The 4.0 revolution has opened up a new era with the convergence of new technologies such as IoT – the Internet of Things, advanced robots, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, cloud computing, wireless mobile technology, and quantum computing.

Vietnam is emerging as a software outsourcing hub for the world. Consequently, the demand for IT workforce is very high, to the point of facing a “supply shortage” for engineers who possess both strong technical expertise and fluency in foreign languages.

By studying at NIIE, students are equipped with specialized skills in analysis, design, development, testing, operation, and maintenance of software systems and computer systems through internationally standardized training materials and practical projects with experts from industry.

Additionally, students have the opportunity to enhance English proficiency through 6 levels, ranging from basic to B2 standard (equivalent to IELTS 5.5 – 6.0) in a bilingual environment.
