The center of Informatics, which is the forerunner to the faculty of Information Technology, was found in 1990 with the duties of deploying and training in information technology and applications. From 1991 to 1993, the center deployed 14 training courses for 4000 students. Besides, the center also took a role as an academic department that taught the subject of Fundamentals of Information Technology for all students of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education.

In 1994, the center started to deploy the college training system which was accredited by the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training. The faculty of Information Technology was then officially found in 2001 based on the center of Informatics. The faculty focused on training engineers and teachers in Information Technology. In the early years, there were two academic departments: Networking - Telecommunications, and Software Engineering. Two other departments were then established including : Information Systems, and Intelligent Technology. In 2010, the department of Intelligent Technology was renamed to the Fundamentals In Information Technology. Currently, the faculty consists of 31 lecturers (until 02/2015) in which there are 7 lecturers being studying abroad.

More than 1000 college graduates and 1500 engineers or teachers have graduated from the faculty. It is in our plan, in 2016, the faculty will start to deploy Master program in Computer Science. This is expected as the new development of the faculty.
