Nano Utica is a $1.5 billion public-private initiative by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to bring a technology-based economic transformation to the Mohawk Valley. Nano Utica is founded on a partnership between Advanced Nanotechnology Solutions Incorporated (ANS), SEMATECH, Atotech, and SEMATECH; and CNSE partners, including IBM, Lam Research and Tokyo Electron.
This project is transforming the Mohawk Valley, infusing young minds, advancing technology and international investment.
On October 10, 2013, the Governor made the following announcement,
“Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that six leading global technology companies will invest $1.5 billion to create Nano Utica, the states second major hub of nanotechnology research and development. The public-private partnership, to be spearheaded by the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (SUNY CNSE) and the SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT), will create more than 1,000 new high-tech jobs on the campus of SUNYIT in Marcy.”
Nano Utica is revolutionary for our region and has brought unprecedented excitement and optimism. Hundreds of individuals have the opportunity for high paying quality jobs including cleanroom technician positions; research, business operations, systems management, clerical and administrative staff; maintenance and support workers; and a variety of other positions.
Through the unparalleled cooperation and teamwork of Congressman Richard Hanna, County Executive Tony Picente, Senator Joe Griffo, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, MV EDGE President Steve DiMeo, and the City, Nano Utica is a reality.
The construction of the Quad-C Technology complex on the SUNY Polytechnic Institute campus is underway and due to be completed by the summer of 2015. This state of the art facility leverages multi-faceted commercial and academic partnerships proven successful at the College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering in Albany, NY.
The building will be 253,000 square feet, consisting of integrated offices and laboratories, an atrium lobby, large multipurpose conference rooms, 84-seat auditorium with global access capabilities and smart lecture systems and a 56,000 square foot ballroom style two-level stacked clean room (unique in the US, with class 100 on the first level and class 1000 on the second level).
The newly merged SUNY College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE)/ SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNY IT) is now the SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly), New York’s globally recognized, high-tech educational ecosystem.
On September 9, 2014,
“The State University of New York Board of Trustees today voted unanimously to approve SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly) as the new name for the recently merged SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE)/SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT). The SUNY Poly name unifies the Albany and Utica/Rome campuses and reflects the expanded academic programs and opportunities available to students.”
SUNY Poly offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience and nanoengineering, as well as cutting-edge nanobioscience and nanoeconomics programs at its Albany campus, and degrees in technology, professional studies, and the arts and sciences at its Utica/Rome campus. As the world’s most advanced, university-driven research enterprise, SUNY Poly boasts more than $20 billion in high-tech investments, over 300 corporate partners, and maintains a statewide footprint.
