The Mobile App Challenge, managed through CITRIS at UC Merced, encourages students to develop innovative mobile applications for today’s most pressing societal needs. Team projects take one of two forms:
- Apps inspired by five focus areas: healthcare, energy, the environment, education and civic engagement. Teams are asked to design apps that support some of CITRIS's main goals and help better the world.
- Other teams showcase their projects from the Software Engineering CSE 120 course, such as games that can be played on smartphones and tablets.
