Water Resources University (WRU) was established in 1959 with the precursor as Electricity Water Resources Institute. After 46 years of establishment and development, the University has educated enormous scientific and technical staff contributing actively of water resource development in Viet Nam.

To look back past 46 years since establishing, the University was undergoing development in the critical difficult conditions of national Anti- American War period.

In the aspect of International co-operation, the university has developed relationship with oversea through academic and technical collaborative and exchange universities, companies, institutes, international organizations.

Thank to the achievement the University achieved to date, the Government and Vietnam Communist Party has granted WRU noble rewards as Hero of Labor of “doi moi” period, Ho Chi Minh Medal in 2004.

In July 1959, Secretariat Committee of Vietnam Communist Party issued a resolution to establish Hydro - Power Institute, forerunner of existing Water Resources University. In 1964, Water Resources University, which was a component of Hydro- Power Institute, became the first professional university to provide hydraulic engineers for the country. In 1997, Center ĐH1, a 3 combination model, updated to 2nd base of WRU by Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, marked a development step in training work and became a training center at Bachelor and postgraduate levels for staff in southern provinces in order to supply qualified scientific human resource in hydro-power and water resources fields.
Currently, the total of staff includes more 600; of which 362 lecturers, 9 professors, 41 associate professors, 211 doctors and masters. 2 staff with the title of People's Teacher and 58 staff with the title of Meritorious Teacher have been awarded by the State so far.
