Field of Research - Application

  1. Teaching theory and practice of modules such as Environmental Quality Management, Ecosystem Management, Practice of Environment and Natural Resources Management, Graduation Thesis, ... 
  2. Instructing students to practice.
  3. Carrying out research on assessment of environmental resource management and biodiversity. Specifically, the analysis of biodiversity indicators of groups of organisms will be applied to the conservation of biological resources, including the maintenance of native species in parallel with the management and prevention of alien species.
  4. Analysing biodiversity indexes as indicators of aquatic and benthic groups applied to the assessment of soil and water quality...
  5. Supporting research and sample analysis in domestic and foreign cooperation projects.
  6. Archiving samples of biodiversity in the Mekong Delta region


Research and Development Orientation

The laboratory focuses human resources development in which the staff are regularly attended in laboratory skill training.  

The laboratory focuses on purchasing laboratory equipment to meet the demand of teaching practical courses and doing research projects in professional fields as well as other related fields and industries.
