Hacker Guide

Engaging. Engenius. Engineering.

Engineering isn’t all trains, bridges, and matrix multiplication. It’s creating and innovating for the better. Contrary to our event name, you don’t even need to be an engineer to come make cool things at EngHack.

Questions? Get in touch with enghack@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca!
