Our annual report can only skim the surface of CWRU’s pioneering efforts around the globe. We have done our best to provide a better understanding of that work by including a sampling of international accomplishments from across campus. We invite you to read articles from each school and the College (pages 10-17) highlighting faculty, staff and students involved in education, research and service on all seven continents, including Antarctica (page 11). We invite you to review our internationalization efforts and join with us as We Bridge CWRU and the World.

International Dual PhD Program Established Between CWRU and Brazil


Building upon an ongoing university-wide academic collaborative agreement, which made CWRU a primary destination for undergraduate and graduate students from premier Brazilian universities, two new dual PhD programs have been established between CWRU and the Coordenação de Aperfeicoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES), the agency that oversees higher education within the Brazilian Ministry of Education. The formal agreement, signed in December 2014, is the result of three years of collaborative course and program articulations and visits between CAPES and CWRU to solidify the relationship.

João Maia, Associate Professor of Macromolecular Science & Engineering, spearheaded the prestigious program. “This program is designed to provide the best possible academic training,” Maia explains, “as the students will be receiving degrees at the best universities in their respective disciplines.”

Brazilian students will be able to spend time, both in Brazil and at CWRU, studying and researching. At the end of their studies, the students will receive PhDs in Macromolecular Science and Engineering and Biomedical Engineering from CWRU and in similar areas from their home institutions.

The two programs, in the areas of Polymer and Colloid Science and Engineering and Biomedical Engineering, are scheduled to begin Fall 2015 and Fall 2016, respectively, and should result in up to 160 PhD students sponsored by CAPES obtaining their degrees from CWRU over the next seven years. CAPES has expressed interest in using this initial dual PhD as a template for future programs in other disciplines.
