Think. Create. Develop. In 24 Hours.
Hackathons are usually 24 hour events in which software and/or hardware developers collaborate
with each other to build amazing solutions. At the pinnacle of innovation, Columbia Engineering
Entrepreneurship supports our partners to make these events possible on our campus. Please
