The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany is pleased to announce its selection of 22 undergraduate students from 15 academic institutions in the U.S., Canada and Russia including 14 New York state residents for participation in its prestigious 2007 Summer Internship Program.
CNSE Selects 22 Students for Summer Internship Program
Albany, NY | Posted on May 24th, 2007
Chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants, the students have compiled an average GPA of 3.50 and have backgrounds in the physical, chemical and biological sciences and engineering. They belong to colleges and universities from across the country, including the University of Maryland, Tulane University, University of Texas at Austin, Cornell University, George Washington University, and several State University of New York ("SUNY") schools, including Albany, Binghamton, Geneseo, New Paltz and SUNY IT. They also join from international institutions such as the University of Waterloo in Canada and St. Petersburg State Polytechnical Institute in Russia.
The program, which provides hands-on experience to qualified undergraduate students who wish to pursue careers in nanosciences, nanoengineering and the nanotechnology industry, runs from June 4 through August 10 at CNSE, ranked by Small Times magazine as the nation's number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology.
Susan Herbst, Provost and Officer in Charge at the University at Albany, said, "It is a distinct pleasure to welcome these outstanding students to the University at Albany, where they have the opportunity to participate in the prestigious Summer Internship Program at our world-class College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. The keen competition for these highly regarded internships among some of the best and brightest young scientific minds from the United States and abroad is testament to CNSE‚s growing recognition as a global leader in education related to nanoscale science and engineering."
"We congratulate the students selected to participate in the UAlbany NanoCollege‚s 2007 Summer Internship Program, for which competition becomes more intense each year," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, vice president and chief administrative officer of CNSE. "We are confident that the students will enjoy a unique and enlightening experience through their engagement with CNSE‚s world-class educational programs, first-rate faculty and unparalleled facilities, as well as the opportunity to network with leading global companies and industry experts at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex."
The 10-week Summer Internship Program offers exposure to CNSE faculty experts and leading industrial researchers through weekly seminars and public presentations of research results. Each intern will be involved with one or more CNSE/industrial-partnered research programs, and work closely with CNSE faculty, staff, post-doctoral researchers and graduate students during the course of their work. The capstone of the internship program is a public poster session showcasing each intern's summer research project.
About The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering
The Albany CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated to research, development, education, and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics. In May 2006, it was ranked as the nation‚s number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology in the Annual College Ranking by Small Times magazine. CNSE‚s Albany NanoTech complex is the most advanced research facility of its kind at any university in the world: a $3.5 billion, 450,000-square-foot complex that attracts corporate partners from around the world and offers students a one-of-a-kind academic experience. The UAlbany NanoCollege houses the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 65,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. Over 1,600 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex, including IBM, AMD, SONY, Toshiba, Qimonda, Honeywell, ASML, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, and Freescale. An expansion currently underway will increase the size of CNSE‚s Albany NanoTech complex to over 750,000 square feet, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 cleanroom space, to house over 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty by the end of 2008.
