Mapúa holds investiture for first University president

Home|News|Posted on : January/26/2018 Skip Navigation Links Skip Navigation Links

Mapúa University will hold the investiture of its first president, Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea, on January 29 at the Philippine International Convention Center.

Dr. Vea is Mapúa’s first president since it received the University status grant from the Commission on Higher Education last year.

Upon assumption of office at the turn of the century, Dr. Vea took up the challenge of globalization as the cornerstone of his presidency and enunciated a vision of Mapúa joining the ranks of the best universities in the world.

Dr. Vea graduated as magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1978. He then pursued further studies abroad and obtained an MS degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He subsequently obtained his PhD in engineering from the University of California at Berkeley as a Fulbright-Hays scholar.
