View and UIUC: A long-standing partnership
Dr. Martin Neumann, an adjunct professor with the Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering, joined View from UIUC in 2010. At UIUC, Dr. Neumann researched lithium sputtering, deposition, and evaporation at the Center for Plasma Material Interactions. This work led View to recruit Dr. Neumann. He started as a process engineer, and he was a member of the original technical team to develop View's electrochromic windows. Now, as Chief Operations Officer (COO), Dr. Neumann is responsible for manufacturing, facilities, supply chain, IT and field deployment. View continues to actively hire Illinois graduates and hosts engineering students as part of the UIUC Technology Entrepreneurship Center's Silicon Valley Entrepreneurship Week.
