About SUNY Korea

SUNY Korea was established in March 2012 as the first American university founded in Korea’s only smart city, Songdo. It is also the first global campus inaugurated at the Incheon Global Campus and of SUNY and Stony Brook University (SBU) built outside of the US in an effort to provide global education to students. Every year, SUNY Korea continues to expand its program offerings in a variety of academic fields such as engineering, fashion, science, and more.


Currently, SUNY Korea is offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Technological Systems Management, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, and Business Management from Stony Brook University (SBU) and Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management from Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). The students in these programs will have a chance to take courses both in Korea and the US. To ensure identical quality of education, all program courses are the same as that of the home campuses and taught by their faculty. Upon graduation, all students receive a diploma issued by their respective institutions.


To accommodate students from around the globe and to make their college life memorable, we offer affordable on-campus housings, a wide variety of scholarships, and student activities. Students will also have opportunities to form a global network with students from neighboring universities on the Incheon Global Campus.


At SUNY Korea, we cherish moral values and strive to teach our students to serve others with humility and moral integrity. Our graduates will be history makers and change this world for the better.
