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 (ABET accredited), MS, and PhD degrees. It is tightly integrated with the CS department of Stony Brook University (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 at 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 considerable 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.
