2015 CITRIS Mobile App Challenge Expanding

First hosted at UC Merced in 2011, the CITRIS Mobile App Challenge is a semester-long competition that blends education, prototyping skills and teamwork to empower students to develop apps for societal benefit.

The challenge is expanding this year to include teams at UC Davis and UC Berkeley.

Winning teams at each school receive up to $1,000 and several have developed their apps further by raising additional funding, creating research initiatives, entering incubators or starting companies.

Video | Discover UC Merced: Emily C. Wilson’s Creativity Meets Research

Ph.D. candidate Emily Wilson discovered her passion for research in the natural sciences as an undergraduate student, fueled by a collaboration with the engineering dean and her powerful creative spirit. Collaborating with a dean – especially an interdisciplinary collaboration, is uncommon on other college campuses, but UC Merced provides the perfect environment for such partnerships and innovation.

Campus Expands with New Science and Engineering Building

The long-awaited Science and Engineering Building 2 officially opens today, providing more space for instruction, research and offices.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony begins at 1 p.m.

Thirty months in the making, the building is designed to foster interdisciplinary work for researchers across UC Merced.

We’re continuing a concept that has been important since the campus itself was being planned – collaboration between the schools,” Academic Facilities Planning Director Steve Rabedeaux said.

Engineering Students Working on Water Issues for Summer Research Project

Spending a summer finding ways to make toilet water reusable and trying to extract urine from wastewater might not sound glamorous.

But the results of the work two UC Merced students are doing though a prestigious research partnership could be very important to a state facing a severe drought, as well as for the future of water security.
