Department of Information Systems


December 3


Department of Information Systems (DIS) was established in 1995 at the same time as the establishment of the Faculty of Information Technology, VNU University of Science (previously named University of Natural Sciences). Now, DIS has a team of staff  experienced in both teaching and scientific researching, including 6 Associate Professors, 5 Doctors, 6 Masters, and several excellent students working as teaching assistanDr. Most of the staff in DIS got the PhD degree at advanced institutes and universities in foreign countries, such as France, Japan and South Korea. In addition, DIS has many professors and lecturers, at advanced schools and institutes abroad, who participate as part-time lecturers.

During 20 years of development since the establishment, the Department received 4 certificates of merit and 9 emulation titles of VNU President. The staff of the Department received the title of Meritorious Teacher (i.e., Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hà Quang Thụy, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lê Minh Khanh), Third-Class Labor Medals (i.e., Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hà Quang Thụy, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lê Minh Khanh), 02 Merit of the Prime Minister, 01 title of IT Golden Globe, 05 Certificates of Minister of Education and Training, 05 Certificates and Honors of Hanoi, 16 Certificates of Merit from VNU President.

The Department of Information Systems is responsible for developing Information System majors in the Faculty of Information Technology(FIT), including bachelors, masters, and doctoral levels. Lecturers of the Department have participated in developing the programs, course outlines, text books, and teaching many fundamental subjects of Information Technology. The Information System programs as well as their cousers are designed following the Standard Orientation of ACM organization. Currently, the Department is mainly responsible for the design and training:

• Bachelor program of Information Systems (following ACM/AIS 2010 orientation)

• Master program of Information Systems

• Doctoral Program in Information Systems

Since 2013, these programs have been updated with new trends in the Information Systems, keeping pace with the corresponding training programs at famous universities in the world (such as such as Carnegie Mellon University – USA, National University of Singapore, …).

The department is responsible for teaching a large number of undergraduate subjects (i.e., 29 subjects) for Information Technology major. For graduate programs, the Department is mainly responsible for Information System programs with 42 specialized subjects. In addition, the Department currently teaches about 8 topics for PhD students.

Over 20 years of development, the Department of Information Systems has over 900 bachelors of science, 300 Masters and 15 PhDs.
