More than 30,600 students applied to be part of Binghamton University's Class of 2019, and the 2,570 freshmen and 1,069 transfers we welcomed in August are among the most academically impressive in University history. Read about some of the reasons students flock to Binghamton University for its academics, research and scholarly activities in this quarter's report.
FLEXIBLE HYBRID ELECTRONICS FUNDING SUPPORTS NEW CENTER
Binghamton University will lead the New York node of a new $75 million, five-year federal initiative to advance flexible hybrid electronics manufacturing. The funding will create the third federal center within Binghamton’s Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center (S3IP) and build on the University’s capabilities in electronics packaging and roll-to-roll manufacturing. “Flexible electronics research is an example of what Binghamton University does best,” said Bahgat Sammakia, vice president for research and director of S3IP. “This campus has a strong history of bringing academia and industry together to produce innovations that benefit society. We can’t wait to get to work with our partners.”
ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGES, MAJOR GRANT RENEWALS AND PLENTY OF ACTIVITIES
The Division of Student Affairs takes the lead on many initiatives on campus -- including Move-in Day. Feedback from students and families is that everything went smoothly as we moved more about 3,500 new students into their residence halls on Aug. 27, and welcomed returning students the day after. Read about our opening week activities, how we've reorganized our staff following retirements and the great renewal of nearly $3 million in federal grants in this report.
