SUNY (State University of New York) Korea, is located in the Incheon Free Trade Zone (IFEZ) in Songdo, South Korea, about 1 hour from Seoul and about 20 mins from the Incheon International Airport. SUNY Korea (www.sunykorea.ac.kr) is committed to delivering high-quality research oriented MS and PhD programs in Computer Science while providing the full American university experience in Korea. The degrees granted are from Stony Brook University, a SUNY campus at Stony Brook, NY. Faculty and students in SUNY Korea will have an opportunity to be involved in a collaborative research/education venture with the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), under a Ministry of Knowledge Economy grant, the IT Consilience Creative (ICC) Program, for fostering premium IT professionals.
The Department of Computer Science (www.cs.stonybrook.edu) at Stony Brook University is consistently ranked among the top Computer Science research departments and the most recent NRC survey ranked it among the top 20 graduate programs in the U.S. The Department has more than 45 faculty and is in a stage of significant expansion, including new faculty and students, a new Computer Science building, a new Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT), SUNY Korea, and CEWIT Korea.
CEWIT (www.cewit.org) at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York, is a research and development center housed in a 100,000 square ft state-of-the art facility. CEWIT’s broad goal is to conduct first-class applied interdisciplinary research in the emerging, critical technologies of the information age and foster new enterprise development in these areas. The Center has about 70 associated faculty members, and close to 300 graduate students engaged in various forms of government and industry sponsored research. Practically all the faculty of the Computer Science Department are also CEWIT research scientists.
As a part of its globalization strategy, CEWIT has established a branch center in Songdo, co-located with SUNY Korea. The Korean branch (www.cewit.re.kr) works in active collaboration with the Center in New York, and will focus on technologies of strategic importance to Korea and foster global collaboration.
