d. Digital audio, image, and video processing: provides the knowledge and skills to analyze, design, program the digital signal processing algorithms on audio, video, and image signals, to implement the applications such as audio and image enhancement, data compression, object identification, speech recognition and synthesis, music applications, etc. These algorithms can be applied in various areas, from entertainment, electronic commercial, to traffic control or security, criminal affairs.
1.2. Career Opportunities:
Students who graduate with the Bachelor degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering can find their jobs in the following posittions:
a. Governmental organizations: including research centers and institutes; the telecommunication service management of different levels: City Post Office, Local Post Office, central and local televisions (HTV, SCTV, VTV); companies working on communication services such as Viettel, Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT), etc., and a lot of branch companies: VTC Telecom, VTC Intecom, VTN, VTI, etc.; universities and colleges that have programs related to Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering.
b. Private companies and corporations, foreign companies: there are a lot of private companies working on electronics and telecommunication field. Their main purposes include product selling and distribution, consulting, designing, and maintaining communication systems. This opens plenty of opportunities for students who graduate from this field:
- Famous foreign corporations like Siemens, Alcatel, Ericsson, etc. Consumer electronic device (desktop, laptop, etc.) companies such as Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, LG, HP, etc.
- Microelectronic design: Renesas, Intel, etc.
- Telecom equipment and solution companies: Siemens, Tektronix, Rohde & Schwarz, Keysight Technologies, etc.
c. Other opportunities: students who graduate from Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering field and have research about signal processing can work in the companies in related fields such as computer science, biotechnology, or medical engineering. Students who pursue the telecom and data networking field can also work in large companies having the demand to build up an inside communication network, for example, banks, schools, hospitals, etc.
- 2. LEARNING OUTCOMES OF THE PROGRAM
The Expected Learning Outcomes (ELOs) is the starting point of the curriculum design process and is built according to a rigorous, scientific process in which it reflects the vision and mission of the university and faculties and is suitable to the course objectives and meets the needs of stakeholders.
The ELOs will be concretized according to the principle of "directional compatibility" in step-by-step subjects to help learners gain professional qualifications & skills in knowledge, skills, attitudes and professional responsibilities after completing the training program. The content of the program also enhances group work activities, training habits of active self-studies and creative thinking for students to be proactive and ready for development opportunities.
The ELOs are committed by the University to students, society and published on the Website.
- 3. THE UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMME
The curriculum is a system of theoretical and practical knowledge that is designed synchronously with the method of teaching, learning and evaluating learning outcomes to ensure learners accumulate knowledge, gain the necessary competencies according to the published expected learning outcomes corresponding to the university level. The curriculum of Ton Duc Thang University is built in a way that is compatible with the program of the world's TOP 100 universities according to the rankings of QS and THE but is adjusted to suit the conditions and realty in Vietnam and the training target of Ton Duc Thang University.
Periodically, the university reviews and evaluates the curriculum to ensure that the students meet the requirements of society in terms of professionalism after graduation as well as update the changes in technology and new business methods, etc. This process has the full participation of key stakeholders including scientists, employers, alumni, students, and lecturers. The TOP 100 program has been delivered by the university since 2015 to train human resources to meet the labor market and global integration trend, to help students to be more active and self-study, to approach the latest training approaches in the world.
The curriculums are published to students through student portal and on the website.
