CNSE is located within a 800,000 square foot complex that houses the most advanced 200mm/300mm wafer facilities in the academic world, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms equipped with 300mm wafer processing tools. The complex incorporates state-of-the-art, R&D and prototype manufacturing infrastructure for nano/microelectronics, nanophotonics and optoelectronics, nano/micro systems (MEMS) and nanopower science and technology.
CNSE also manages and supports the Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center (STC) located outside Rochester, NY, positioning CNSE as a vertically integrated "one-stop-shop" for smart systems' device development and process manufacturing.
Faculty and students have access to leading edge tools in metrology, lithography including EUV lithography, front-end-of-line and back-end-of-line processing. Qualified instructors and trained technicians help students and faculty master the tools and equipment and carry out their own experiments.
