CSE’s Gary Wnek takes entrepreneurship education to the Philippines

Gary Wnek, the Case School of Engineering’s associate dean of academics, recently traveled to the Philippines as the first visiting professor under the PhilDev Innovation Development through Entrepreneurship Acceleration (IDEA) program.
 
The program brings U.S.-based faculty experts in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering and math—to work with partner institutions in the Philippines to help promote innovation and entrepreneurship. 

Wnek spent a week in May at Mapua Institute of Technology in Quiapo, Manila, where he met with faculty and students to discuss strategies for incorporating entrepreneurship into the school’s undergraduate and graduate science and engineering programs.
