MODERN AND SPECIALIZED TEACHING METHODOLOGIES AND LEARNING CONDITIONS
Here at TDTU, we have built two Creative hubs. The first is an 11-storey structure designed specifically for teaching and studying Industrial Fine Arts, Architecture, as well as Electrical and Electronics Engineering. With an up-to-date infrastructure including classrooms, simulation rooms for high tech graphic design, drawing rooms, a sewing firm, a studio, a fashion showroom, etc. In this professional learning environment, students will have the opportunities to let their creative instincts flourish. There is even a solar energy station installed on the rooftop which satisfies the power use for these two buildings monthly. (This same facility acts as a practical model for teaching Renewable Energy, unique in Vietnam).
THE BUILDING OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES consist of six fully furnished and well-equipped floors to serve all the necessities in the teaching, learning and academic activities of foreign languages such as: English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, etc. Each of the classrooms is equipped to cater for foreign language learning as desks and chairs are easily moved for a group discussion or interactive activities. With the adaptation of new English teaching research, the “Little UK” program, will open up the inherent neurological language potential within each student. The staff and lecturers have created a fantastic learning environment and are practicing new teaching methodologies to raise graduates’ English proficiency in the next few years.
TDTU INSPiRE library was designed by TDTU faculties and students with Learning Commons as the model. The building has 7 floors and a basement for self-studying overnight. Each floor has its own decor color and name. The library is divided into specific areas including the area for group study, self-learning, cinema, lounge, studio and specialized areas according to students’ major at the university. Hence, INSPiRE library could be considered the most modern library in Vietnam. Professor Nguyen Van Tuan(when visiting TDTU) expressed his feeling that the library should be placed number one in South East Asia for its amazing facilities, capacity and the kind of equipment that he “has never ever seen before”.
The library plays an important role as the heart of the university and it is true to say that the investment has been worthwhile. This is not only the place where students and lecturers are guaranteed the best conditions for learning and teaching but it also helps bring TDTU main campus up to the international standard.
THE INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION CENTER was opened to serve the requirements of researching, teaching and learning of the foreign experts, professors and students at TDTU. Students will not want to miss "Little UK" on the first floor where they can learn practical English to develop thinking skills and be more fluent in applying the language to real life situations, with the help of the experts, of course. This place is a must-try for students on their way to becoming global citizens. The center is truly a destination for TDTU learners who wish to have access to the TOP 500 universities in the world and live and work an intellectual life without boundaries.
THE "5 STAR" DORMITORY consists of two 11-storey blocks which were beautifully designed to accommodate around 2,200 students whilst still meshing with the overall architectural principles of the school. Here, students are offered necessities and amenities such as grocery stores, copy shops, stationers, laundry rooms, and canteens, etc. Nearby, there is a swimming pool, tennis court, basketball, volleyball, and Gymnasium... Students can live, study and spend their recreational time in a clean, green and healthy environment.
In the Dormitory standard room, each student will have private furniture such as: a bed, wardrobe, desk, etc. Three-toilet compartments function as bath, toilet, and laundry facilitate students in their living and study on campus.
TDTU SPORTS COMPLEX with a modern system of mobile platform chairs, and a capacity of 3,000 seats with a central air conditioning system, is always available to accommodate national and international tournaments. Students can choose from a variety of 23 different sports and the facilities allow them to train in disciplined manner either alone or as part of team. Besides swimming as a compulsory sport, every TDTU student can choose to play at least one more sport. This complex is of an international standard and has been recognized as one of the best sports training units nationwide. Even the most prestigious sports universities couldn’t afford to have facilities as amazing and modern as TDTU. This shows how much the President of the board values high performance athletes and how much he believes in the use of sport to facilitate the crafting of highly successful people in all walks of life.
THE SWIMMING POOL was built on a stretch of land measuring 778.5 m2 and the area of the pool itself is 13.5 m x 25 m with 6 swimming lanes that can hold up to 100 students. There is a water filter system using Intelí Ozon Waterco Filtration operating under traditional principles combined with state of the art improvements. This ensures that there are no cracked pipes, creating a perfect water filter system different and more efficient than conventional pools.
