Engineering isn’t all trains, bridges, and matrix multiplication. It’s creating and innovating for the better. You don’t even need to be an engineer to come make cool things at EngHack!

We have mentors, leading industry professionals, a locker full of supplies, and tables of food to serve so that your idea can come to life. We want you to be immersed with like-minded and creative people so you can focus on building something amazing, You could also have the chance to present it to an audience to win some pretty awesome prizes.

If you consider yourself a creator, join us on May 25-26 for 24 hours of ideation and invention. We invite any student over 18 to apply to be part of this engaging event. Oh, and did we mention, we’ve got food too!
