What is ACES Hackathon?

ACES Hackathon 2019 is to be held for the 8th consecutive year starting from 13th of September extending for 3 days. The competition is to be held under five categories covering a large range of Computer Engineering related disciplines. The event would be guided by the academic staff, the alumni of the computer engineering department as well as industrial experts. This time several changes have been made to the event to take the winning ideas to the next level by supporting them to initiate their own startup and by providing the necessary guidance to continue improving their product without limiting to the 3 days that the competition is held on. This opportunity would be one of the best platforms for the fresh undergraduates to present their innovative ideas to the experts of the field and to get an exposure to the industry’s expectation from them. At the end of the 3days the participants would not only be able to come with their own innovative product but will also be able to present a proper business plan that would take their solution to the next level.
