Philadelphia U. and MAG Establish Composites Institute
The new research institute will be funded in part by $1.1 million from MAG, whose chairman and CEO is Mo I. Meidar, Ph.D., a Philadelphia University alumnus and member of the university’s Board of Trustees. MAG, headquartered in New York, is a leading developer of automation technologies for producing composite structures, as well as one of the largest global suppliers of machine tools and manufacturing automation systems for the durable goods industry.
In addition to the Philadelphia University MAG Composites Institute, the funding will also support a new bachelor’s in engineering program with a concentration in composites, one of the only such programs in the country. The first courses in composites will be offered this fall.
