Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education
All students of this program have to participate in original research. Most students enter the program with an undergraduate background in electrical/electronics engineering, telecommunication, computer engineering, physics, or a related discipline. In the first year of the program, the main emphasis is on the thesis overview. The program has no specific required courses, but there is a required minimum seminar. Each student’s assigned first-year academic advisor will assist in determining the appropriate seminars. After the midpoint of the first year, each student specifies the research direction. We suggest that students speak with all the professors in their areas of interest and chat with their graduate students as part of the decision-making process. After the decision process is complete, students begin participating in a research project under their research advisors' guidance.
The program's final stage requires writing a Ph.D. dissertation that should detail the new contributions to knowledge that have resulted from your research. An appointed faculty committee will examine the dissertation and, if it is found acceptable, the student may then present the dissertation to a Final Graduate Committee. In our Faculty, the meantime to completion of the Ph.D. is about 3 years.
