The dual diploma program offers students a highly unique experience and prepares them for the increasingly global world. Turkish students study at Istanbul Technical University (ITU) for their freshman and junior years and at the University at Buffalo (UB) for their sophomore and senior years. Upon completion of the degree, students receive a diploma from each university.
