Exceptional Undergraduates Selected for Prestigious Summer Internship Program at UAlbany NanoCollege

Albany, NY | Posted on June 2nd, 2010

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany announced today that 22 exceptional undergraduate students - including 20 New York State residents - have been selected to participate in its prestigious Summer Internship Program.

The student interns, who were chosen from among a highly competitive pool of more than 120 applicants, have academic backgrounds in the physical, chemical, biological or computer sciences, as well as mathematics and engineering. Collectively, they attend 16 colleges and universities, including the University at Albany, Binghamton University, Clarkson University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, SUNY Geneseo, Lehigh University, McGill University, University of Michigan, Mohawk Valley Community College, University of New Haven, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology, Skidmore College, Stony Brook University, and Universidad de las Americas Puebla.

CNSE's Summer Internship Program, which begins today and runs through August 11, provides hands-on research experience to qualified undergraduate students who wish to pursue careers in nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience and the nanotechnology industry.

"Once again this year, we are thrilled to welcome an outstanding group of young scientists to participate in the Summer Internship Program at the UAlbany NanoCollege," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE. "Over the next 10 weeks, these students will find themselves immersed in innovative, hands-on research, working alongside experts from academia and industry while utilizing the most advanced high-tech facilities in the academic world. It is a truly unique and exciting opportunity for the students to both understand and demonstrate the promise and potential of nanotechnology."

Each intern will work with one or more research programs conducted by CNSE and its global corporate partners, which represent many of the world's leading technology companies. Students will interact closely with CNSE faculty, staff, post-doctoral researchers and graduate students, and with industrial experts through weekly seminars. A public poster presentation showcasing each intern's summer research project serves as the capstone of the Summer Internship Program.
