In the news: Fraunhofer's diamonds, Engineering's semiconductor research

Fraunhofer's lab-grown diamonds, Engineering's semiconductor curriculum capture TV news spotlight

Nov. 3, 2023

Michigan State University's College of Engineering and longtime partner Fraunhofer USA were highlighted in two feature stories that aired this week on a CBS TV news affiliate station. 

WLNS News 6 covered Monday's press conference announcing the Michigan Economic Development Corporation's support to enhance the college's curriculum for semiconductors. 

The Lansing-based station then followed up Tuesday with an in-depth look at Fraunhofer's work on campus to create chips made of lab-grown diamonds that can handle information faster than silicon-based chips.
