College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Programs

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering helps appropriate organizations in expanding and enhancing traditional specialized apprenticeships to retrain trade union workers to match the skills needed for cleanroom construction and machine tool fit-up. A case in point is the Center for Construction Trades Training, a joint venture involving the New York State Assembly, M+W Zander, the Arsenal Business and Technology Partnership and CNSE. This $3.5 million office and cleanroom construction training center located at the Watervliet Arsenal to date has trained more than 600 trade union members with the skills necessary to meet the area's immediate need for personnel to construct and maintain cleanroom facilities and install precision machinery.
