Looking back over the past 28 years
Twenty-eight years may not seem long, but it has been enough to reaffirm the university’s reputation in the hearts and minds of thousands of students. Meanwhile, DTU has developed a unique brand and became a leading training and research university, earning both national and international prestige. During the voyage, the “Captain,” Hero of Labor and Meritorious Teacher Le Cong Co, was always at the helm together with his able crew of staff and lecturers, welcoming aboard his students and transporting them to their destination and ultimate success.

“I’m 82 already,” said Mr. Le Cong Co, as he shared his feelings at the celebration. “I remember when we first submitted our project to the Ministry of Education & Training they proposed some amendments and then forwarded it to the government. It seemed impossible, but finally the project was approved. I grew up personally with the support of the Revolution, the Party and the People, so I always thought that I should pay them back. Looking back, I have no regrets about my Fatherland, my origins, my family or friends. They all worked diligently according to their individual enthusiasm and strengths, as offspring of the Quang region. 
Today, we thank the leaders of our country and those of Danang, who always took care of us. We’re especially grateful to the DTU staff and lecturers who stood beside us through great difficulties, particularly during the two- year pandemic, when they gave all they had to teach online, implement modified programs, and still manage to schedule graduations on time. Finally, I’d want to give our students some advice, live for the Fatherland and your ancestry and become good citizens.”
The university has recently created seven new schools; the School of Computer Science; the College of Medicine & Pharmacy; the Hospitality & Tourism Institute; the International School; and the schools of Languages, Humanities and Social Sciences. These schools offer PhD degrees in 10 disciplines, Master’s degrees in 15, and Bachelor’s degrees in 47 majors and 100 minors.
