MakeUC is a collaborative hardware/software 12-hour hackathon that will bring together Electrical and Computing students to build something cool and learn from each others' experiences. We hope to build a stronger community within UC computing students with your help.

All UC students are welcome and attendance is completely free. MakeUC is a great opportunity to meet fellow students as well as our sponsoring partners!

Come to show off your skills, step out of your comfort zone, and build awesome, creative hacks with others.

  • What is a hackathon? A hackathon is an event where student hackers bring their passion for technology to create a new project coded from scratch. It’s a chance to collaborate and create something unique in any number of forms - an app, a robot, a website! You’ll hopefully learn something new along the way in our high energy, engaging environment!
  • How much does it cost? Nothing! The entire event is free for any UC student, with meals, snacks, and prizes all included.
  • What if I'm new to hackathons? You’re new to hackathons? Wonderful! MakeUC is open to all skill levels, beginners to veterans. There’s nothing we love more than helping our hackers learn something new while they build something cool!
  • How do I form teams? Teams are formed at the event but you're free to organize before if all participants are registered.
