Faculty of Applied Science

  • Division of Applied Mathematics
  • Division of Biomedical Engineering
  • Division of Engineering Mechanics 
  • Division of Applied Physics


History & Mission

As a new division of the HCMUT, The Faculty of Applied Science (FAS) was established in 2003 in an effort to respond the demand of professionals in interdisciplinary hi-tech engineering fields such as biomedical engineering, photonics, engineering mechanics, nanotechnology, computational physics etc.

 The Faculty of Applied Science has a mandate to produce a class of engineers with solid scientific and technical background enabling them to specialize in applied sciences, to perform research and development or especially working in high technology.


Staff    & Facilities

Presently the faculty is grouped into 4 departments and 7 laboratories. The total number of personnel is 55 including 1 Prof., 5 Assoc. Prof., 16 Senior Lecturers. FAS has a strong academic research potential from its laboratories especially the Lab of  Laser Technology, the Lab of Applied Mechanics, the Lab of Computational Mechanics and the Lab of Computational Physics. These facilities provide opportunities for practical training while promoting scientific research and technology transfer.
