QUALCOMM Cafe

RENDERING COURTESY OF UC BERKELEY FACILITIES SERVICES

QUALCOMM, the San Diego–based wireless telecommunications company, is providing a generous gift in support of the new headquarters building for CITRIS, the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society.

In recognition of QUALCOMM’s support, the building’s new cafe will be called the QUALCOMM CyberCafe. Featuring 24-hour service and wireless Internet, the cafe will be a social hub for CITRIS and the entire College of Engineering. It is one of several projects in the works for the new CITRIS building, scheduled for completion in 2008, which will also house a large nanofabrication lab, flexible teaching and research facilities, and distance learning classrooms.

QUALCOMM CEO Paul Jacobs (B.S.’84, M.S.’86, Ph.D.’89 EECS) says of the company’s gift, “It is gratifying to be able to support one of the best engineering schools in the world.”
