Motorola Solutions has opened a college campus innovation center in Illinois that will help undergraduate and graduate students apply skills to technological development.
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Research Park houses the new facility, which marks Motorolaâ€™s first innovation center at a college campus, the company said Friday.
Motorolaâ€™s chief technology office will provide projects that students will work on at the newly-established innovation center. Up to 40 interns and personnel may use the center concurrently.
Craig Ibbotson, technical staff member at Motorola Solutions and a University of Illinois alumnus, will serve as the centerâ€™s site director.
â€œThe universityâ€™s Research Park is an incubator for new ideas and technologies, and we look forward to contributing to that culture of innovation and creativity,â€ said John Kedzierski, senior vice president of video security solutions at Motorola Solutions.
