Talkshow Career Insight - Mr. Philip Hung Cao

Studying in the field of Information Technology at Phu Xuan University is the only place with a commitment to providing job placement for 100% of students. Unlike other universities that only collaborate with businesses, large IT enterprises are located right on the campus, making it easy for students to access. The academic program also includes a semester taught directly by business leaders. Many IT students from other universities even come to Phu Xuan for short courses to facilitate job placement. The university is the only institution to date that has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the People's Committee of Thua Thien Hue Province to supply 10,000 IT personnel in the period 2020-2030, turning Hue into an IT center for the region.

The IT program, regular undergraduate level, at Phu Xuan University trains bachelor's degrees focusing on specializations such as software technology, system engineering, data management, web application development, mobile application development, game development, IoT application development, system analysis, or becoming IT lecturers/teachers.

What do IT graduates do? Where do they work?

IT is an economic sector with very high demand for human resources, not only in Vietnam but also in developed countries such as Japan, the United States, Australia, and other Southeast Asian countries (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand). IT companies from Japan or Vietnam targeting the Japanese/American market have begun to implement plans to open branches in Hue.

IT graduates can also take on various roles in different organizations such as technology companies, financial institutions, banks, business entities, government agencies, schools, etc.

Who can study IT?

Many parents and students often think that studying IT is difficult, requires excellent math skills, leading to many students missing the opportunity to pursue a suitable career. IT offers a 100% job placement rate and a higher income by about 20% compared to the average salary upon graduation and 50% of the average salary after about 12-18 months of work.
