SUNY at Albany's Nanoengineering Ph.D. Program

  1. Mar 1, 2008 #1
    Hello everyone.
    Last night I received an offer of acceptance to University at Albany's Nanoengineering/Nanoscience Ph.D. progam. Has anyone studied/visited or know anyone there? I am wondering what you think about the quality of research, education, faculty, and facilities? There aren't many independent info on this program except Small Times Ranking (http://www.smalltimes.com/articles/stm_print_screen.cfm?ARTICLE_ID=292542).

    I'd like to visit there to figure them out myself before deciding but I require a US visa which I won't be able to get before the last date to accept their assistantship offer (March 5).

    Thank you!

    They are expanding a lot. They have, I think, 3 buildings just for the nanotech program and building a 4th. From what I hear, it's a very good program, Much better than anything else offered by SUNY Albany.

    I go to SUNY Albany (for math), and I only hear good things about the nanotech program.

    Here's an added bonus: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI, my alma mater) is nearby, and it is a top-notch engineering school. Both schools are members of the Hudson-Mohawk Consortium, which allows cross registration with other schools in "the club". That means that, as a UAlbany student, you can take RPI courses at the SUNY tuition rate, provided it is a course not offered at UAlbany.

    SUNY Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is getting a lot of support.

    I hear good things about it. According to the site -
    So one should have a good experience there.
