Who We Are

RuMAD was founded by ambitious students who were fascinated by the intersection of technology and mobility. David Zafrani ('14), Chris Dilks ('13), Kyle Byrne ('13), Justina Sigle ('12), and Nate Kott ('13) founded the club in September of 2011 and soon after represented Rutgers at national hackathons and conferences. It is because of them that Rutgers is the hub of university mobile app development on the East Coast.

RuMAD is now home to more than 200 diverse members, with a wide spectrum of interest and proficiency. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the appropriate member below.
