The Nanoscale Materials Technology program at SCCC is part of a joint venture with SuperPower, Inc. and Union College, both located in Schenectady, New York.
SCCC has received a $1 million grant from the New York State Senate to renovate two laboratories for physics/electronics and vacuum science and to purchase an atomic force microscope, as well as optical microscopes, computers and software.
The Electrical Technology: Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology program prepares students for careers in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. The training provided is field oriented and generally covers the principles and practices that apply to industry applications of electricity and semiconductor manufacturing. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to work in capacity field service, test, and manufacturing, or may transfer to a baccalaureate program.
Northeast Advanced Technological Education Center
The Northeast Advanced Technological Education Center (NEATEC) is an ATE Regional Center funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Our long-term goal of this planning proposal will be to establish the Tech Valley ATE Center for Semiconductor and Nanotechnology Workforce Development, led by Hudson Valley Community College, whose mission will be to bring together business, educators, and government in a collaborative effort to build a highly-skilled technical workforce to meet the soon-to-be burgeoning employment demands of these rapidly growing industries in our region.
The Nanotechnology AAS degree program is designed to help prepare students from a broad range of disciplines for careers in fields involving Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is engineering at the atomic length scale, a size range which until recently was only available to nature. Being able to engineer such small structures opens the door to a multitude of new opportunities in the fields of electronic and semiconductor fabrication technology, micro-technology labs, material science labs, chemical technology, biotechnology, biopharmaceutical technology, and environmental science.
Students will study electronic device and circuit behavior, basic chemistry and fabrication techniques used to create micron and submicron scale structures. Techniques covered include reactive ion etching, metallization, thick and thin film deposition and photolithography.
