MakeUC is a 24-hour hackathon hosted by IEEE at the University of Cincinnati. MakeUC was first held as a fully-online hackathon in the fall of 2020. We then had our first hybrid hackathon in 2021, which was a huge success! We have continued hosting MakeUC both in person and online every fall since then, and we always do our best to improve the hacker experience from year to year. We consistently have over two dozen amazing sponsors, hundreds of registrants, tens of thousands of dollars in prizes, and plenty of fun activities.

Here, we believe that the most critical challenges must be solved by interdisciplinary and diverse teams. All you need to participate is a passion for technology and bettering the world. You will have tools, APIs, and workshops at your fingertips to help you learn and accomplish your vision. Whether you are an experienced hacker or a complete beginner, you are welcome at MakeUC. We cannot wait to see what you all create!
