Albany's College of Nanoscale, Science and Engineering is expanding to Central New York and with that, comes 1,500 new high tech jobs.

CNSE has merged with Utica's SUNY IT, and on Tuesday, the Utica campus will be holding a job fair to fill those new positions.

The Computer Chip Commercialization Center located on campus is looking to fill more than 300 current and future positions.

They will be hiring engineers, technicians, IT specialists among other positions. Leaders say they're looking to keep the project local.

"We want to accommodate as many of the locals, in terms of getting them, training them and getting them ready, for Nano Utica," said Alain Kaloyeros, CNSE/SUNY-IT President

The job fair is part of the $1.5 billion Nano Utica initiative. Jobs include benefits and a salary ranging from $35,000 to $100,000 a year.
