Message from the Dean

During the process of national industrialization- modernization as well as the regional and international integration, we have been facing with many environmental problems that need to be solved for the national sustainable development. Over 10 years of establishment and development, the School of Environmental Science and Technology (hereinafter referred to as INEST)- Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) has affirmed to be one of the national leading institutions working in terms of human resource training, scientific research, service provision and technology transfer in the field of environmental protection. The Institute’s contribution has been acknowledged by numerous merit lists and rewards at the ministerial level for individuals and teams; and as the latest, the noble reward of Kovalevskaia 2007 of Professor- Doctor Dang Kim Chi.

With the competent and hearted academic staffs together with comprehensively-invested infrastructure, and with the support of Hanoi University of Science and Technology, we believe that INEST shall be a reliable partner and address of national and international  individuals and organizations in the activity of environmental protection. INEST shall contribute much to the work of environmental protection and national sustainable development.

Assoc Prof. Dr. Huynh Trung Hai



Year after year, the School of Environmental Science and Technology (INEST) has remained true to its mission and objectives. With the continued support of the Hanoi University of Science and Technology, it has contributed to the tasks of environmental protection with great enthusiasm and its achievements have earned three of its staff members the “Viet Nam Environment Award” in 2002, 2004 and 2005, while several others have been conferred the Certificate of Merit from the Ministry of Education and Training, Central Organizations and the President of the HUST.          

The national environmental challenges have been more and more complicated; however, the development of modern science and technology combined with the management of social and economic activities with the factor of environmental protection have been contributing much to the solution of urgent environmental problems. Leaning on the longstanding expertise of the HUST in a broad range of fields and on the dedication of its staffs, next generations of INEST members will act in even closer link with industrial enterprises as well as national and international counterparts to give valuable contributions to the development of the Vietnamese environmental industry.

In order to implement the strategy of environmental protection- sustainable development, it is necessary to establish a strong national potential of environmental science and technology. During the last years, although Vietnam has still faced with many difficulties, the Government has spent a huge investment by the domestic and foreign expenditure to create a fairly complete infrastructure for the School of Environmental Science and Technology- Hanoi University of Science and Technology. Such investment certainly is not out of expectation so that the institution can satisfy to some extent the above-mentioned strategic duty.

In the duration of its establishment and development, INEST has had spectacular steps, and overcome initial difficulties and obstructions. Today, with existing experiences and tradition and line-up in the peak of science and technology of Hanoi University of Science and Technology, we believe that INEST shall have impressive growth steps and become an advanced research and training institution keeping pace with international organizations.
