Advance institute of materials science (AIMaS)

AIMaS, a TDTU's research institute founded in 2017 from gathering of 8 research groups in various aspects: Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science. These are strong research groups led by distinguished and world-class experts. Our director is dynamic scientist. He accepted to serve as the Director of the AIMaS when it has just established and he is grateful for given this precious opportunity to serve the community.

AIMaS is carrying out world-class research activities, taking advantage of our top-class faculty members and research facilities and equipment. Those activities have concretely resulted in various positive outcomes including adoption and execution of advanced research projects with competitive funds and grants from the government and other organizations. AIMaS is becoming among top institutes in Vietnam in terms of the number and amount of funds of cooperative and contracted research per faculty member. Therefore, only after a year of operation, AIMaS has successfully become a well-respected member of the worldwide science community.
