Stewart's Advanced Instrumentation and Technology (SAInT) Center

The Stewart’s Advanced Instrumentation and Technology (SAInT) Center is a multidisciplinary instrumentation suite focused on teaching and research across the departments of the School of Science and is open to users from Siena College and the community.

The formation of the SAInT Center involves several educational initiatives. Each instrument has been incorporated into relevant academic coursework, exposing School of Science students to the latest technology in instrumentation and transforming the current curriculum. Development of an Instrumentation minor program is also underway to augment current programs. The SAInT Center also serves to advance the undergraduate research programs at Siena College with impact across the School of Science with major users in Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Environmental Studies and Sciences, and Physics and Astronomy.
