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.

Southern California Edison Earns Engineering Vanguard Award

Southern California Edison has been selected as this year’s recipient of the UC Merced School of Engineering Vanguard Margin of Excellence Award.

“Southern California Energy’s partnership with UC Merced has created countless opportunities for engineering students to positively impact their communities,” School of Engineering Dean Dan Hirleman wrote to the company, calling it a model partner for the university.

The Vanguard Award was created to honor corporate partners that have had a transformational effect on the educational experience of School of Engineering students.

Senior’s Post-Graduation Plans Include Developing Web Business

It’s what’s inside that’s different – the home office of a startup company offering a web service that has, in less than a year, become very popular with government agencies, large companies and universities across the country and around the world.

MESA Lab’s Unmanned Planes Could Be Game Changers for Many

Peek in the windows at the Mechatronics, Embedded Systems and Automation (MESA) Lab sometime. You’ll probably see students flying small remote-controlled vehicles at all hours of the day and night.

Sometimes the students are having so much fun they have to be pushed to go home and sleep.

But what seems like a hobby or diversion is actually serious research.
