SCSU Academic Science and Laboratory Building
The mission of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) Center for Nanotechnology is to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research and educational initiatives/programs in micro- and nanotechnology with the goal of enhancing Connecticut’s workforce competitiveness in nanotechnology and materials science. The Center builds upon existing collaborations with Yale University, University of Connecticut, and the Connecticut Community Colleges to create programs enhancing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education for the CSCU community and beyond.

The CSCU Center for Nanotechnology is the primary resource for SCSU's Graduate Certificate in Nanotechnology, the Applied Physics Masters: Nanotechnology/Materials Science track, as well as an array of research opportunities and professional development for students and faculty. 

During the summer of 2017, the Werth Family Foundation will be sponsoring an "Industry Academic Fellowship".
