Overview of the Information Technology industry
Nowadays, Information Technology (IT) is considered one of the most attractive and popular fields of study for many students. With technology being applied in various aspects of life, such as manufacturing, business, education, healthcare, and government administration, the IT industry is increasingly asserting its position.
In the modern era, the IT field serves as both a stepping stone to keep up with global development and an opportunity to optimize labor productivity and reduce manual labor and production costs. Despite the strong trend in the IT industry, the biggest challenge lies in the availability of skilled workforce. Therefore, this is considered a golden period for students to study and work in the IT field, showcasing their talents and shaping a bright future for themselves.
The International Training and Cooperation Institute (ITCI) was established in 2008, under East Asia University of Technology. With a mission to provide internationally standardized courses, ITCI focuses on educational partnerships with renowned universities and educational institutions worldwide, aiming to elevate the quality of education for Vietnamese students.
Modern and well-equipped facilities
Students have the opportunity to learn from experienced professors, including many who hold doctoral degrees, professorships, and foreign experts who have studied or worked abroad. In addition to academic knowledge, students also receive training in soft skills. From the first year, students are assigned to work on major projects within the university and have the opportunity to intern at various organizations and large enterprises.
The IT program is designed with four knowledge blocks: General knowledge, foundational knowledge, specialized knowledge, and internships. The curriculum is integrated and balanced, combining fundamental knowledge with the latest technologies and techniques. Importantly, students are trained to focus on practical skills, application abilities, and creativity. The courses are designed with a reasonable pace to stimulate students’ interest in learning right from the beginning.
Information Technology: What’s Included in the Specialized Knowledge Block?
The specialized knowledge block comprises integrated courses that strike a balance between fundamental knowledge from mathematics and basic science in the IT field, as well as programming, terminology, database, operating systems, computer networks, software development, project management, and even subjects like artificial intelligence and blockchain.
Specialized fields include:
- Computer Networking & Communications
- Software Engineering
- Computer Science
- Management Information Systems
