UAlbany Breaks Ground for ETEC

Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurship Complex

UAlbany’s Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurship Complex (ETEC) is taking shape at the southwest corner of the Harriman State Office Campus. The groundbreaking for the project took place in April.

Funded in part through the NYSUNY 2020 program, the $180-million complex will combine the University’s existing research strengths, some of its fastest-growing new programs, and innovative entrepreneurial resources in a single state-of-the-art facility, fostering teaching, research, and business collaborations.

ETEC will be the future home of UAlbany’s first-in-the-nation College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity (CEHC). It will also house the University’s Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences; the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center; and other academic departments, as well as the New York State Mesonet, the nation’s most advanced weather-detection system.
