Case Western Reserve University

University in Ohio, United States

Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) was established in 1967 through the merger of Western Reserve University (founded in 1826) and Case Institute of Technology (founded in 1880).

CWRU is organized into eight schools, including the School of Medicine, the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, the School of Dental Medicine, the School of Law, and the Weatherhead School of Management. The university is perhaps best known for its Case School of Engineering, and especially for the latter’s Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering.

CWRU’s department of Online Learning offers four master’s degrees in engineering, one in social administration, and several Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

CWRU is associated with no fewer than 18 Nobel laureates:
