Every year, hundreds of students come to USU from across Utah and Idaho to build projects and attend workshops related to topics from game development and data analytics to hardware and security. The event venue is open overnight, and many teams stay up working all 24 hours!
"Hacking" at this event isn't about breaking into computer systems, it's about quickly building a project that showcases your skills and demonstrates your ability to think outside the box.
All college students and high school seniors are invited to participate! Most are from USU, but about 30% typically come in from other schools across Utah and Idaho. Students of all skill levels are welcome to attend to learn more!
HackUSU is a 24 hour overnight event with plenty of activities offered including:
- Competitions to build projects related to software development, data analytics, hardware, and more!
- Workshops to learn more about a variety of technical topics
- Activities to get to know students from other programs and schools
- Network with employers to find out about internship and career opportunities
- Free food and snacks!
