Located in the center of the campus, the newly built dormitories are close to lecture halls, library, canteen, and sports area. The campus centre is within walking distance for students staying in dorms.

Da Nang

Situated in the southeast corner of Da Nang city at the Ngu Hanh Son district, FPT City is a 181-hector town. The town is composed of a downtown center, business district, and different neighborhood zones. FPT City is one of the first urban zones in Vietnam that is designed with a “green city” objective, with plans to reduce energy needs and carbon emissions from the population at the city.

At the heart of the city are FPT Complex and FPT University Da Nang. FPT Complex is an office complex specifying in information technology, software and e-services development. FPT University Da Nang is the university campus of the city, which include classrooms, research institute, and training center, with the aim to research and develop new technology and put them into practice.

Ho Chi Minh City

Located in Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) – FPT University Ho Chi Minh City currently is a small campus with the adequate facility. This campus has been designed to accommodate 2,000 students attending undergraduate programs.

So as to meet the increased demand in the number of new enrollments, a new modern building is under construction and will be put in to use in 2017. The architects claim the greenery will provide shade and improve air quality, reducing the campus’ reliance on air conditioning. They expect these semi-outdoor spaces to provide meeting, lunching and events areas for some of the 5,000 students that can occupy the campus at any one time.[4]


When founded in 2006, Dr., Associate Professor Truong Gia Binh , FPT Corp chairman of management board, was in charged of FPT University chairman, while Dr Le Truong Tung was the first Dean.[5][6] It is the first private university to be opened in Vietnam.[7]

Dr Le Truong Tung was in the position of FPT University Rector as well as FPT University chairman of BoD in 2011. Dr Dam Quang Minh has become FPT University Rector since September 2014, the youngest rector in Vietnam at that time. There are currently 20,000 students at FPT University studying full academic bachelor, partnership programme, postgraduate, polytechnic and high school.

All instructors would be required to have two years' working experience in the IT industry, and have to sit for an entrance examination. Foreign language teaching would form an integral part of the curriculum, and they aim to recruit native-speaking foreign language teachers and subject area teachers who can deliver their lessons in English.[8] After one year of language preparation, a foreign language would be used as the medium of instruction for all courses.[7] English would not be the only such language used; the Vietnam Software Association are working with the school's embedded software faculty to establish a programme in Japanese.[9]

FPT University will award a scholarship named Nguyen Van Dao to honour the memory of his great support when FPT University was founded. Professor Nguyen Van Dao was a world acclaimed mathematician and one of Vietnam’s leading education administrators. Microsoft, which is a strategic partner of the managing organization FPT, have an arrangement with the university to offer training to their students on Microsoft technologies.[10] At US$11,200 for the four-year course of study, the university's fees are extremely high, especially when compared to the US$720 cost of four years at a public university.

The fight to gain permission to open the university itself represented a rarity in Vietnam; the Ministry of Education (Vietnam) were originally unwilling to grant permission for the university to be opened, and delayed for two months the necessary approval for the university to begin enrolling students. FPT used the media to put pressure on the Ministry, which eventually signed the official approval document on 15 November 2006.[11]

The University currently runs a collaborative program with the University of Greenwich, England, the UK. The off-site Top-up +2, which commenced in August, 2009, is a collaborative program between the University of Greenwich in the U.K. and FPT University in Vietnam and this is currently the only program in Vietnam that awards Aptech graduates a U.K. bachelors’ degree in only 1 year.[12]
