CNSE http://wamc.org en CNSE + SUNYIT = SUNY INSET http://wamc.org/post/cnse-sunyit-suny-inset <p>The Albany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is positioned to merge with the SUNY Institute of Technology in Utica. A new college would be created.&nbsp; A draft summary of the merger plan, obtained by the <em>Utica Observer-Dispatch</em>, says the new school would be called SUNY Institute for Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology, or SUNY INSET.&nbsp; Expectations are the merged institution's Marcy facility would provide the Mohawk Valley with the strong, technologically trained workforce it needs to attract more high-end technology companies.</p> Tue, 18 Mar 2014 22:30:00 +0000 Dave Lucas 86134 at http://wamc.org CNSE + SUNYIT = SUNY INSET Albany NanoCollege Expands Photoresist Research http://wamc.org/post/albany-nanocollege-expands-photoresist-research <p></p><p>Albany's Nano-college is partnering with a huge petrochemical company in a research and development project to upgrade computer chip technology.</p> Mon, 24 Feb 2014 21:25:26 +0000 Dave Lucas 84527 at http://wamc.org Albany NanoCollege Expands Photoresist Research Chipfab Plant For Marcy http://wamc.org/post/chipfab-plant-marcy <p>The Albany NanoCollege is branching out westward, stimulating even more growth.<br> Thu, 12 Sep 2013 17:45:20 +0000 Dave Lucas 73472 at http://wamc.org Chipfab Plant For Marcy UAlbany - CNSE Split: A Closer Look http://wamc.org/post/ualbany-cnse-split-closer-look <p>The SUNY Board of Trustees has given the green light to separate the University at Albany and the College of Nanoscale Science And Engineering.
