Hudson Valley Community College’s TEC-SMART (Training and Education Center for Semiconductor Manufacturing and Alternative and Renewable Technologies) facility opened January 2010 in Malta, NY. It features more than a dozen state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories to train the workforce in semiconductor manufacturing green technologies, including photovoltaic, home energy efficiency, geothermal, alternative fuels and wind energy. In addition, courses in Business and the Liberal Arts and Sciences area, including English, psychology, math and more are offered.

TEC-SMART was a joint initiative between Hudson Valley Community College and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The training facility is located at the Saratoga Technology and Energy Park® (STEP®), which is next to the Luther Forest Technology Campus, a 1,350-acre campus designed for nanotechnology manufacturing and research and development. TEC-SMART will provide skilled technicians for these plants as well as the growing renewable energies field, helping to accelerate the economic growth of both industries by providing the trained workers they require.
