UAlbany NanoCollege Selects Students for Prestigious Summer Internship Program

Albany, NY | Posted on June 2nd, 2008

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany is pleased to announce the selection of 25 undergraduate students from the United States, Canada and Mexico - including 17 who are New York State residents - for participation in its prestigious Summer Internship Program.

Chosen from among a highly competitive pool of more than 80 applicants, the students have compiled an average GPA of 3.50 and have academic backgrounds in the physical, chemical, biological or computer sciences, mathematics or engineering. Collectively, they attend nine colleges and universities: the University at Albany, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Cornell University, Skidmore College, Hartwick College, SUNY Oneonta, Western New England College, the University of Waterloo and Fundacion Universidad de las Americas.

CNSE's Summer Internship Program provides hands-on research experience to qualified undergraduate students who wish to pursue careers in nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience and the nanotechnology industry. The program begins today and runs through August 8 at the UAlbany NanoCollege, ranked by Small Times magazine as the world's number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology.

"The students who were selected for the UAlbany NanoCollege's Summer Internship Program represent some of the best and brightest young scientific minds in the world," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of CNSE. "I congratulate them on being chosen to participate in a program that will truly provide a world-class experience, through pioneering education, cutting-edge research, and unique interactions with the growing number of leading global nanoelectronics companies working at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex."

Each intern will work with one or more CNSE/industrial-partnered research programs, and interact closely with CNSE faculty, staff, post-doctoral researchers and graduate students. The program also offers exposure to industrial experts through weekly seminars and public presentation of research results. The capstone of the internship program is a public poster presentation showcasing each intern's summer research project.

A list of participating students and their undergraduate colleges, along with faculty mentors and research topics, is available at cnse.albany.edu/academic_programs/internships.html.

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.
