SIUE-ITU Dual Diploma Program
The SIUE-ITU Dual Diploma Program, a collaborative effort between
SIUE and Istanbul Technical University (ITU), offers you the
opportunity to earn two bachelors of science in industrial
engineering, one from each university. You can choose to extend your
studies by one semester to pursue a bachelor of science in
manufacturing engineering. You will spend your freshman and junior
years at ITU, and study at SIUE your sophomore and senior years.
The opportunity to spend two years studying in the United States is a chance to gain a competitive advantage in the job market. In today's global economy, students who have international exposure have a significant advantage in terms of educational and life experience.
This one-of-a-kind program does more than offer you a chance to earn dual diplomas; it gives you a chance to experience a different culture and learn how things function in other countries. You will have the chance to improve everyday skills, such as language, know-how and social skills.
One year of English as a second language prepatory education is required. Students with adequate English language skills or who scored 550 or higher in TOEFL are exempt.
Eray Ozturk from Bursa graduated from the SIUE-ITU Dual Diploma Program in May 2012. He can tell you more about this program. video:
The engineering education I received through the Dual Diploma Program between ITU and SIUE was a very valuable experience. It leveraged my analytical and problem-solving skills while rewarding me with intellectual curiosity. It also made me see the importance of soft skills, and gave me the chance to work on them. The international exposure we had both in and out of the classroom is another strong aspect of the program that is very beneficial in today's world. I highly recommend this program to those who want to study Industrial Engineering.
Duygu Sagiroglu, 2011 graduate
if you want to have the most amazing memories, the best education in life, the best friends and teachers; you are at the right place. I made the best decision in my life by choosing this program 5 years ago. In this program, you will have friends from all over the world, lots of fun, a lot of experiences and a really good career when you graduate.

Cost of Study at SIUESIUE values the partnership we built with Istanbul technical University through the Dual Diploma Program in Industrial Engineering. As a result, the Board of Trustees at Southern Illinois University approved a reduced special tuition rate for the Dual Diploma students. SIUE applies 2.5 times the in-state tuition rate to all out-of-state and international students. However, the Dual Diploma students pay a reduced tuition rate of 1.8 times the in-state rate as part of the memorandum of understanding signed with Istanbul Technical University, resulting in significant savings in terms of cost of study at SIUE.
The following table summarizes the per semester cost of study for 2nd and 4th year for those Dual Diploma students starting their freshman year at Istanbul technical University in Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 Academic Year. The prospective students considering our program should use this table as a reference information for the following years. Therefore, the table should be taken as the APPROXIMATE cost of study for those students who are interested in the program. The exact cost of study at SIUE will depend on the Board of Trustees approved tuition and Fee rates when a dual diploma student starts his/her freshman year at ITU.

Senior Assignment ProjectAnother great advantage of SIUE is the nationally recognized senior assignment project. The Senior Assignment is the culminating undergraduate experience designed by faculty in each department to integrate general education capabilities along with competencies of the major area of study.
The Association of American Colleges and Universities has heralded SIUE's Senior Assignment Program as a national model in the effectiveness of academic programs offered. U.S.News & World Report has listed SIUE in the senior capstone experience category, among such universities as Yale, Harvard, MIT and Princeton, for its comprehensive program measuring the competency of graduating seniors.
