IUS and ITÜ Strengthen Academic Ties with New Double Diploma Programs: Computer Engineering and Bioengineering

IUS and ITÜ Strengthen Academic Ties

On Friday, January 26, 2024, a delegation from Istanbul Technical University (ITÜ), led by Prof. Dr. İsmail Koyuncu, ITÜ Rector, and accompanied by Prof. Dr. Mustafa Kumral, ITÜ Vice-Rector, Prof. Dr. Şule Itır Satoğlu, ITÜ Vice-Rector, Prof. Dr. Ali Tüfekçi, Director of the İTÜ Turkish Music State Conservatory, along with Mr. Adem Dönmez and Mr. Engin Yıldırım, paid a visit to the International University of Sarajevo (IUS). The delegation received a warm welcome from the IUS Rector, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Yıldırım, and IUS Vice-Rector for General Affairs, Assoc. Prof. Muhammed Yasir Göz.

The purpose of the visit was to define the principles and procedures of the Protocol on the Establishment of an International Undergraduate Joint Program in Computer Engineering and Bioengineering between the two universities. Prior to this protocol, IUS and ITÜ had a Double Diploma Program in four areas of study: Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, Economy, and Electronics and Communication Engineering. The addition of the two new study programs will broaden the options for prospective students interested in Double Diploma Programs at IUS.

These joint study programs combine the best aspects of both partner universities, providing the advantage of studying in both Sarajevo and Istanbul. Upon successful completion of a four-year course of study, graduates are awarded two separate diplomas, one issued by IUS and the other by ITÜ.

We extend an invitation to all ambitious students to seize this opportunity now offered by IUS and enroll in one of the six offered study programs through our established international cooperation.
