What's HackNJIT?

HackNJIT is a 24-hour hackathon at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, run by its ACM student chapter (about us: njit.acm.org) in conjunction with the Ying Wu College of Computing. Students break into small teams of up to 4, work together over 24 hours to create a tech project, and at the end present it to our judges!

When and where is HackNJIT?

HackNJIT 2020 will take place on November 7th and 8th! This year it will be a completely online event!

Who can sign up to compete?

Any undergraduate or graduate student at any college in the US, or any recent (within 6 months) graduate from a college, may register.

Will there be prizes?

Yes! Top teams are awarded a variety of prizes, including cash prizes from NJIT and special prizes from sponsors. This year, the overall 1st place team will be awarded $1,500, the 2nd place team will be awarded $1,000, and the 3rd place will be awarded $500.

How big is HackNJIT?

Each year, 400-500 students attend HackNJIT!

Do I have to pay to compete in HackNJIT?

Nope! There’s no fee to sign up or to attend.

Do I have to register as a team?

No! You're welcome to register with your friends and compete with a team, but you can also register by yourself and find a team at the event.

How many students do you accept each year?

As many students as apply! At this time, we do not accept/reject students on the basis of their registration.

Can I use any of my old projects?

NO! The point of a hackathon is to build something original in a short time frame. That said, you are allowed to use open-source frameworks and third-party APIs, with proper citations of course.
