DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY – UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS
1. Overview of Department of Environmental Engineering Technology
The Department of Environmental Engineering Technology (DEEET) was established by Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU) very soon from the foundation day of TDTU. In fact, this program is the first academic program of TDTU in Southern of Vietnam.
Students pursuing the degree of this educational program are provided knowledge to accommodate the needs of a diverse range of disciplines which are associated to fundamental topics, such as air quality, water quality, air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, composition and physico-chemical properties of water and wastewater, water resources protection, fluid dynamics, hydraulic structures, water supply treatment plant, domestic and industrial wastewater treatment systems, design and management of water supply and drainage networks inside and outside buildings, and operation, maintenance, and automation of water supply and drainage system. Graduates are able to successfully work on environmental assignments such as pollution monitoring, environmental management, site assessment and remediation, waste management, resource management, and sustainability management. Especially, they are trained to be on the front lines of environmental protection.
To help students access teaching programs undertaken in advanced countries around the world, the DEEET program structure was comprehensively modified during the period of 2015 – 2016. The revised discipline program structure was approximately 70% compatible to environmental engineering program undertaken by University of Florida, U.S.A. which is one of the top 100 leading universities in the world (according to QS World University Ranking).
1.2. Career opportunities
Engineers graduating from DEEET can satisfies demand of human resource in companies and enterprises. According to annual statistics, it is found that annually over 90% of graduated students work in the field of Water Supply and Sewerage – Water Environment; 45% of students get jobs in the last year of the education; over 55 enterprises contact for personnel recruitment; over 80% of enterprises are satisfied with quality of the program. Generally, graduates can work in:
- Water supply, sewerage, and urban environment companies.
- Consulting, design and construction companies.
- Trading-Services & Manufacturing materials and equipment business water supply and sewerage companies.
- M & E companies.
- Training institutions in water supply and sewerage.
- Centers for rural water supply and sanitation.

- 3. Educational program
The program objectives are to train students to be good in both theory and practice, independent in working, be able to integrate and develop in the labor market which requires high qualifications in Vietnam and over the World. By the academic year of 2014 – 2015, due to the need of innovation to gain access to the program of the world's leading universities, the Environmental Engineering Technology program has consulted 20 programmes of Top 100 university of the world according to QS Ranking and THE. Besides, the program is also adjusted to fit the current conditions in Vietnam and the training objectives of TDTU.
At the end of each semester, according to the procedures of compiling and editing the course specification of TDTU, all course specification of DEEET program will be considered to improve. This process is normally conducted every 2 years. However, in the special cases, when the stakeholders (e.g. students, lecturers, imployers, and alumni) raise any request, for instance, the Head of DEEET will submit a proposal to the Dean who then show further suggestion to the University Board for asking the approval. The course specification is then allowed to be reviewed and adjusted. Finally, the outline will be approved by the university board and put into operation to replace the expried one. The training program of Top 100 universities has been applied from the academic year 2015 – 2016 to train human resources who meet the labor market and global integration trend, and help learners more active and self-study.
