The newly created SUNY Polytechnic Institute (or SUNY POLY), which merged the SUNY Institute of Technology in Marcy with the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in Albany, is poised to play a tremendous role in cultivating a strong STEM-proficient workforce in the Mohawk Valley and beyond. As the Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C) is expected to open on the Marcy campus at the end of 2014, this will bring hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of research, development, and commercialization activity that will foster nanotechnology’s growth in the Mohawk Valley. Currently on the Marcy campus, programs such as Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology, and Applied Mathematics can prepare students from careers in nanotechnology and other STEM-related fields. Master’s level degrees in Advanced Technology, Computer and Information Science, and Network and Computer Security further prepare local talent for careers in STEM fields. At SUNY Polytechnic Institute's Albany campus, and soon at the Marcy campus, Doctoral degrees are offered in nanoscale science and nanoscale engineering, which will ready students for the highest level of research and development in the field of nanotechnology in the Mohawk Valley and across New York State.
