Mobile APP Training Camp 2018

To support the “Smart City” master plan of the Macao SAR to develop Macao a smart city characterized by data-driven technology and artificial intelligence for improving residents’ quality of life, the University of Macau (UM) has started the project of “Smart Campus”. As such, UM will use various advanced technologies, including cloud computing, virtualization, and internet of things, to connect the teaching, research, management, security, and dining systems to campus resources and application systems. Smart Phone is now the most frequently used electronic device. Therefore, mobile phone-based applications are becoming one of the new opportunities for realizing smart campus.

To promote the understanding of the development and application of information technology to UM students from different majors, and to assist them to implement their “Smart Campus” ideas by developing mobile applications, the Centre for Innovation is organizing a Mobile APP Training Camp in October. Students are encouraged to actively learn and utilize information technology, and to have an in-depth thinking of IT in application to different majors of study. Combining with the APP development knowledge from the training camp, students are stimulated to design innovative projects related to “Smart Campus”. Hoping to nurture innovative talents through this way, as well as to generate the leaders in the creation of a smart city in Macao.
