UAlbany NanoCollege Selects Students for Prestigious Summer Internship Program

Albany, NY | Posted on June 1st, 2009

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany is pleased to announce that 14 New York State residents are among 17 undergraduate students selected for participation in its prestigious Summer Internship Program.

Chosen from among a highly competitive pool of more than 120 applicants, the students have academic backgrounds in the physical, chemical, biological or computer sciences, mathematics or engineering. Collectively, they attend 11 colleges and universities, including the University at Albany, Binghamton University, Cornell University, Drexel University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Villanova University, Fordham University, University of Central Florida, Stevens Institute of Technology, and Universidad de las Americas Puebla.

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 7 at the UAlbany NanoCollege.

"We are again delighted to have selected some of the world's finest young scientific minds for the UAlbany NanoCollege's Summer Internship Program," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE. "Through their participation in this world-class program, which combines pioneering education with cutting-edge research, these students will truly have a unique window into the exciting 21st century careers being enabled by nanotechnology."

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 www.cnse.albany.edu/academic_programs/internships.html.
