Master program of Electrical Engineering

1. Introduction

At present, the needs of graduates in the field of electrical engineering are increasingly tending to shrink, but the direction of the energy management aspect is very necessary. Specifically, EVN is implementing a series of power management programs, the key of which is to build a roadmap towards a competitive electricity market over the next five years. Therefore, for the power sector of Vietnam, the demand for highly qualified human resources in the field of electrical engineering and understanding of energy management is very significant and urgent. Other businesses (not Electricity) operate in the wholesale and retail business such as PVN (Petro Vietnam) - the owner of many large power plants; Industrial parks (wholesale and retail for each factory in the area), large industrial plants (for example steel, minerals, cement), and investment firms. Trading in electric power products, there is demand for high-level human resources with knowledge of energy management. Therefore, the master's degree program in electrical engineering will combine two majors, Electrical Engineering and Energy Management. Students will study the subjects of basic knowledge and compulsory subjects, then choose intensive orientation according to the elective subjects. This maximizes the ability of students to equip themselves with practical knowledge to effectively serve their work and study interests. This is also the highlight, the difference of the Master's degree in Electrical Engineering at Ton Duc Thang University compared to all other schools jointly trained in this industry.

In addition, in order for the program to be highly applied, access to advanced knowledge is being taught at prestigious universities around the world, focusing on technology areas following the development trend of the way. Industrial Electronics 4.0, Faculty of Electrical and Electronics Engineering has conducted postgraduate studies in Electrical Engineering and Energy Management at some prestigious universities in the world.
