With the launch of an extensive nanotechnology partnership and a series of ongoing campus improvements, SUNYIT is building a unique reputation as an academic innovator—and a college of opportunity for tomorrow’s students. Because of its recent growth and continued dedication to academics, SUNYIT provides students interested in pursuing degrees in technology and professional studies an exceptional value at an affordable cost.
A wide-ranging nanotechnology partnership with the University at Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering will further distinguish SUNYIT as a leader in higher education, industry collaboration, and regional economic development. A technology complex, now in its development phase, will support collaboration between industry researchers, educators and students. The t-shaped, three-story structure of up to 180,000 feet be anchored by the Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C), which will enable collaboration with private nanotechnology companies. Also located in the new complex will be the Center for Advanced Technology (CAT), home to engineering, computer science and other technology-related educational programs that will help build a 21st century workforce and support industry collaboration in the Quad-C. The complex is scheduled for completion in 2013.
Three new buildings were recently completed and opened: a Student Center that caters to student dining and extracurricular recreation interests, a freshman residential complex, and a Field House that hosts athletic and recreational events and large campus functions.
New and recently launched academic programs include: biology, civil engineering, community & behavioral health, electrical & computer engineering, and network & computer security.
