The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany - State University of New York (SUNY) is a global education, research, development and technology deployment resource dedicated to preparing the next generation of scientists and researchers in nanotechnology.
By leveraging its resources in partnership with business and government, CNSE supports accelerated high technology education and commercialization, and seeks to create jobs and economic growth for nanotechnology-related industries.
CNSE is a unit of the University at Albany, one of the four University Centers of the State University of New York (SUNY).
Since its inception in 2004, CNSE has quickly gained recognition, both on and off campus, as a leader and pioneer in nanotechnology education, research and economic outreach.
"UAlbany is a known leader in nanotechnology" was ranked first among two dozen University descriptors among all four internal groups surveyed in 2007: undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff/administration.
In addition, business and government leaders from the region ranked nanotechnology as UAlbany's greatest strength, followed by research; nanotechnology ranked highest in perception of programs, with 59% rating it "very strong" and 27% "strong"; when asked "What do you know about us?" the number one answer was nanotechnology; and, the group's number one and two perceptions of UAlbany were "economic driver" and "research university," respectively, a direct reflection of the significant impact of CNSE.
