University (EPU) was first founded as Hanoi School of Practical Industry in
1898 by French people. After the reunification of the country in 1954, the
school was divided into two smaller schools named School of Engineering No.1
and School of Engineering No.2. In June 1962, the School of Engineering No.1
was renamed School of Electrical Mechanics. In February 1966, the Ministry of
Industry (now Ministry of Industry and Trade) decided to split the school into
two schools: School of Electricity (later called School of Electricity No.1)
and School of Mechanics. Later on, in April 2000, due to structural
rearrangement of Vietnam Electricity, School of In-Service Training and School
of Electricity No.1 were merged and renamed School of Electrical Engineering
No.1 by the Ministry of Industry. In October 2001, the Ministry of Education
and Training decided to upgrade the school to Electric Power College. After
five years, on 19 May 2006, the Prime Minister issued a decision to establish
the nowaday Electric Power University.

FACULTIES AND CENTERS
FACULTY OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Since 1898, the Faculty
of Electrical Engineering has developed in parallel with the establishment of
the School of Practical Industry - the forerunner of the nowaday Electric Power
University. At present, total teaching staffs include 52 faculty members. There are many articles on International Scientific
Indexing (ISI) and hundreds others published in domestic journals and local conferences.
The faculty members have also participated in a State-level project on smart
grids and in many projects at Ministry, EVN, and university levels. The faculty
has major duties in provision of high quality manpower training, scientific
research and technology transfer in the field of electrical engineering.
