Introduction to SUNY Korea
SUNY Korea was established in March 2012 as the first American university system in Incheon, South Korea. In 2012, Stony Brook University, which is a prestigious university that represents the SUNY system, began to offer programs in South Korea as part of the Ministry of Education’s decision to serve the transnational needs for quality and global education. In 2017, Fashion Institute of Technology, a world leading fashion school, joined the cause to offer their renowned programs at SUNY Korea.
Currently, SUNY Korea offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Technological Systems Management, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Business Management, and Electrical Engineering from Stony Brook University (SBU), and associate programs in Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management from Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Students of SUNY Korea can expect to experience authentic American higher education by taking courses in both South Korea and the U.S.
