The Hackathon is CCSE's premier event in showcasing student talent and connecting companies to our students. Through dedicated “threads” (aka themes) within the event, companies can raise awareness of opportunities for students to work with them, increase brand awareness, and locate top talent for computing workforce. 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.
International Programming Competition
The International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is an algorithmic programming contest for college students. Teams of three, representing their university, work to solve the most real-world problems, fostering collaboration, creativity, innovation, and the ability to perform under pressure. Through training and competition, teams challenge each other to raise the bar on the possible. Quite simply, it is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world.
Each year, Kennesaw State University College of Computing and Software Engineering will host a total of 65+ teams which includes teams from Kennesaw State University.
Internship Networking Event
The Internship Networking Night is a flash networking event where students can connect with potential employers. Students are encouraged to be interview ready and have plenty of resumes on hand!
Raspberry Pi Workshop
CCSE offers several Raspberry Pi Teacher Workshops each year. Teachers complete a "guided experimentation" project with a Raspberry Pi, then design and complete a project of their own. Finally, they work with others to complete a group project of their own design.Workshop participants take away a teacher kit containing a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, case, power supply, and parts pack to use in their classrooms. The workshops are offered free of charge to qualified teacher.
