Firstly, it inherits a team of highly qualified scientists (in particular, in 2017, there were nearly 45 Professors and Associate Professors appointed, bringing the total number of Professors and Associate Professors to nearly 300). Secondly, it conducts training on the basis of the laboratory system, the infrastructure for research equipped for many years by the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, this is one of the important factors contributing to the quality of the graduate university’s training. Thirdly, the Graduate University of Science and Technology and the Vietnam – France University have worked closely together and made progress in managing postgraduate training and maintaining the quality of training under the brand name of the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology. The newly appointed professors and associate professors not only participate in teaching at the Graduate University, but also teaching at the educational institutions of the Vietnam – France University as well as educational and training foundations across the country.
