Case Study

Case Western Reserve Delegation Visits Alumni, Companies in China

A small delegation from Case Western Reserve University visited alumni and companies in several locations in Asia, including Japan and Taiwan. Those attending from Case Western Reserve included Jeff Duerk, Dean of the Case School of Engineering and Roger French, F. Alex Nason Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and Director of the SDLE Center. The purpose of the trip was to explore opportunities to develop new industry partnerships with companies like Tokusen and the Taiwan High Speed Rail company, while deepening existing partnerships with companies like Kyocera and UL. It was also a good opportunity to touch base with graduates of Case Western Reserve and to give them a direct update on the many exciting activities taking place back in Cleveland. An important area of research that was discussed was the lifetime sciences and degradation of materials led by Professor French. His cross-cutting approach touches many technology spaces such as energy, healthcare, and manufacturing.
