EAST GREENSBORO – (Oct. 4, 2018) Students from all majors are ready
to join North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s
“NCATHACK!,” hackathon this weekend, Oct. 5-6.
The College of Engineering’s (COE) computer science department
and the Association of Computing Machinery, will host teams of three
in the Alumni-Foundation Event Center to compete to solve or ‘hack,’
problems presented by corporate sponsors such as Cummins Inc.,
JPMorgan Chase, Nvidia, and SAS.
Successful hacks will have a chance to win prizes, company and
university gifts and, of course, bragging rights.
Students from a variety of majors are encouraged to participate in
the weekend-long challenge, as teams will need sales, marketing,
presentation and coding expertise to successfully compete.
Onsite registration and check-in begins at 4 p.m. Friday, and the
competition kicks off promptly at 5 p.m. For more information
