Research Profile

The Vietnamese-German University (VGU) is designed as a research university. Our goal is to become one of the leading research universities in Vietnam and Southeast Asia, meeting international standards and setting regional benchmarks.

VGU particularly focuses on research projects in the fields of High-Tech Engineering and Sustainable Development. By catalyzing innovation and technology transfer, by implementing a strong research environment and by training excellent scientists, VGU responds to the fast-growing demand for highly-qualified academics and a thriving research culture.

Five interdisciplinary research fields have been identified as being prior:

  • Traffic, Transport, Mobility, Logistics
  • Renewable Energy Technologies, Lightning Technologies
  • Water Technologies and Water Resource Management
  • Sustainable Urban Development
  • "Green" Development and Resource Managment, Biodiversity/Climate Change, Biotechnology

VGU´s research activities are closely linked to our study programs. Postgraduate studies and doctoral training take place in close collaboration with VGU´s research centers. VGU seeks to train excellent academics and to provide ample qualification to Vietnamese scientists, so they can compete on an international level.

It is our mission to establish an outstanding research culture in Vietnam. We develop, implement and realize high-quality research projects, attracting scientists from all over the world. Our research programs ensure an exceptional education for young academics and catalyze technology transfer and innovation.
