About Research

LHU has the aim of training highly qualified human resources for companies and factories to meet society’s labor market. To perform this, the University always considers scientific research as its key mission for these reasons.

- Research activity is an essential part in order to help students to approach and apply their knowledge into solving scientific problems set up by life and career. Then their knowledge is widened and improved.

- Scientific research assists students in training their creativity, logical mind, independent thinking and group working skills. These can help them gain more confidence in a new working environment after graduation.

- Research activity helps to raise the training quality and inspire innovations, new inventions and products as well.

Therefore, every year hundreds of research topics are conducted by lecturers and students at LHU. The University holds 2 turns for students in June and in December and one for lecturers in June. Up to now, the University has organized more than 35 research conferences for students and lecturers. There are many research topics winning prizes at the ministry and province levels.
