Part of the University at Albany, the ever-growing, futuristic complex on Fuller Road (really, it’s only a matter of time before a Hollywood movie is shot there) draws major international players in the nanotech field. Nano, for you non-math majors, refers to 10-9, or 0.000,000,001. That’s small — we’re talking atomic particle small — but it’s going to be a huge part of the next technological revolution. CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated strictly to research, development, education, and deployment in the nanosciences. Under the direction of the brilliant and charismatic Alain Kaloyeros, senior vice president and chief executive officer, it is a prime reason why the area can now truly call itself Tech Valley.
