Basically, there are three choices which means you can choose from Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, or AMS (Advanced Math and Statistics) for an added minor. For further inquiries about minoring, please email the Coordinator of the Department.
The Department of Technology and Society (DTS) is one of eight departments in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University. DTS applies concepts and tools drawn from natural sciences, engineering, and social sciences to examine and enhance the relationship between technology and our society, both regionally and globally. These concepts include systems theory, methods and tools for decision making, and science-technology-society (STS) frameworks. In step with the SUNY 2020 initiative to scale the intellectual capacity of the academic community, DTS is deepening its points of focus to center on energy-environmental systems, and engineering & technology workforce policy. DTS at SUNY Korea has two other specializations that it has pioneered: Information Technology for Sustainable Development (ICT4SD) and Technological Management in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
The major prepares students for careers in government, industry, or education – in positions such as quality control specialist, systems or environmental analyst, technical sales representative, or technology trainer/educator – in short, all professions and business ventures that are dependent on technological applications and implementation and in which project management is key to success. Students are also prepared for advanced study in such areas as business, law, education, policy analysis, and industrial or environmental management.
It is not necessarily a must, but TSM students are to satisfy TSM natural science requirements by taking one of the following sequence: PHY 131(Classical Physics 1) and PHY 133 (Classical Physics1 Laboratory) together, following this, PHY 132(Classical Physics 2) and PHY 134 (Classical Physics 2 Laboratory) together. To fulfill natural science requirements, you can take BIO 201 Principles of Biology: Organisms to Ecosystems and one of the following: Geo 101 Environmental Geology, MAR 104 Oceanography, ATM 102 Weather and Climate, ENS 101 prospects for Planet Earth.
No, students who will finish this program offered by the Department of Technology and Society will not become engineers. Should your plans be becoming an Engineer of some kind, you need to specialize in your intended Engineering major.
The Undergraduate Transfer Office maintains and publishes a list of courses from other institutions that are deemed equivalent to Stony Brook courses. Transfer students must fill out the appropriate forms at the Undergraduate Transfer Office in order for their transfer credits appear in their official record. For courses that are not on the list, students should fill out a transfer credit evaluation form in CEAS Undergraduate Student Office. The form will be sent out for transfer credit evaluation to the department that a potentially equivalently course is offered.
You can take courses from other departments to fulfill the specialization requirement of TSM. You will have to take a cluster of seven related courses, totaling at least 21 credits, in one area of natural science, engineering, applied science, or environmental studies from a single department or program. At least three courses, totaling at least nine credits, must be at the 300 or 400 level, or equivalent as approved by the undergraduate program director/advisor.
If a student from another department wants to transfer to DTS, they will be required to complete Major and Minor entry requirements as follows: Major: completed AMS 161 and the second course in a natural science sequence, or their equivalents ; earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.50; and completed course evaluations for all transferred courses that are to be used to meet requirements of the major. Minor: at any time during the academic year by contacting the coordinator of our department via email.
If an applicant does not have a sufficient level of English, they cannot matriculate as a regular student until they do. We help applicants get that English skill. To get accepted as a regular student, applicants should take certain number of the English Language courses offered by IEC (Intensive English Center) depending on the result of Placement Examination.
SUNY (abbreviation of 'State University of New York') is a wide network system of tax supported New York State Universities. Stony Brook University (SUNY - Stony Brook) is one of the Universities in this New York system. "SUNY Korea" or SUNY Korea LLC is the wider group-campus in South Korea that manages all or any branches of the New York SUNY system that want to establish themselves in Korea as well. Stony Brook University came first to SUNY Korea. Next came the New York City-based Fashion Institute of Technology (SUNY - FIT). In the future, more branches of the SUNY system want to come to SUNY Korea as well.
