TROY, N.Y. – Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have come up with a way to manipulate tungsten diselenide (WSe2) —a promising two-dimensional material—to further unlock its potential to enable faster, more efficient computing, and even quantum information processing and storage. Their findings were published today in Nature Communications.

According to a recent study done by HeyTutor, data from the U.S. Cenus Bureau and the National Center for Education Statistics was used to determine which college majors weild the highest wages. Chemical Engineering falls at the number 1 slot with a median early career wage of $68,000 and a mid-career wage of $103,000. Read the full story at HeyTutor
