Deputy Secretary of Commerce Don Graves highlights SUNY Poly's Career Alignment Platform for high-tech training
"...Earlier this year, I traveled to Upstate New York to visit the Albany Nanotech Complex at the SUNY Polytechnic Institute—an advanced R&D facility, led by NY CREATES, a resource for public-private and academic partnerships. The facility specializes in commercialization projects, enabling access to semiconductor design and prototyping for startups, smaller businesses, and universities, as well as helping to attract investment for entrepreneurs.
"Alongside this effort is SUNY’s Career Alignment Platform Initiative, partially funded by the Commerce Department. It provides students and workers with training and support through the Nanotech Complex, as well as strong university partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other premier research universities, in order to access jobs in the chips industry. This ecosystem is laying the groundwork that will help to create hundreds of new chips companies and build a world class semiconductor workforce right here in the U.S."
