The Faculty of Information Technology (IT) was founded on November 11th 1994 when Duy Tan University was established. Over the past 23 years, the faculty has developed steadily, worthy of being the most important major at DTU and graduating highly-skilled professionals into the local workplace.
The mission statement of the IT Faculty is, “Training high-quality IT personnel with the professional knowledge, skills and discipline required by national and international business worldwide.” By 2020 the faculty aims to become a leading institution nationally for education and technology transfer and to become DTU’s pivot in research, business relations and international integration.
