ALBANY, N.Y.—Nano College connected a UAlbany graduate with an unmatched career and professional opportunities in New York State.
Emily Behnke, UAlbany graduate, began her college education never thinking it would lead her to a career at the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.
After graduating from UAlbany with a Bachelor's Degree in English in 2004, followed by an M.B.A in 2006, Behnke became CNSE's Assistant Vice President of Clean Energy Programs and the Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) Assistant Director.
"This burgeoning high-tech ecosystem is allowing countless people like Emily to build upon and apply their SUNY education in ways that will pay dividends as they in turn support the state's next-generation economy," said Dr. Pradeep Haldar, CNSE VP of Entrepreneurship Innovation and Clean Energy Programs and Director of E2TAC.
E2TAC plays a major role in the state's high-tech progress as it works with companies in the energy and environmental industries.
"I am thrilled that SUNY graduates can leverage CNSE's statewide reach, state-of-the-art facilities, and world-class capabilities to connect with exciting careers, just as I was able to take my UAlbany educational experience to the next level," said Behnke.
