SUNY Korea (http://www.sunykorea.ac.kr) is located in the new master-planned city of Songdo, South Korea, hosting global organizations and multinational corporations. It offers residents unparalleled convenience and a highly distinctive architecture with many parks, a green lifestyle, and a vibrant international community. Incheon international airport is just 20-minutes away and Seoul with its fascinating blend of Asian cultures is less than 1 hour away.
SUNY Korea was founded in 2012 as the first US University on Korean soil. It is part of the largest university system of the United States – the State University of New York (SUNY). The computer science department is one of SUNY Korea’s first academic departments, offering BS, MS, and PhD degrees. It is tightly integrated with the CS department of SBU and the academic degrees awarded at SUNY Korea are identical to those of SBU. The SBU CS department is consistently ranked among the top 10% computer science research departments in the US, according to the US National Research Council. It is the mission of CS@SUNY Korea to provide the same excellence in research and teaching, bringing a new style of education and research to Korea.
Both the computer science department and SUNY Korea are set to experience massive growth in the next few years. Some academic departments, mostly in the college of engineering, are already here, and others will follow soon. All of these are or will be housed in close proximity, offering unprecedented opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and academic interchange. With computer science being a key discipline in SUNY Korea’s growing portfolio, there is strong support from both the university and the home institution at Stony Brook, NY.
The university itself is highly committed to providing students with a rich academic and cross-cultural experience. All undergraduate students and most graduate students spend a year at Stony Brook, NY. While the undergraduate student body consists mostly of Korean students – many of them extremely bright – the graduate students are a mix of Koreans and Internationals, similar to US universities. The official language at SUNY Korea is English and there is no need to know the Korean language.
