Yesterday, Governor Cuomo announced a four point four billion dollar investment into developing technology in New York State. Today we got a firsthand explanation on how that announcement will affect Central New York. Governor Cuomo said, "Setting out on an exciting mission, to develop the next generation of computer chip." Governor Cuomo announced yesterday that New York State will be the leader in developing new technology. One of the sites for this development is SUNYIT. The technology based school previously announced the building of a technology complex. John Swann said, "The technology complex on our campus which we had announced in the last couple of years will comprise two elements, one primarily an academic building The Center for Advanced technology. The other where the activity was identified in the Governor's announcement will take place is really where the industry component comes in." The industry part of the technology complex will develop the next generation computer chip. The Computer Chip Communications Center will have industry professionals working hand in hand with students. Swann added, "So there are opportunities for students while they are here, there are internship opportunities, there are opportunities to be created for eventual employment after graduation." Officials say at the end of the day it's about keeping and creating jobs in Central New York and the Governor's plan will create nearly a thousand jobs. "It is going to create or retain 6,900 hundred jobs across Upstate New York." Eventually SUNYIT and Mohawk Valley Edge hope to attract an industry player to build a manufacturing site on the campus. "Edge trying to attract the appropriate end user tenant for the Marcy Nanotechnology Center site can only benefit from the Governor's announcement and the activity that will take place here." The main goal of this is to create and develop jobs that will stay right here in Central New York.
