Drexel University has opened a mobile app development lab thanks to a donation from Pennsylvian-based software company Bentley Systems. The Expressive and Creative Interaction Technologies (ExCITe) center will help students research and develop their own applications with the latest technology.

Administered by the university’s Pennoni Honors College, the center will host events to showcase student research as well as panel discussions and demonstrations.

Drexel students already have a precedent for creating popular apps. Some mobile programs developed by former and current undergrads include Scholly, which helps students find scholarships, and VisAssist, designed to help people with impaired vision read printed text.

Drexel is not the first American university to create an on-campus app lab — Temple University opened the Urban Apps and Maps Studio in February 2012.
