UHACK is a 48-hour technological competition that aims to solve real problems experienced by a company or organization based in Outaouais. The solution developed must be digital and designed in a multidisciplinary team.

Anyone studying in a secondary (2nd cycle), college, or university in the Outaouais region can participate in this hackathon.

UHACK is an unparalleled experiential learning opportunity. In addition to numerous prizes, students have the chance to be mentored by experts from the digital industry and internationally renowned professors – Some even secure employment after the competition.

In short, UHACK is a community-building event where students, professionals and the faculty join forces in the name of innovation!
