2016 THEME


The University of Miami IEEE is proud to bring you UHack, a 24-hour hackathon. UHack will take place at the beginning of Engineering Week, from Saturday, February 20th, to Sunday, February 21st. Taking place in the Ballrooms of the Student Activity Center at the University of Miami, we are open to any student in the area who would like to take a break from their ordinary classes to make something fun and compete for some great prizes from our amazing sponsors. All for FREE.

This year, we are going to FIND THE DEVELOPER IN U and focus on building projects that can improve one’s lifestyle. This is completely open-ended, you can use any platform, framework, language, or hardware device you desire and configure it however you want 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!

Register Here!

24 Hours of Code

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!
