General Introduction


The School of Mechanical Engineering, Hanoi University of Science and Technology currently trains 02 groups of fields: Mechanical engineering, Mechatronic engineering. In which, the group of Mechanical Engineering has 05 fields of application: Manufacturing Technology; Welding Technology; Precision mechanics and optics; Forming Technology; Technology of plastic products. Mechatronic Engineering with 04 fields of application: Automated production systems, Automatic equipment, Smart mechatronic systems and Robots. With a team of experienced scientists including 148 teachers, staffs, including 3 professors, 27 associate professors, 62 doctors, 41 masters, the School’s professional structure includes 11 departments and 01 center. The School of Mechanical Engineering has the capacity to meet all training needs, from bachelor of technology, bachelor of engineering, engineers, masters, and doctorate.

With the establishment of Hanoi University of Technology, the Faculty of Mechanical – Electrical was established in 1956. Since 1960, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has been in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering – Metallurgy. In August 1966, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering – Metallurgy was divided into 3 faculties: Manufacturing Technology, Dynamics, and Metallurgy. In 1986, according to the two-level management mechanism, the Faculty of Manufacturing Technology was divided into specialized faculties. By November 1995, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering was re-established from specialized faculties on a three-block basis: Mechanical Technology, Engineering Mechanics, and Dynamic Mechanics. In 2000, the industry of Refrigeration and thermal equipment split into the Institute of Heat and Refrigeration Science and Technology. At the end of August 2006, the mechanical engineering industry was split into the School of Kinetic Engineering. By May 2009, the School of Mechanical Engineering was established on the basis of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

With the goal of training and providing highly qualified technical human resources to society, the School of Mechanical Engineering has fundamentally and comprehensively innovated according to international standards with a diversified, integrated, and interconnected training program. The educational philosophy of SME is: “To combine education with production, to attach theory to practice, to unite study with experiment, to connect university with society”, has been clarified in each curriclum.  The training goes hand in hand with scientific research and technology transfer with facilities and equipment that have been gradually upgraded, contributing to improving students’ qualifications and skills upon graduation.

Currently, the School of Mechanical Engineering is allowed by Hanoi University of Science and Technology to be autonomous in managing and building training programs, organizing training, researching science, and transferring technology. With the innovative and constantly improving organizational and management mechanism along with international cooperation for student exchange, the expanded School has facilitated the addition and development of a contingent of professional staff, management staff, meeting the increasing requirements of training, scientific research & technology transfer in the new stage, thereby contributing to the renovation and modernization of the country.
