A Peruvian university that Purdue’s College of Technology helped create celebrated its opening in December 2014.
Purdue University's College of Technology has received more than $2 million from the Luis Hochschild Plaut and Rodolfo Beeck Navarro Trust to expand global education partnerships in South America.
A College of Technology partnership with a Peruvian university is expanding from annual exchange trips to the creation of a new engineering curriculum.
In January 2012, the leaders of TECSUP asked the College of Technology to help them create a new university, focused on applied engineering, that would help South American residents complete their five-year engineering degrees. The new University of Engineering and Technology will be known as UTEC.
