7th Annual Hack@CEWIT: back in person in March!

Hack@CEWIT will be held once again in-person on March 3-5, 2023 at the CEWIT building in the R&D Park at Stony Brook University following a two-year "virtual hackathon" due to COVID.   More than 300 university students from across the U.S. will be taking part in a 44-hour hackathon run by the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) at Stony Brook University.

The theme for this year’s hackathon is “Hacking a Sustainable Future” and will feature innovative projects in IoT, Healthcare, Energy & Sustainability, Defense Technology & Cybersecurity. The event will culminate in a virtual science fair and award ceremony in which several prizes will be awarded, including Best In Show for both graduate and undergraduate students.  The finale is open to the public to view the projects on Sunday - doors open at 10am on Sunday, March 5th.

Hack@CEWIT began in February 2017, when hackathons were not as widespread and popular as they are now – but even back then, ideas were flowing and the enthusiasm to participate was high.  Since then, Hack@CEWIT has become one of the most popular hackathons in the Northeast. From year to year, it brings together student hackers, industry thought leaders, academic and industry mentors, and hand-on tech talks and workshops to innovate new ideas, new innovations.
