Kettering University Rolls out Kettering Mobile for ‘Smart Phones’

Kettering University logoFLINT, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kettering University rolled out a new web application called Kettering Mobile for use on “smart phones” -- like an iPhone, Droid or Blackberry, plus the new iPad -- during ceremonies in Flint on June 3.

Kettering is the first university in Michigan to introduce this type of web application, which can be viewed at: http://m.kettering.edu/

Kettering Mobile was created by Northville students Brad Birdsall (senior in Computer Science) and Matt Gaidica (senior in Electrical Engineering), assisted and supported by IT staff members Aaron Grant, Jim McMillan and Tomas Hajek.

Birdsall and Gaidica are among Kettering’s leading student entrepreneurs and have been active in Kettering’s strong Entrepreneurship program on campus. The students have already created their own company called Prime Studios, http://www.primestudiosllc.com/, with offices in Northville, Mich.

Birdsall said no other university in Michigan has a web application like this. It allows easy access to Kettering’s website through the use of smart phones. One of the highlights of the new mobile application is its ability to tap into the many advanced publication features developed by Kettering University. With Kettering Mobile, users are now able to view the campus events calendar, read the latest news stories, and receive real-time university alert messages from a mobile device. Kettering Mobile also links directly to other social networking outlets such as YouTube, Flickr, Twitter, Linked-In and Facebook. Additionally, these services will allow access to Kettering’s current videos and photos from anywhere there is a signal, he explained.
