Smartphones, tablets, and other powerful mobile devices are rapidly becoming omnipresent and users rely on mobile applications for their communications, business activities, entertainment, and countless other usage scenarios. Application development on mobile and wireless devices differs from programming of “traditional” computing systems in various ways and requires trained professionals that are familiar with the unique requirements of mobile systems and their development platforms and tools.
The goal of this course is to expose talented undergraduate students to hands-on experience with mobile systems, technologies, and applications, thereby preparing them for careers in mobile and wireless communication and computing domains. Specifically, concrete objectives of this course are:
- To increase the number of professionals in the area of mobile applications and technologies.
- To develop student skills and abilities in applying engineering and computing tools and methods to real-world problems.
- To enhance students’ written and oral technical communication skills.
