Penn State University says that its project team has been awarded five State grants to help develop new technologies and processes in manufacturing.

One of the projects will focus on the fabrication of Cu-Ni-Si parts by powder metallurgy, according to the University.

The approved projects are part of a fellowship program, which connects graduate and undergraduate students with local manufacturers. Once paired, the students can embark on research projects to develop new technologies and increase innovation.

Other funded projects at Penn State will cover manufacturing ultra-conductors for the next generation efficient electric machines, enabling precision electro-chemical machining (PECM) process analysis for advanced cathode system design, innovation in AI in advanced manufacturing for Pennsylvania, and smart manufacturing and operator intervention systems for injection molding processes.
