More Information

This competition is a fast-paced simulation of a real-world project. Teams are to work collaboratively on a problem to provide a set of deliverables within a short timeframe. Utilising their theoretical knowledge, students gain first-hand experience to develop their critical thinking, build new skill sets, push themselves out of their comfort zone and build lasting relationships.

The Hackathon is a unique opportunity for students worldwide to apply their academic knowledge to real-world engineering challenges, fostering teamwork, problem-solving, and critical skills. This free-to-enter, hands-on competition prepares students for future careers by emphasising budgeting, communication, and project management. Not to mention the winning solutions walk away with cash prizes!
