Indo-US Collaboration - Plastic Engineering - PlastIndia International University, Gujarat

WisBusiness.com: UW-Madison: For plastics knowledge, India looks to UW-Madison engineers

MADISON - One of the oldest and most respected polymer engineering research and educational programs in the United States is contributing its expertise to a new plastics university in India.

Representatives of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Polymer Engineering Center signed a memorandum of understanding in Dehli, India, this month with the PlastIndia Foundation and the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.

The three entities will collaborate to develop curriculum for the PlastIndia International University, an institution dedicated to plastics research, higher education, management and entrepreneurship. Expected to break ground later in 2012 and open within three years, the new university will be located in Vapi in the state of Gujarat, one of the largest plastics manufacturing regions in India. Both Massachusetts and UW-Madison are well positioned to contribute to the effort, says plastics expert Tim Osswald, the Kuo K. and Cindy F. Wang professor of mechanical engineering at UW-Madison.
