Event description

Description

Come together with friends and other students, meet new people, strengthen your design and development skills, and connect with companies eager to identify talent and see what you can make… all within one weekend. This hackathon will strengthen your resume, let you apply what you’re doing in the classroom into real-world scenarios, and let you earn valuable cash, prizes, and awards!

Each industry sponsor will present challenges related to their thread of industry. Multiple challenges are possible for each sponsor. In each of these challenges, students will be chosen to form teams to solve these challenges presenting the best of our students in Computer Science, Information Technology, Software Engineering and Game Development. Many different skillsets on every team are desired for the best results for our industry leaders.

For more information, check our site at http://ccse.kennesaw.edu/news-events/ccse-hackathon.php.

This event is open to all KSU CCSE students (ACS, BASIT, IT, CS, SWE, and CGDD) who have passed their first few programming courses; you need to have completed these courses to ensure you’re deep enough into your major to meaningfully contribute to your team. Graduate students who have exempted all transitional courses or have passed at least three 5000 transition courses are also eligible.

Food and snacks will be provided throughout the weekend during the hackathon, computer labs will be open for working on projects with industry sponsors and faculty during the weekend, attendees can come and go as needed throughout the weekend (and work on projects off campus), with the exception of Sunday when all attendees are expected to attend the final presentations and awards luncheon.

To register, please provide your name, KSU EMAIL ONLY, KSU ID number, t-shirt size, phone number, and first and second sponsor choices. If your information cannot be verified, you won't be able to participate in the hackathon.

If you have any questions concerning eligibility or about the event itself, contact the event coordinator.
