Albany NanoTech center in New York State has rapidly become one of the key facilities for advanced research into semiconductor materials and processes in North America. Part of the program is to attract the right students and young engineers that will be required to work for major IC manufacturers in the coming years. Part of the problem in attracting students to take engineering courses is the fact few teachers working below university levels have a good understanding of what it is like to work in the semiconductor industry and find it difficult to then mentor and educate students to the career opportunities.

A story at Times Union, a local Albany newspaper highlights the Tech Valley Teacher Externship Program that has been established to help teachers understand more about working in technology fields. Qimonda was noted in the article as a participant in the program which underlines that large semiconductor companies think the program is worth participating in.
