DTU has been providing the community with highly qualified and dedicated engineers by offering majors in Engineering Architecture, Interior Architecture and Graphic Design. As living standards improve, the standards and skills of Architects must improve accordingly to design and construct the most appropriate and sustainable buildings. In 2017, DTU continues to enrol Architecture majors and provide them with the latest information by sharing programs with its international partners to enhance the level of education at the university.

With an understanding of the current international requirements to teach Architecture, DTU sends lecturers abroad to get practical experience in the latest construction techniques. Since 2010, DTU has partnered with universities worldwide in share their curricula, including the California State Universities in Fullerton and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, to implement the first and only advanced program in Architecture and Civil Engineering in Central Vietnam. California State University in Fullerton is the biggest university California State University system, while Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo is one of the five leading American universities majoring in Architecture.

At the same time, DTU has focused on building facilities with modern classrooms, laboratories and special studios for Architecture students. Engineering Architecture majors broaden their knowledge of construction design, ranging from small-scale to large-scale projects, from simple to complex, from formulating ideas about structures, technical and material integration and on, including Quick Design projects, Planning projects, and Industrial projects taught by dedicated lecturers who have graduated from universities in developed countries.

Architecture graduates will work as designers at design offices, design supervisors at construction sites and take jobs related to design and engineering management, as corporate architecture consultants, in government urban management, both at home and abroad.
