Originating at UC Merced in 2011, the CITRIS Mobile App Challenge (MAC) is a semester-long competition that empowers undergraduate students to develop mobile apps for social impact while fostering innovation, community service, and career development. Guest speakers, industry mentors, and peer networking help students move rapidly from idea to prototype over the course of a semester.
