One of Dayton's largest universities has secured federal funding that will accelerate research in advanced manufacturing.

The award is part of a competitive, merit-based program that provides cost-shared funding for projects that research new technologies to address critical national needs.

WSU will use the funding to help its graduate students and faculty better understand surface formation across alloy systems in laser powder bed fusion.
