Overview of development history

Mr. Nguyen Sanh Dan and Mr. Pham Ngoc Dang were discussing the plan to move the University from Huong Canh, Vinh Phuc to Hanoi in 1982.

The Hanoi University of Civil Engineering was established in 1966 in Hanoi by the Government Council. Its predecessor wasthe Construction Faculty which had been managed for 10 years by Hanoi University of Science and Technology. 

Established in the war time, the University had to move from Hanoi Capital to evacuate to different localities in Ha Bac, Vinh Phu, etc. In late 1983, the University returned to Hanoi. Now it operates under the Ministry of Education and Training with its main campus in No. 55, Giai Phong Street, Hai Ba Trung District, Hanoi.

Over 65 years of training, 55 years of establishment and development, each step taken by the Hanoi University of Civil Engineering has been closely linked with the development of the industry, the Capital and the country. 

We have strived to become a multi-disciplinary training university offering educational opportunities from graduate to PhD levels as well as to be one of the leading centers in researching and applying scientific and technological advancements in the field of construction. Until now, the University has educated over 60,000 engineers and architects with more than 5,000 masters and doctors. Different generations of the University’s lecturers and students have been working throughout the country, contributing to the national defense and development.
