Happy Monday Everybody!
One of the many unique aspects of UMBC is how much our students, faculty and staff value cross-disciplinary collaboration. There are endless possibilities for students to explore other areas of study outside of their own.
One wonderful example of this is the result of a new course introduced this past Spring 2016 dedicated to “prepare students for careers requiring interdisciplinary, team-based approaches to creative projects” (UMBCNews, 2016).
The “Designing and Developing Effective Mobile Applications” class brought together the Visual Arts, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering departments to help students create their own apps. How cool is that?!
Our wonderful students came up with many incredible apps, from one that silences your phone from ringing during a meeting or an appointment to a fun puzzle game.
You can learn more about the apps and how the class came to be by clicking here!
Can’t wait to see what great things you all will accomplish during your time at UMBC!
