Abstract:
The largest-ever graduating class at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany (UAlbany) is providing a shot in the arm for New York's rapidly expanding nanotechnology industry as they launch careers with leading global high-tech companies in the Empire State.

CNSE graduates bolster NY's nanotechnology workforce through new positions with leading global companies:More than 75 percent of CNSE’s largest-ever graduating class will remain in New York to pursue educational and career opportunities

Albany, NY | Posted on December 5th, 2011

A diverse class of 23 CNSE students - including 13 students from the United States and 10 international students - received degrees in Nanoscale Science and Nanoscale Engineering during UAlbany's winter commencement ceremonies held on Sunday, December 4. The class included 11 students who were awarded Ph.D.'s and 12 students who received Master's degrees, representing each of CNSE's four constellations: Nanoscale Science, Nanoscale Engineering, Nanobioscience and Nanoeconomics.



Altogether, more than 75 percent of CNSE's graduating class will remain in New York state. Graduates have landed engineering and research positions with IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, Tokyo Electron Ltd., SEMATECH, Novellus Systems and CNSE, as well as post-doctoral positions in academia. In addition, several Master's degree graduates have enrolled in CNSE's Ph.D. program.



"On behalf of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, I am delighted to congratulate CNSE's newest graduating class on reaching this important and well-deserved milestone," said CNSE Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros. "The comprehensive, academically rigorous, and cross-disciplinary education and training they have received as part of CNSE's pioneering curricula is ensuring that these exceptional students hit the ground running as leaders in today's high-tech workforce. It is also giving New York a critical advantage in developing the human capital that is essential to catalyzing opportunities for economic growth in the 21st century innovation economy."



"It is a distinct pleasure to recognize the achievements of these talented students, who represent the largest graduating class in CNSE's history," said CNSE Vice President for Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer Robert Geer. "They are to be commended for their outstanding performance in the classroom and their unparalleled research achievements in the laboratory. They couldn't be better-positioned as trailblazers and innovators who will drive next-generation scientific exploration and discovery."



The UAlbany NanoCollege is the world's first to offer comprehensive undergraduate and graduate-level curricula focused on nanotechnology, with the graduate program introduced in 2004 and the undergraduate program in 2010. Utilizing a first-of-its-kind educational paradigm, CNSE's cutting-edge, interdisciplinary, and truly innovative instructional portfolio centered on scholarly excellence taps into CNSE's international academic leadership in nanoscale science and engineering.


CNSE's educational curricula is buoyed by the unmatched intellectual and technological resources of CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, which is the most advanced nanotechnology research enterprise at any university in the world. With more than $12 billion in public and private investments, and the participation of more than 2,700 scientists, researchers, engineers, faculty and students from leading global corporations and top research universities, CNSE offers students a world-class experience working with, and learning from, the top innovative minds in the academic and industrial worlds.
