Computer science programs use mobile apps to make coursework relevant

"As Virginia Tech and other universities train a new generation of computer scientists, professors are asking students to create programs that address real-life problems, often through handy, smartphone-ready apps. It's a break from traditional coursework such as sorting lists of numbers or re-creating programs that already exist.
The shift comes as the demand for computer engineers outpaces the number of computer science graduates. Today's students grew up with computers, yet many view computer science and code writing as dull and unglamorous, professors say."
