CET Vietnam: Summer

Course Availability

Our goal is to offer every single course every term, but sometimes factors like faculty availability and program enrollment keep us from reaching that goal. If you’re concerned about needing to enroll in any one particular course, please contact us! We’ll try our best to get you the course you need.

Intern in Vietnam

Don’t just study development, intern while abroad and get a peek at the inner workings of the field itself. An internship in Ho Chi Minh City provides you with a platform to connect your academics with practical, résumé-building experience, while giving you access to work life and culture in Vietnam. We work with you to match your major, interests, and language skills to the needs of a host organization in our local network.
