We have partnered with Sony to bring a one day Hackathon to Manchester.
This event is open to students from any discipline across the Faculty of Science and Engineering and beyond. Coding skills are not essential as winners will equally well include those with the brightest ideas and visionary pitches as much as for those who can excel in delivering pragmatic technical solutions to a tight deadline, no matter how rough. The event will be based on team working within groups of four students. You may register as a self-selected team of four, individually or in smaller groups. Do not worry if you have less than four people as any missing numbers will be made up once registration closes. The challenge will be shared at the start of what will be an entertaining and intense few hours where you can equally well show your flair for:- (i) Creativity & Vision, (ii) Innovation, (iii) Delivering Practical Solutions. A range of prizes will be offered across three categories.
As is the nature of such events the specific challenges will be a mystery before the day and will be broad enough to be inclusive and challenging no matter what your chosen undergraduate course may be.
The event should be a fun end to the exam period with judges being drawn from across the Faculty as well as flying in from Sony Japan & Europe.
This is an all day event commencing at 9.30am.
Please register your interest through Eventbrite.
