Automotive Engineering is considered a key industry in the country’s industrialization strategy and the trend of deep and wide integration. Therefore, training a team of automotive engineers in Vietnam has become urgent as more and more companies participate in production, and assembly, and the amount of car consumption on the market is increasing rapidly.By studying Automotive Engineering Technology at NIIE, students are equipped with in-depth knowledge and skills in automotive maintenance, design, production, and business. The program particularly emphasizes practical hands-on experience with a modern practical training system at the school, real-world visits, apprenticeships, and internships at leading automotive manufacturing and maintenance facilities.Furthermore, students also have the opportunity to enhance their English proficiency through 6 levels ranging from basic to B2 level (equivalent to IELTS 5.5-6.0). This helps students integrate into an international working environment and advance in their careers upon graduation.
