About Mobile App Challenge

Mobile App Challenge

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.
