THE COOPERATIVE TRAINING PROGRAM BETWEEN THE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY, VIETNAM AND THE UNIVERSITY OF SUNY BINGHAMTON, STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK – BINGHAMTON (http://www2.binghamton.edu/).
Binghamton University opened its doors as Triple Cities College in 1946 to serve the needs of local veterans returning from service in World War II. Originally located in Endicott, five miles west of the present campus, the fledgling school was a branch of Syracuse University. Four years later, when the college was incorporated into the State University of New York, it was renamed Harpur College in honor of Robert Harpur, a Colonial teacher, patriot and pioneer, who devoted his later years to settling the area around Binghamton.
Until 1953, Harpur College was one of only two public liberal arts colleges in the state. In 1961, the campus was moved across the Susquehanna River to Vestal. Growing enrollment and a reputation for excellence soon led to the selection of Harpur College as one of four doctorate-granting University Centers in the state system. In 1965, the campus was formally designated the State University of New York at Binghamton. Binghamton University was adopted as our informal name in 1992.
In a little over 60 years, Binghamton University has built a reputation as a world-class institution that combines a broadly interdisciplinary, international education with one of the most vibrant research programs in the nation.
Binghamton is proud to be a “premier public university,” which means we challenge our students academically, not financially. The result is a unique, best-of-both-worlds college experience.
The Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) was established on July 1, 1994. It was a result of the merger of the erstwhile Systems Science Department with the Industrial Engineering segment of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department. Brought together to leverage potential areas of commonality, the new department has grown significantly since its inception. Today, the department has grown from seven faculty members and one staff member in 1994 to 14 faculty members including several research professors, and a number of research staff. At present, the SSIE department includes over 80 undergraduates (cumulatively from the sophomore to the senior year), and about 170 graduate students, including 60 doctoral students.
The Cooperative Training program in Industrial System Engineering between International University, Vietnam and Binghamton University SUNY is a 2+2 degree program. It allows students to spend the first two years studying at the International University and the other two years at the Binghamton University, State University of New York – Binghamton. On completion of the course, students are granted the Bachelor degree by the State University of New York – Binghamton (SUNY). In addition, the education medium, including teaching and learning have met the requirements and complied with the standards set by the State University of New York – Binghamton (SUNY).
