was established in 1994. This is a private university in Korea and the curriculum is design in a creative direction through engineering and research; with many activities for students. The international students will be taught Korean in parallel with the program of specialized subjects in the classroom.

    At school, I not only study Korean as the main subject, but also participate in programs to experience Korean culture with students from many countries such as the exchange program between Korean students and foreign students, or the program to welcome new Vietnamese students and so on. For me, studying at Namseoul University is a very beautiful and meaningful time, because I can study and interact with modern science and civilized.

    vlu student in korea aActivities to welcome new Vietnamese students in Korea.

    Coming to a new country, different in language and culture, I have worries about life and the future. At that time, the biggest difficulty was probably the difference in language and weather.

    Two years of learning Korean at VLU is probably not enough because I have to study 100% in Korean here, so initially I was quite timid and nervous when communicating. However, thanks to the help of teachers, friends and the studying hard in the dormitory every day, I have gradually adapted to the environment and improved more and more.

    With international friends, although they are different in language and culture, everyone always helping and having fun with each other. There are a lot of memories, but I remember the first time I took the subway. It's really magical for me. Subway often run fast and space is like a miniature world of Korea. I sat and looked at the surrounding scenery, sometimes observed the subway, feeling very interesting.

    vlu student in korea eKim Loc in traditional Hanbok participated in exchange program between Korean and foreign students, visiting Kyung Bok Gung.

    The weather in Korea is always cold. I have experienced all four seasons: spring - summer - autumn - winter and clearly feel the climate change of this country. It is very difficult to live in the sub-zero cold, but after all, most foreign students are completely defeated by the beauty of each season. Seeing cherry blossoms bloom in spring, roses and tulips in summer, or fall with red maple leaves filling the road, and snowfall in winter are all wonderful experiences!

    One year of studying in Korea not only helps me improve my foreign language skills. I find myself really mature, learning how to solve problems, how to take care and protect myself when I'm alone in a foreign country. One year living here, I have understood why Korea has the miracle of the Han River, why the country can develop so strongly. For these reason, I love the country and language that I have chosen and pursued.

    The life away from home and the journey to pursue the dream will have certain difficulties but it is also interesting and bring opportunities. Please be confident, persistent with your dreams and try to accept opportunities during your study time at Van Lang University.

    According to the cooperation agreement signed with Kwangju University and NamSeoul University, Van Lang University periodically selects and supports Oriental students to study for 1-2 years in Korea.

    Students studying abroad for 1 year are exempted from 100% of tuition fees and only prepare living expenses. Students studying abroad for 2 years are entitled to 50% tuition fee and free dormitory fees. All of you are supported by universities in Korea to prepare accommodation in the dormitories.

    In 2019, the Faculty of Social Sciences & Humanities of Van Lang University selected and brought 4 exchange students to study at Kwangju University and 2 students to study abroad at Namseoul University. They are the students who meet the requirements for academic result (consider the students with the highest score in the final course), active in activities and have the desire to participate in the exchange student program.

    12 days 11 nights… not just an internship

    Closing the journey of 12 days and 11 nights, we have traveled together with countless memories. The teachers, guides and representatives of the travel company dedicatedly and sincerely helped us learn many things from the journey. We are trained in the skills that a professional tour guide needs to have. They include the profession of instruction, the profession of narration, the presentation of the car, how to check-in - check-out for guests, how to create sympathy with guests, teamwork skills, photography skills, and so on.

    Not only enjoying, each of us has a notebook, photos at each destination. They will be our handbook in the future.

    The activities of the journey became beautiful memories of friendship, teacher-student love. For me, the visited - places are places that I have only seen through pictures before. I was touched when I heard the narration at Quang Tri ancient citadel; enjoyed the ancient beauty of Hue Citadel, the tomb of Tu Duc King; impressed with peaceful scenery at Pleiku sea lake and Hoi An city; overwhelmed with the majestic beauty of Phong Nha Cave, Eo Gio - Ky Co, Da Dia rapids and so on. With these experiences, we love the lands more as well as love the career that we will embark on in the future.

    MSc. Ho Dang Bach Ly shared about his work "Covid Imprint": "This is an idea I have cherished for a long time, during the Covid pandemic. With the topic of the environment, I want to exploit a new aspect: During the pandemic, people focus on protecting their personal health but miss many other important factors. The work shows us the waste that people produce in the process called self-protection. But how about we protect the top, and the bottom is full of garbage? As such, we need to take a more holistic view.”

    Attending the program, the young participants experienced a series of knowledge transmission spaces with the main contents including:

    • "Inspire" space with the speech Youth and the way to realize SDGs, share stories “Following the footsteps of people living green”;
    • The "Cohesive" space and open discussion sessions were held around issues of green and sustainable living;
    • The "Action" space allows young people to boldly speak up their new ideas and perspectives and listen to the experts’ insights.

    vlu youthspeak mien nam dien dan cho nguoi tre song xanh dAttendees are randomly divided into groups and participate in discussions, creating projects by topic.

    vlu youthspeak mien nam dien dan cho nguoi tre song xanh fTeams present their ideas, projects and proposals to the judge.

    During the presentation of ideas and critiques, Mr. Ho Viet Hai and Ms. Nguyen Da Quyen - Judge of the creative competition proposed solutions to reduce harmful effects on the environment, raised sharp questions or contributed ideas with practical meaning. Ms. Nguyen Da Quyen shared: “What you are missing is turning ideas into actions. Having an idea is easy, but turning an idea into action and concrete projects is not so simple. Today you meet wonderful friends, you can turn your idea around or make your idea better, more complete and then turn it into concrete action. If you only stop at an idea contest, presenting Youthspeak's ideas this year, you will still have the same idea next year when you sit down again, but society will have nothing new, so what I want is for you to know how to share seeds like this idea to people, to the community.”

    Within the framework of the event, young people were also registered to participate in the Workshop series with 4 different topics:

    • The Real Well-being
    • Thinking Out-of-the-box
    • Science of Habit Formation
    • Critical Thinking
