2014 THEME


The University of Miami IEEE and ACM would like to bring you UHack, a 24-hour hackathon (app creation event). UHack will take place at the end of Engineering Week, Saturday February 22nd, and finish the next day, Sunday February 23rd. Taking place in the International Lounge in the Whitten University Center at the University of Miami, we are open to any student from any educational institution who would like to take some time off their semester by making something fun and possibly win some great prizes from our amazing sponsors. All for FREE.

This year, we are embracing EVERYDAY LIFE as a central theme for the apps and hardware hacks designed this weekend. And by everyday life, we mean improving all aspects of all walks of life. Want to make a new app to track progress at the gym or something that will help people cook or dress better? Go ahead. This is your time to work on that side project you've been putting off.

This Year's Hacks

Hack for 24 hours

UHack will be a 24-hour long event where all you have to worry about is your hack. We'll provide food, drinks (and caffeine), sweets, and comfortable couches to keep you going for that long.

Oh by the way, we'll start giving out prizes every hour starting at midnight until 6am to keep you pumped up all night!
