Home > Press > CNSE Graduates to Pursue Educational and Career Opportunities in New York: Three-quarters of CNSE students receiving degrees during winter commencement ceremonies this weekend will further their education and careers in the Empire State

Abstract:
Further supporting Governor Andrew Cuomo's vision for building a world-class nanotechnology workforce to enable high-tech economic growth across New York, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany (UAlbany) today announced that three-quarters of its newest graduating class will pursue educational and career opportunities in the Empire State following commencement ceremonies this weekend.

CNSE Graduates to Pursue Educational and Career Opportunities in New York: Three-quarters of CNSE students receiving degrees during winter commencement ceremonies this weekend will further their education and careers in the Empire State

Albany, NY | Posted on December 13th, 2012

"In accordance with Governor Andrew Cuomo's pioneering strategy for building the world's most advanced nanotechnology-driven economy, and on behalf of the UAlbany NanoCollege, I am delighted to congratulate our latest graduates," said CNSE Vice President for Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer Robert Geer. "This truly represents the best of both worlds: our graduating students have the opportunity to embark on exciting career opportunities here in New York, while the state is able to deploy a new generation of highly trained scientists and innovators, ensuring the continued development of a first-rate workforce to support the Governor's innovation-driven economic model."

Twelve CNSE students, including nine from the United States and three international students, will receive graduate degrees in Nanoscale Science and Nanoscale Engineering during UAlbany's winter commencement exercises on Sunday, December 16. Eight students will be awarded Ph.D.'s and four will receive Master's degrees.

Among the students who have accepted career opportunities with industry, positions include advisory scientist/engineer with IBM; senior product engineer and senior engineer for packaging technology integration at GLOBALFOUNDRIES; failure analysis engineer with Intel; and associate mathematician at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, NY. In addition, one student received a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, and another has enrolled in CNSE's Ph.D. program.

With nearly 300 students in its pioneering undergraduate and graduate degree programs, CNSE is the world's first and only college dedicated to nanotechnology innovation and know-how. As part of the first-of-its-kind academic experience at CNSE, students have access to an accomplished faculty with backgrounds in both academia and industry; state-of-the-art high-tech tooling and infrastructure that are unparalleled in the academic setting; and a complement of more than 300 global corporate partners, many of which are located on site at CNSE's $14 billion Albany NanoTech Complex.
