Home > Press > CNSE Welcomes Largest Class of Undergraduate Students for Prestigious Summer Internship Program: New York residents comprise over 75 percent of 38 students selected for highly competitive program
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany today welcomed 38 undergraduate students - including 30 New York state residents who hail from the Capital Region, Hudson Valley, Finger Lakes, Long Island, and New York City - as part of the largest class ever to participate in its prestigious Summer Internship Program.
Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, CNSE Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Consistent with Governor Andrew Cuomo's unparalleled drive to build a world-class workforce in support of New York's burgeoning nanotechnology sector, the UAlbany NanoCollege is pleased to welcome a majority of Empire State residents as part of its largest-ever Summer Internship Program. Using an interactive, hands-on approach to nanoscale education and research, we look forward to unlocking the potential of these up-and-coming scientists and developing a new generation of top-flight innovators that are critical to fuel today's nanotechnology-driven society."
Chosen from a highly competitive pool of nearly 200 applicants, the students represent a variety of academic backgrounds and come from higher education institutions that include a number of SUNY schools - Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, Geneseo, Plattsburgh and Stony Brook - along with Boston University, Boston College, Cornell University, Clarkson University, Dartmouth College, Hamilton College, the University of Maryland, Siena College, and Vassar College, among others.
Beginning today and running through August 10, the CNSE Summer Internship Program will provide undergraduate students with cutting-edge nanotechnology education and experience, as students engage in hands-on research that will help prepare them for growing opportunities in nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics.
Each student will be mentored by a CNSE faculty member or researcher from one of CNSE's global corporate partners. Students will attend seminars and share their research findings during public presentations, including the capstone public poster presentation that highlights each individual research project. Research topics include the development of a nano-based cancer diagnostic tool, monitoring the performance of thin film solar cell modules in real-time, and the automation of a micro-printing device for live cell patterning, among many others.
A complete list of students participating in the 2012 CNSE Summer Internship Program, and further information, is available at www.cnse.albany.edu/PioneeringAcademics/UndergraduatePrograms/2012CNSESummerInternshipProgram.aspx.
About UAlbany NanoCollege
The UAlbany CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated to education, research, development and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience and nanoeconomics. With more than $14 billion in high-tech investments, CNSE represents the world’s most advanced university-driven research enterprise, offering students a one-of-a-kind academic experience and providing over 300 corporate partners with access to an unmatched ecosystem for leading-edge R&D and commercialization of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology innovations. CNSE’s footprint spans upstate New York, including its Albany NanoTech Complex, an 800,000-square-foot megaplex with the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 85,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,700 scientists, researchers, engineers, students and faculty work here, from companies including IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, SEMATECH, Samsung, TSMC, Toshiba, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, ASML and Novellus Systems. An expansion now underway, part of which will house the world’s first Global 450mm Consortium, will add nearly 500,000 square feet of next-generation infrastructure, an additional 50,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms, and more than 1,000 scientists, researchers and engineers from CNSE and global corporations. In addition, CNSE’s Solar Energy Development Center in Halfmoon provides a prototyping and demonstration line for next-generation CIGS thin-film solar cells. CNSE’s Smart Systems Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Rochester offers state-of-the-art capabilities for MEMS fabrication and packaging. CNSE also co-founded and manages operations at the Computer Chip Commercialization Center at SUNYIT in Utica and is a co-founder of the Nanotechnology Innovation and Commercialization Excelerator in Syracuse.
