Learn. Collaborate. Create.

EngHack brings together passionate students for a two-day hackathon. Whether you're a first-timer or a battle-scarred veteran, all are welcome; ability doesn't matter, only your willingness to learn and have a good time!

Questions? Get in touch!


Join us on May 26-27 to create something cool with a team of up to 4 people. Anyone can apply but only accepted students may attend.

A hackathon is an event where participants can work on any software and hardware project of their choosing without distraction. At the end of the competition you will be given the chance to present your project to the audience for a chance at winning one of the various prizes. It's an event where you can focus on building something cool - and we're all smart, creative people who know how to build things.

And don't worry about food and drinks - It's on us.
