In the new context of the national development, HUST is facing with the increasing importance and demand for highly qualified scientists and engineers to support Vietnam’s industrialization and globalization. The University is now on the right track of the country’s development strategies to become:

  • A multi-disciplinary higher educational institution with the international academic standards.
  • A top national centre for scientific research and technology transfer of the country.
  • An attractive address for students, and industrial and financial investors

School of Biotechnology – Food Technology (SBFT) is the basis of training, scientific research and technology transfer in the field of Biotechnology and Food Technology, under the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). It is a reliable address for training high quality human resources, scientific research and technology transfer in the field of efficient Food Technology and Biotechnology.

From its establishment in 1957 to date, faculty and staff of the SBFT have constantly been growing with many top experts of Vietnam in the field of food technology and biotechnology.
