"We are so pleased to congratulate the graduating class of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, an extraordinary group that is well on their way to becoming our nation's next generation of scientific and technological leaders, and each of whom represent the power of a world-class SUNY education," said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. "Most of these graduates have chosen to live and work right here in New York State. In many cases, they are beginning their careers with a company they worked alongside of as students, exemplifying our efforts to build a cradle-to-career education pipeline across the SUNY system. SUNY, including CNSE, is working to provide pioneering educational opportunities that prepare our state's workforce for the 21st century knowledge economy, and to support Governor Andrew Cuomo's vision of positioning New York as a global high-tech leader."

"On behalf of the UAlbany NanoCollege, it is a pleasure to salute CNSE's newest graduates, who serve as a true embodiment of Governor Andrew Cuomo's vision and mission to establish New York as a global powerhouse in nanotechnology education, innovation, and economic opportunity," said CNSE Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros. "From the classroom to the cleanroom, these students have demonstrated remarkable success in meeting the rigorous demands of CNSE's one-of-a-kind, cross-disciplinary curricula, leaving them well-positioned for exciting educational and career paths that will ensure the presence of a world-class high-tech workforce in New York."

Seventeen CNSE students will receive degrees during commencement ceremonies to be held on Saturday, May 19. Eleven will be awarded Ph.D.'s and 6 will receive Master's degrees, with bodies of work that cover each of CNSE's four constellations: Nanoscience, Nanoengineering, Nanobioscience and Nanoeconomics.

CNSE graduates have accepted research and engineering positions with a host of global high-tech leaders, including IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, Lam Research and Northrup Grumman, among others. In addition, one student has accepted a post-doc position with the Department of Vascular Surgery at Harvard Medical School, and several Master's degree graduates have enrolled in CNSE's Ph.D. program.

The world's first and only college to offer comprehensive undergraduate and graduate-level curricula focused on nanotechnology, CNSE's graduate program was introduced in 2004 and its undergraduate program in 2010. CNSE's educational curricula is buoyed by the unmatched intellectual and technological resources of CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, the most advanced nanotechnology research enterprise at any university in the world, with more than $14 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.
