Dual Diploma Program with Istanbul Technical University

Picture of Dual Diploma Graduates 2012.

Our dual diploma program is an undergraduate program for Turkish students in which the participants spend half of their education at a campus of the State University of New York (SUNY) and half at a Turkish university.

The University at Buffalo (UB) partnered with Istanbul Technical University (ITU) in 2003 to implement a dual diploma program offering undergraduate degrees in civil engineering and environmental engineering, with the first cohort graduating in 2008. While the environmental engineering dual diploma program is no longer accepting new students, the civil engineering dual diploma program continues to enroll new students each year.
