NanoCareer Day is designed to help prepare students for a growing number of nanotechnology-related careers in the Capital Region and New York State, while also addressing the critical national need to stimulate students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

NanoCareer Day included presentations by CNSE faculty on the emerging science of nanotechnology and the career opportunities it offers; hands-on demonstrations explaining the applications of nanotechnology research and development; and tours of SUNY Poly’s world-class NanoTech Complex, a $20 billion megaplex that is the most advanced in the academic world.
