UAlbany NanoCollege hosts poster presentation for 2012 summer internship program
(Nanowerk News) Thirty-eight undergraduate students who have spent the summer doing nanotechnology research at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany – including 30 New York state residents who hail from the Capital Region, Hudson Valley, Finger Lakes, Long Island, and New York City – showcased their findings August 8 at a public poster presentation that is the capstone of CNSE’s 2012 Summer Internship Program.
Several of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's summer interns talk about the intensive 10-week Summer Internship Program which provides unparalleled hands-on education and experience to qualified undergraduate students who wish to pursue careers in the nanotechnology industry and the cutting-edge fields of nanoscale science, nanoscale engineering, nanobioscience and nanoeconomics.
The pioneering hands-on program gives students a unique opportunity to engage in innovative nanotechnology research projects as a means of supporting careers in nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience and the nanotechnology industry.
The largest class ever to participate in CNSE’s prestigious Summer Internship Program, the students represented a variety of academic backgrounds and came 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.
