President Obama at Albany NanoTech

President Barack Obama visited the Albany area for the third time in his presidency, this time to visit University at Albany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. 

President Barack Obama and Governor Andrew Cuomo toured what the president later called the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s “incredible complex.” President Obama spoke to more than 650 researchers, students, and government and business leaders inside what will become the first 450mm wafer cleanroom in the world. He spoke about how the college is training students for specific high-tech jobs in a sector that’s growing, creating a virtuous cycle of manufacturing opportunity in the U.S. He told the crowd, “You have an outstanding university. Now I want what’s happening in Albany to happen across the country.” 

Corporate Plaza and Great Oaks Office Park are each located within two miles of the “NanoCollege.”
