There are 1,871 staff members including 1,101 lecturers (11 professors, 133 associate professors, 399 PhDs and 794 masters).

In 2011, with the strategy of expanding the scale of training, bringing higher education closer to the countryside, CTU decided to establish a campus in Hoa An commune. This campus has become an important training center of the University with 11 specialized training programs for rural areas.

To achieve the above results, besides the efforts of the University, the support of the localities is very important, and the University has always received the timely attention of Hau Giang province in many aspects. On this occasion, CTU respecfully presented the emblems to Hau Giang leaders to acknowledge their contributions to the development of CTU and hoped that the link between the University and the localities will be further tight and firm.
