UAlbany NanoCollege Announces World's First Graduate in NanoEconomics

Albany, NY | Posted on May 27th, 2008

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany announced today that a doctoral degree has been awarded to a CNSE student who is the world's first graduate in Nanoeconomics.

Dr. Erez Golan received his Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science and Engineering, with a concentration in Nanoeconomics. He came to CNSE from Ben-Gurion University in Israel, where he obtained a B.Sc. in physics and material engineering, a M.Sc. in material engineering, and an MBA. Dr. Golan is currently working as a technology project manager at the Applied Materials ("AMAT") Process Diagnostic and Control ("PDC") Division, part of the AMAT Research & Development ("R&D") Center at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, which is AMAT's only North American R&D facility located outside of its main headquarters in San Jose, California.

"I am privileged not only to have earned a Ph.D. at CNSE, but to have had the opportunity to concentrate in the NanoCollege's unique Nanoeconomics program, which directly corresponds to my interests," said Dr. Golan. "My interactions with the world-class CNSE faculty have helped me to develop critical-thinking skills that will be valuable in my future career. I would like to thank my dissertation chair, Dr. Edward Cupoli, and the members of my dissertation committee, Dr. James Ryan, Dr. Ernest Levine, Mr. Michael Fancher and Dr. Michael Sattinger, for their encouragement and support."

Nanoeconomics is the formulation, study and analysis of the economic and business principles underlying the development and deployment of nanoscale know how, products and systems. In his thesis, Dr. Golan analyzed current and future trends within the nanoelectronics ecosystem, contrasting the economic consequences of maintaining the historical approach to manufacturing with the integration and adoption of novel methods. Ultimately, his research demonstrated that the use of new manufacturing strategies is critical to advancing the nanoelectronics industry's technological and economic roadmap.

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of CNSE, said, "I am delighted to congratulate Dr. Golan on this noteworthy and pioneering achievement, and to acknowledge the leadership of Dr. Cupoli as Head of CNSE's Nanoeconomics constellation. The awarding of the world's first degree with a concentration in Nanoeconomics is testament to the UAlbany NanoCollege's growing global recognition as a worldwide leader in educating students who are breaking new ground in the 21st-century fields of nanoscale research and discovery."

"I am pleased to offer my congratulations to Dr. Golan, whose diverse background in science, engineering and business made him the ideal candidate to study the next-generation field of Nanoeconomics," said Dr. Edward M. Cupoli, Professor and Head of CNSE's Nanoeconomics Constellation. "The critical need to understand and integrate sound business acumen amid the continual push to advance nanoscale technology in research, development and manufacturing makes Nanoeconomics a vital area of study, both today and in the future."

Dr. Golan is one of eight CNSE students who received graduate degrees during the Spring commencement ceremony. Together with 10 students who were awarded degrees in December 2007, the 18 CNSE students who received graduate degrees during the 2007-2008 academic year represent the largest graduating class at CNSE since its first class was admitted in September 2004.

About UAlbany CNSE
The UAlbany 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 2007, it was ranked as the world'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 enterprise of its kind at any university in the world: a $4.2 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. More than 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex, from companies including IBM, AMD, SEMATECH, Toshiba, ASML, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, Vistec Lithography and Freescale. An expansion currently underway will increase the size of CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex to over 800,000 square feet, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanroom space, to house over 2,500 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty by mid-2009.
