Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that six leading global technology companies will invest $1.5 billion to create ‘Nano Utica,’ the state’s 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.
The consortium of leading global technology companies that will create Nano Utica are led by Advanced Nanotechnology Solutions Incorporated (ANSI), SEMATECH, Atotech, and SEMATECH and CNSE partner companies, including IBM, Lam Research and Tokyo Electron. The consortium will be headquartered at the CNSE-SUNYIT Computer Chip Commercialization Center, and will build on the research and development programs currently being conducted by ANSI, SEMATECH, and their private industry partners at the SUNY CNSE campus in Albany, further cementing New York’s international recognition as the preeminent hub for 21st century nanotechnology innovation, education, and economic development.
Every year, nearly a million visitors walk through the gates to experience great food, entertainment, and learn about the Empire State at The Great New York State Fair. For the third year, SUNY commanded a strong presence in order to showcase to New Yorkers the wide-ranging impact that SUNY has on the state. To help build SUNY pride, SUNYIT‘s mascot, Walter the Wildcat, joined over a dozen SUNY mascots in making an appearance to greet students and alumni and welcome prospective fans.

Seven SUNY campuses’ return on investment (“ROI”) have been named among the top in the nation, according to ranking agency PayScale in its 2013 College Return on Investment (ROI) Report. The seven SUNY institutions, among the top 400 ranked, are some of the two dozen SUNY campuses named in the list. SUNY Maritime College ranks fifth over all, beating out every Ivy League school and both Maritime College and Stony Brook University have projected returns on investment of over a million dollars.
The results are based on an analysis of PayScale‘s 40 million career profiles; the report examines the return on investment at 1060 public and private colleges and universities in the United States and then ranks them in a comparison to investing money in other ways, like interest with a bank.
The seven SUNY campuses that are among the top 400, in reference to in-state tuition, are:
