Frequently Asked Questions

  • Students can hone their skills, apply the knowledge they gain inside the classroom in authentic, real-world problems, and connect with internship and job opportunities.

    Each industry sponsor will present one challenge in either the technology area or business/marketing area related to their Corporate Social Responsibility or area of Social Good they wish to target. In each of these challenges, students will be chosen to form teams of 3 (and strictly no more than 3) to solve these challenges and present their solutions to industry sponsors. Many different skill sets on every team are desired for the best results for our industry leaders.

  • Come together with friends and other students, meet new people, strengthen your design and development skills, and connect with companies eager to identify talent and see what you can make… all within one week. This hackathon will strengthen your resume, let you apply what you are doing in the classroom into real-world scenarios, and let you connect with employers for possible internships, part time and full-time job opportunities.
