“The advent of the eHUST System is considered a significant step in the digital transformation process of HUST”, Assoc.Prof. Huynh Quyet Thang said.

The system’s database shows its ability to extract reports and statistics quickly and precisely, thus, it responds well to the standardized data model of the Ministry of Education and Training, 

As a large size university with about 35,000 students, 2,000 officers and teachers, and more than 200,000 alumni, eHUST is expected to become a dynamic ecosystem supporting all stakeholders.

“Digital transformation is not simply a project, but can create critical changes in an any organization”, Dr. Dao Dinh Kha, former Director of Information Technology Department - Ministry of Information and Communications said.
