What is UHack?

UHack is 24 hours of brainstorming, building, programming, and testing your own unique and innovative project. Join us for a great day full of making projects, meeting with recruiters from top companies, networking with professional software developers and programmers, and great technical workshops

Where is UHack!

UHack is going on right here at the University of Miami on the third floor of the Shalala Student Center. Join us on December 1 for a great time full of cool projects, interesting technical workshops, and great prizes.

Why UHack?

UHack is run exclusively by University of Miami students to give others the opportunity and environment to learn valuable technical skills by making a unique project. Even if you're brand new to programming, the best way to learn is to dive into a project for a full day and watch it come to life before your eyes.

FAQs

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where student developers get together to make new innovative projects together. You get 24 hours to build something -- an app, a website, an autonomous car -- and then a few minutes to demo your work to our judges. Hackathons are also great places to talk with companies and recruiters who are interested in working with student developers.

How much does UHack cost?

UHack is free for all participants, with the exception of travel expenses. We provide all participants with UHack swag, meals, drinks, and snacks, as well as great prizes for top projects.

What is the application process like?

Simply fill out our application form, and we will review your application for admission.

When do application open and close?

Applications to participate at UHack will open in early October and close in late November. No applications will be accepted after the deadline closes.

Who can apply?

Anyone and everyone is free to apply to participate at UHack. All majors and all years are welcome at our event, including high school students, and students from other universities from around the country.

Do I need a team?

You aren’t required to have a team when UHack begins. Immediately following our opening ceremonies on Saturday, we will be hosting a team formation event that will give you the chance to meet with other hackers and form a team around a specific technology, project idea, or skillset.

What do I need to bring to UHack?

Make sure you bring your computer, and whatever other technology you may need for the weekend, including charging cables, flash drives, external monitors, etc. Also bring a change of clothes, toothbrush, and other necessary toiletries.

Please DO NOT bring: firearms or other weapons, alcohol, illegal drugs, soldering or similar equipment, animals.

Can I use hardware in my hack?

Of course. We love seeing hardware incorporated in hackathon projects! Unfortunately, UHack will only have a very limited selection of harware at the event, so if you would like to incorporate hardware into your hack, we recommend bringing your own.
