CNSE and Commerce Technologies Inc. ("CTI") have created a joint workforce development and recruitment program that offers students unique educational and training opportunities at a leading global information technology ("IT") company headquartered at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.
The CNSE-CTI program supports the development and implementation of an advanced education, training and recruitment program for CTI’s CommerceHub. The fast-growing IT firm employs more than 90 specialized technology professionals at its offices at the UAlbany NanoCollege, which represents an 81 percent growth in its workforce over the past seven years.
Students in the CNSE-CTI program receive paid internships for research projects focused on software development, integration, prototyping and implementation for a variety of platforms – including drop-ship fulfillment, database and internal systems – that are critical to the work of CTI’s CommerceHub, the industry’s leading provider of integration and fulfillment solutions for multi-channel e-Commerce merchants.
The advanced education and workforce training that is part of the CTI-CNSE program also supports a growing number of nanotechnology-enabled IT applications – including radio frequency identification devices (“RFID”), global positioning systems (“GPS”), biometrics and other emerging fields – that integrate the design, deployment, utilization and management of emerging computing technologies.
As of December 2010, the program has successfully supported 36 student interns – including 10 who have been
hired by CTI’s CommerceHub for full-time positions at its offices at
CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex.
