Accordingly, HUST offers 3 major academic models from Undergraduate level:
- The [4+0] model: 4 years for traditional bachelor programs.
- The [4+1.5] model: 4+1.5 years for integrated bachelor-engineer programs.
These programs aim at students who would like to develop their career in industry and specialized technical fields. The content and structure of these programs are designed similar to engineer programs of most of technical universities in developed countries.

These programs aim at students who are interested in R&D or academic research jobs after graduation (Master of Science Degree).
