Per the article, manufacturing “is a cool field of study, and U.S. universities are attracting students to their programs the old-fashioned way: by offering compelling coursework and research opportunities that lead to real-world jobs.” ISD offers these opportunities through both its graduate and professional programs.

By offering degrees in Global Automotive and Manufacturing Engineering and Manufacturing, ISD prepares graduate students to excel in industry work. Offered on-campus and fully online, both programs allow students to earn top-ranked engineering degrees from the University of Michigan while still working full-time. Lifelong learners who are not degree-seeking can join the over 10,000 professionals who have participated in the Lean Manufacturing Certificate programIndustryWeek highlights this program, which trains participants to eliminate waste and drive lean initiatives in their manufacturing processes.

ISD’s faculty members work diligently to create high-level course content. Thanks to their combined years of fieldwork and research, students pursuing manufacturing education have access to a wealth of knowledge at one of the nation’s top manufacturing schools.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
