Schurz Communications and Notre Dame CSE Department Team Up for Innovation Challenge

AUTHOR: ND Staff

PUBLISHED: May 13, 2015

The University of Notre Dame’s Computer Science & Engineering program is collaborating with Schurz Communications on a first-of-its-kind “innovation challenge,” beginning fall 2012. Undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty will be asked to consider real-world digital solutions and opportunities for 21st-century media companies. A first area of focus will be mobile development.

Schurz Communications, a cable, high-speed data, TV, radio, print and digital media company, will award large cash prizes for winning prototypes that meet agreed guidelines. Participating students may also compete for local, statewide and national media recognition and opportunities to turn their new digital solutions into new digital businesses.

To enliven projects, students and faculty will also receive secure access to custom feeds, API’s and real-world datasets from Schurz Communications’ wide array of media businesses.
