The UMBC News site featured a design course taught by Viviana Cordova, assistant professor of visual arts, and Nilanjan Banerjee, associate professor of computer science and electrical engineering. The class, Designing and Developing Effective Mobile Applications, was jointly developed and taught in the Spring '16 semester and brought together arts and computer science students. Funding was provided through the Hrabowski Fund for Innovation. The class was designed to teach interdisciplinary collaboration and cooperation in creative projects, and to produce aesthetically pleasing interfaces for fully functioning mobile applications.

Students presented their final work at a demo day on May 10, inviting guests from UMBC and the industry. Some of their games are now available in the Google Play store and, Cordova shares, students had internship and job offers during our event from companies that came to visit the demo presentation.
