Community College Faculty Tour NY CREATES’ Albany NanoTech Complex, Learn About Student Career Opportunities

The New York Center for Research, Economic Advancement, Technology, Engineering and Science (NY CREATES) and its Northeast Advanced Technological Education Center (NEATEC) hosted 11 faculty from regional community colleges supporting New York’s chip manufacturing workforce and a Central New York high school teacher for a day-long Integrated Circuit (IC) Manufacturing Workshop on March 1, 2024. Attendees took part in a cleanroom tour and learned about New York State’s growing semiconductor-focused career opportunities.

As part of the day, the faculty cohort also received a tour of the sub-fab, the area underneath the cleanroom that supports cutting-edge chip development, and visited an on-site cleanroom training center to learn more about IC fabrication and related careers.

A key joint NY CREATES and SUNY program, the Northeast Advanced Technological Education Center (NEATEC) is an organization funded by the National Science Foundation and focused on developing workforce training programs, serving as a critical, sustainable resource to build and maintain a skilled technical workforce for the semiconductor and nanotechnology industries throughout New York and Western New England.
