CWRU signs academic partnership with Mapua Institute of Technology
Case Western Reserve University has entered into an academic partnership with Mapua Institute of Technology in the Philippines, paving the way for student and faculty exchange programs and joint research projects focused on innovation and entrepreneurship.
Case School of Engineering Associate Dean of Academics Gary Wnek joined Mapua President and Chief Executive Officer Reynaldo B. Vea in the Philippines for a signing ceremony Sept. 27.
The partnership grew out of Wnek’s visit to Mapua in May 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.
This new partnership will focus on integrating those elements into the curriculum at Mapua.
