CTU has got 1462 staff including 867 teaching staff and 597 supporting staff. From a university with a few fields of study at the beginning, it has developed into a multidisciplinary university. Currently, it has 58 undergraduate, 27 Masters, and 6 Doctoral training programs. Every year CTU also  receives students on internship programs from the U.S, Belgium, Japan, or under agreements between their universities and CTU.

CTUs main missions are training, conducting scientific research, and transferring technology to serve the regions socio-economic development. In addition to its training responsibilities, CTU has actively taken part in scientific research projects, applying the advances in scientific and technological knowledge to solving problems related to science, technology, economics, culture and society in the region. From achievements in its scientific research and international cooperation projects, the university has developed a variety of products and technological production processes that benefit peoples lives and promote export, thus helping the University gain prestige in the national and international markets.               

The University has established scientific and technological cooperation with many international organizations, universities and research institutes. As a result of these cooperative projects, the staffs administrative capabilities and specializations have been upgraded, and facilities, experimental equipment and scientific materials have been added.

Most of the scientific research programs carried out by CTU are of local or national importance, but much attention has been paid to basic research, particularly in areas related to local conditions. For example, the research program VH-10, in collaboration with Dutch scientists, has provided not only international scientists with basic knowledge on acid sulfate soils of the world but has also provided farmers in the MD with scientific explanations of peculiar phenomena occurring in these soils. The study has helped farmers find ways to minimize the destruction of natural habitats while transforming acid sulfate soils, which cover more than 2 million ha of the MD, into farms for food production. The project has had a major impact on Vietnam's food production. Another example of a good balance between applied and basic research is the project VH-24, a joint research project between scientists of Wageningen Agricultural University in The Netherlands and CTU, to develop rhizobial inoculants for soybean and peanut plants introduced to paddy soils in the MD. The inoculaiits developed by the project clearly have good effects on the fertility of soil. Scientists with this project, among other responsibilities, have been working on the genetic stability of rhizobia introduced into harsh environment ( soils with low-pH levels, heavily-texture.d clay, highly toxic aluminum, the cycle of flood and drought, etc.) providing muc@ basic information to rhizobiologists around the world.
