The research institutes of the ASI are also involved in a number of major university-wide economic development research programs, including the CUNY Center for Advanced Technology for Ultrafast Photonic Materials and Applications, which is sponsored by New York State, and the Higher Education Applied Technology Program, which is also funded by the state.
Directors of the institutes are scientists of international stature who have demonstrated records of attracting substantial grants and contracts from both government and industrial sources. The institutes draw on the skills and efforts of faculty and postdoctoral research associates as well as graduate and undergraduate students at the college.
In addition to the formal institutes, the ASI seeks to promote and encourage other applied research at the college in such fields as information systems and computational science, health and nutrition, and aquaculture, among others. Programs leading to an M.A. degree through applied sciences laboratories are offered through the departments of biology, chemistry, geology, health and nutrition sciences, psychology, and physics to students with appropriate undergraduate credentials.
