The Daily Cal - Students Create Class on Counter-Terrorism after Nice Attack

Check out the Daily Cal article here

“ The class, founded by Tyler Heintz, Alice Ma and former Daily Californian reporter Anjali Banerjee, uses technology to address problems of international terrorism and terrorist financing.

'At UC Berkeley, there is a heavy presence of opportunities for engineers to join the private sector,' Banerjee said. 'We want to encourage engineers and people with backgrounds in technology (so) that they can also work for social enterprise — something they might not have considered before.'

According to Heintz, he and his fellow co-founders were driven to create the class after the Bangladesh and Nice terrorist attacks.

'We lost a good friend,' Heintz said. '(There was) a lot of motivation and frustration (in) not being able to do anything about the problem of international terrorism.'"
