Obama to speak at HVCC Monday


Recommended Posts

The nano initiative is a perfect example of New York politics. Instead of building up UAlbany (or any flagship/research campus) with a program that clearly is successful, the politicans give kick backs all over the state. HVCC gets a program. SUNY IT gets a program etc, etc. The nano program has been a huge success but it kills me to see this political bartering among regions and among politicans. New York needs to play their 'A' game or risk losing in the end. Georgia Tech and other top tier universities are ready and willing to eat our lunch. I don't think Georgia is saying "Well, Georgia Tech, you can have this funding for a new nano program but you have to split it with Atlanta Technical college and Highland college". Not going to happen! Same thing for Michigan and Michigan State. I bet the next nano funding goes to SUNY Buffalo or Old Westbury?

You are proving that in the Hudson Valley. Students here are training full time while working part time at GE Energy in Schenectady, becoming a new generation of American leaders in a new generation of American manufacturing. IBM has partnered with the University at Albany; their partnership in nanotechnology is helping students train in the industries in which America has the potential to lead. Rensselaer is partnering not only with this institution but with businesses throughout the Tech Valley. And early next year, Hudson Valley Community College's state-of-the-art TEC-SMART training facility is set to open side-by-side with Global Foundry's coming state-of-the-art semiconductor plant.
