If the Computer and Software Engineers of the future can attain knowledge and skill on a level that they can keep pace with the speed of technology, they will be advantageous in global competition that grows in parallel with the technologies developing in different places of the world. With bearing this in mind, Computer Engineering Dual Diploma Program (DDP – SUNY Fredonia) and Software Engineering Dual Diploma Program (DDP – SUNY Fredonia) are offered under the auspices of İzmir University of Economics. In order to be accepted to the program, the candidates must be successful in TOEFL Exam for English proficiency. The School of Foreign Languages gives an intensive English education for the students who cannot succeed in this exam. DDP – SUNY Fredonia Computer and Software Engineering offers a big opportunity for its students in terms of attaining international knowledge and experience.
The main aim in offering Computer Engineering Dual Diploma Program and Software Engineering Dual Diploma Program under the auspices of IUE is to make the students that will be educated in these programs to take high-level education throughout their undergraduate education in programs approved by Higher Education Councils of Turkey and the USA, to make them familiarize with both of the cultures, to develop their English language skills both at İzmir University of Economics (IUE) and State University of New York (SUNY) campuses and to provide them with IUE and related SUNY undergraduate diplomas at the same time when they successfully complete their programs.
These programs executed by İzmir University of Economics and State University of New York are based on the concept of completing the first and the third years of education in İzmir University of Economics Balçova Campus and the second and the fourth years in SUNY – Fredonia Campus. The graduates of the program will receive two separate diplomas from IUE and SUNY – Fredonia.
