HackWITus aims to bring together students of all backgrounds and provide an unparalleled opportunity to learn beyond the classroom. We want to encourage self-growth by having our attendees experience collaborating with other students solving complex problems, connecting with industry professionals, and developing crucial skills first hand.
All college students and people who have graduated within the last year are permitted to attend and compete unless given specific permission stating otherwise. All attendees must be over the age of 18. Eligible people must attend the event in person and cannot participate remotely by any means.
Hackers should provide links to their projects, detail what they created, why they created, what technology they used, any challenges they faced, and what they learned. Images/videos of their projects are encouraged.
