The University of Miami IEEE would like to bring you UHack, a 24-hour hackathon. UHack will take place at the end of Engineering Week, Saturday February 21st, and finish the next day, Sunday February 22nd. Taking place in the Center Ballroom in the Student Activity Center at the University of Miami, we are open to any student from any educational institution who would like to take some time off their semester by making something fun and possibly win some great prizes from our amazing sponsors. All for FREE.
This year, we are going to HACK FOR A BETTER U and focus on building projects for the benefit of improving one’s lifestyle. This completely open-ended, you can utilize any platform, framework, language, or hardware device they desire and utilize it to their own will for the benefit of making something better. You can start from scratch or hack something previously created in order to change/improve its functionality or purpose. If you want to make a real-life life-hack, this is the place to be!
UHack will be a 24-hour long event where all you have to worry about is your app. We'll provide food, drinks (and caffeine), sweets, games, and comfortable couches to keep you going for that long. Oh, and other goodies like prizes and sponsor-swag!
Are you a student? (You do not have to be a University of Miami student) Would you like to hack along with other students in an awesome community, use fun and great technologies, and create something new and useful in the world? UHack and the University of Miami open our doors and wall-outlets to you. So join us. Who knows? You might even win an awesome prize! UHack is also a great way to celebrate National E-Week.
Engineering Week is a week in February in which the students at the University of Miami celebrates engineering in all of its forms. Students from all departments at the college of engineering take part in a number of cool engineering events, culminating with UHack at the end of the week.
