Minnesota Semiconductor Manufacturing Consortium Launches
The Minnesota Nano Center is one of several prominent stakeholders participating in the Minnesota Semiconductor Manufacturing Consortium, recently launched by the University's Technological Leadership Institute (TLI). It is a groundbreaking initiative aimed at upskilling Minnesota's technical workforce for careers in semiconductor manufacturing. Besides the Nano Center stakeholders include Honeywell, Raytheon Technologies' Collins Aerospace, and Polar Semiconductor. With a significant contribution from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), the consortium will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the semiconductor industry in the region.
The Minnesota Nano Center is led by ECE's Russell J. Penrose Professor in Nanotechnology Steven Koester.
