WarwickHACK is WarwickTECH's official hackathon run in partnership with Hackathons UK!

WarwickHACK 2021 is a great opportunity to see how in 24 hours ambition and passion, added with a pinch of creativity, can disrupt the world we live in. Our hackathon has no theme and is open to all university students - You do not need to have any coding experience! - For the first time, we will be running the event fully digitally!

During WarwickHACK 2021, you will be able to create teams of up to 4 members. You don’t need to have a group prior to the event, but you are welcome to find teammates before it starts!

📣 We are currently looking for volunteers to help us out during the event! Interested in learning how hackathons are organised? Want to get involved with WarwickTECH (and improve your CV?😉)? Sign up here and we'll get back to you if you are selected!

By the way, what is a hackathon?

Here’s a short video from our previous partner MLH that explains it all!
