Students enrolled in Pharmacy and Biotechnology will gain advanced and up-to-date knowledge, supported by a modern laboratory system that DTU has developed over the years for its students and faculty in these fields.
DTU Building C, Fully - Equipped for Teaching and Learning
DTU has dedicated Building C to modern labs that serve both teaching and research purposes. It's rare for universities to invest so heavily in facilities that support education to the extent seen at DTU. 
Specifically for the Pharmacy program, from their first year, students practice in foundational laboratories to master professional knowledge. As they progress to their majors, students gain confidence with in-depth knowledge of pharmacology, pharmaceutics, pharmaceutical industry, medicinal herbs, traditional medicine, and quality control, all taught in over 10 advanced laboratories.

Modern Facilities for Pharmacy at DTU Supporting both Education and Research
Students manipulate equipment mostly imported from abroad, which only pharmacy students with a certain level of foundational knowledge can use, including: rotary tablet presses, capsule filling machines, a multipurpose pharmaceutical compounding system (used for making tablets, ointments, etc.), film coating machines, dissolution testing equipment, UV-Vis spectrophotometers, essential oil distillation systems, and rotary vacuum evaporators.
The campus also features a Medicinal Herb Garden established according to the Essential Medicinal Plants List issued by the Minister of Health. The garden preserves and propagates valuable medicinal plants for research and pharmaceutical production, aiming to transfer high-quality research results to pharmaceutical companies and healthcare facilities, including traditional medicine establishments in Da Nang, Quang Nam, and others.
DTU Pharmacy students get practical experience in simulated pharmacies under the guidance of the university’s specialized pharmacists. They are trained in consultation techniques, medication instructions, drug categorization, inventory management, clinical case drug analysis, pharmacy management, and staying updated on pharmacological knowledge.
For students studying Biotechnology at DTU, they are given access to even more advanced machinery and equipment, supporting the research activities of the university's specialized research centers and institutes. DTU prioritizes, encourages, and facilitates Biotechnology students to study and conduct research within its system of research centers, including:
- The Center for Molecular Biology,
- The Center for Entomology and Parasitology,
- The Center for Advanced Chemistry,
- The Cell Technology Lab.
In this environment, students are provided with specialized knowledge in both theory and practice. They are trained in skills and gain hands-on experience through various practical courses in laboratories, fieldwork, and industrial internships. Students have the opportunity to engage with factories, production facilities, research institutes, and universities directly related to their specialized knowledge in Biotechnology. This comprehensive approach ensures that they are well-prepared for professional challenges in their field.
Outstanding Q1 journal articles from the classroom 
The dynamic and creative learning environment at DTU has become a foundation for Pharmacy and Biotechnology students to make their mark in various fields. This environment has facilitated the production of outstanding Q1 journal articles from the classroom and numerous significant awards.

Dr. Nguyen Thanh Trung from the DTU Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology 
Not only Gia Thi but all students pursuing Biotechnology at DTU enjoy highly favorable conditions for learning and scientific research in the university’s state-of-the-art laboratories. They have opportunities to attend professional conferences and seminars both domestically and internationally, where they can network, learn, and collaborate with research groups in related fields. Additionally, students are directly taught and mentored by experienced lecturers who have graduated from prestigious universities worldwide. A notable example is Dr. Nguyen Thanh Trung, who mentored Gia Thi and is also the creator of the "Home-scale Cordyceps Cultivation Cabinet," which won first place in the 2022 Da Nang City Innovative Start-up Competition.
In the field of Pharmacy, with the project "Research on Encapsulating Baeckea frutescens L. Essential Oil using Saccharomyces cerevisiae Yeast Cells for Controlling Dengue Fever Mosquito Larvae," student Vo Van Hoa was awarded second place at the 2023 Ministry-level Student Scientific Research Awards. This recognition underscores the university's commitment to fostering significant scientific contributions and practical solutions to real-world problems.
