Nanowerk News: The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's STC earns ISO certification
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's (CNSE) Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Canandaigua, a world-class resource for the development and manufacturing of micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) and nanotechnology-enabled innovations, announced Monday that it has earned a critical designation that will open up significant new opportunities to create high-tech jobs and attract additional partners in the industrial and government sectors.
With successful completion of the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) 9001:2008 registration, CNSE's STC is well-positioned to pursue expanded programs with a host of commercial customers, both domestic and global, as well as with federal entities, including the Department of Defense and various intelligence agencies that require ISO certification to participate in certain projects.
Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, CNSE Senior Vice President and CEO, said, "As further testimony to Governor Andrew Cuomo's pronouncement that New York State is open for business, this designation gives new momentum to the continued growth of CNSE's STC and its ability to attract high-tech jobs to Western New York. Armed with ISO registration, we look forward to pursuing exciting opportunities to enable new partnerships in both the public and private sectors."
