The smart buildings will supply a one-stop service for all procedures and data for students and lecturers at university and international students studying at the university, promoting transparency.

The university was one of four (Science and Technology Universities of Hanoi, Da Nang, HCM City and Hanoi University of Civil Engineering) in Vietnam attaining quality recognition by the High Council for Evaluation of Research and Higher education (HCERES), an independent administration from Europe, under the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education.

The university enrols 4,000 regular students each year.

Da Nang has led Vietnam in developing IT applications in the fields of e-Government, natural resources and environment, agriculture, tourism, building, traffic and public security.

The city plans to be a ‘green’ and ‘smart’ city by 2025.
