The European Union higher education is subject to internationalization and adaptation to the requirements of the labor market. Both these trends necessitate development of new interdisciplinary curricula in English. The article presents lessons learned from the project of the development of the new Master's program called Mobile Application Development in Environmental Monitoring which was pursued at the Lublin University of Technology in Poland. The paper also concentrates on results of the project evaluation conducted among the project team members and obtained by means of a survey during a meeting closing the activity. The survey consists of five closed questions groups: the influence of the project on various aspects of work of an academic teacher, positive and negative aspects of the project, the level of satisfaction with participation in the project and the level of fulfilled expectations. The paper presents conclusions from the realization of the tasks that will hopefully enable other teams to use the discussed experiences and selected examples of practices in MADEM in order to increase the probability of success in similar projects.
