    A hub for innovation, scholarship, applied research and commercial development.

Weather. Climate. Emergency Preparedness. Sustainability.
These disciplines are preparing tomorrow’s leaders to tackle the most serious challenges facing humankind.

Individually, they yield critical new knowledge. But when co-located inside ETEC, UAlbany’s newest state-of-the-art and environmentally sustainable facility, they become a striking example of how a whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. 

ETEC is a hub for innovation, scholarship, applied research and commercial development designed to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations to confront complex problems. Inside, students, faculty and researchers work hand-in-hand with entrepreneurs to translate new knowledge into creative solutions that fuel economic growth and create jobs. 

ETEC also leverages an asset that no other university in New York can: UAlbany’s proximity to the nerve center of New York State policy and decision-making. Located across the street from the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES), Office of Emergency Management and the New York State Police, ETEC offers UAlbany students, faculty and staff unparalleled applied learning and research opportunities in partnership with key agencies working to make New York safer, more prepared and more resilient.
