Major achievements / results
         When established in 1998, the School has 28 staff, including 17 people on the payroll for teaching and teaching, 11 researchers working under labor contracts with the Institute, including 2 Associate Doctors, 9 Doctors, 9 MSc. Up to now, the total number of the Institute's staff is 57 (27 lecturers, 03 researchers, 10 teaching staff on the school's staff and 17 researchers contracted to the school), including 1GS, 8 Assoc., 21 PhD, 21 MSc and 12 engineers.

         The total working area of ​​the Institute is nearly 1500 m2. The School is invested by the Government to build an Environmental Technology Research and Development Laboratory with a total budget of VND 45 billion (about US $ 3 million) from the budget. The laboratory has been put into effective operation, actively supporting the Institute's training and scientific research.

         The School of Environmental Science and Technology is one of the leading prestigious institutions in Vietnam for undergraduate and postgraduate training. Currently, there are two Departments at the university level: Environmental Technology and Environmental Management; at the graduate level there are two majors: Environmental Engineering and Natural Resources and Environment Management; at doctoral level with Environmental Engineering. So far, the Institute has trained 1558 Eng, 673 masters and 22 PhDs and is a reliable partner with universities, research institutes at home and abroad as well as international organizations. Besides, through the project project, the Institute also conducts many short-term training courses on: cleaner production, environmental monitoring, environmental quality analysis, environmental impact assessment, etc. .for officials working in the enterprise, as well as environmental management agencies at all levels.

Since its establishment, the School has completed 03 State or equivalent investment projects including Center for Environmental Monitoring and Industrial Pollution Control (2000), Public Research and Implementation Laboratory. Technology (2000-2006), Research Laboratory of advanced waste recycling technology (2015 - 2017), implemented 05 State-level projects, over 100 projects at ministerial / province / city level, many topics school grants, 02 national projects funded by Switzerland through UNIDO, 20 small projects funded by UN, Canada, Korea and Japan organizations. The school is the pioneer and leader in many areas of research that develop new issues in environmental protection such as programs for applying cleaner production at industrial facilities, research and problem solving. environment in Vietnamese craft villages, recycling electronic waste. Over the years, the school has carried out many basic studies on environmental treatment technology, and at the same time attaches great importance to conducting research into reality and transferring technology to users. The two divisions of the Institute have changed to the company model: Bach Khoa Environment-Friendly Technology Joint Stock Company and Vietnam Cleaner Production Center Co., Ltd., aiming to provide products, services and technology. elevation comes to market.

        In the trend of integration and development, the Institute's scientific research activities in the coming years will focus on the following directions: Development and promotion of environmentally friendly technologies; Development of integrated technologies for waste treatment; Reuse and recycle waste; Manufacturing materials for pollution treatment; Environmental science.

        Over the past 20 years, the School has cooperated closely with domestic and foreign environmental training and research units to exchange experiences, coordinate research and train human resources such as: i / Domestic: Institute Environmental Technology, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology; Institute of Environmental Science and Technology, Hanoi University of Civil Engineering; Department of Environment, University of Natural Sciences, Vietnam National University, Hanoi; Department of Environment, Da Nang University of Technology; Department of Environment, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology; Department of Environment, Hue College of Sciences; Quy Nhon University; Thai Nguyen University of Industrial Technology; Maritime universities; Mine geological college; University of Transport, ... ii / International: Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies, Graduate Institute of Engineering, Kyoto University (Japan); Saitama University (Japan); Meisei University; Japan Institute of High Technology Science and Technology; Japan Environment Research Institute, Japan Global Environmental Strategy Research Institute; JICA; Korea Research Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources; KOICA; Chonbuk University (South Korea); Asian Institute of Technology; Chianan University of Science and Pharmacy (Taiwan); Tsinghua University (Taiwan); National University of Singapore (NUS); Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), University of Technology Sydney (Australia); Wollongong University (Australia); University of Zittau Germany; Ghent University (Belgium); Lund University of Sweden; University of Lahti (Finland); UNEP; UNIDO; ...

Since its foundation, the School of Environmental Science and Technology has contributed positively to environmental protection activities.
