Rowan University’s student branch of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is hosting its third hackathon! Located in Glassboro, New Jersey and just half an hour away from Philadelphia, Rowan University is proud to host this event and welcomes anyone, from first-timers to full-stack devs. If you have a cool technology idea that you want to make happen, this event is for you!
ProfHacks will be located in Engineering Hall at 600 North Campus Drive, Glassboro, NJ 08028.
Any high school, undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to attend. There will be a few teams comprised of employees from local engineering and technology firms, however, these teams will be seperated from hackers and will not be elegible for the same prizes as hackers.
Applications will be reviewed by the ProfHacks committee and selected participants will and be notified via email. Rowan students are guaranteed acceptance to this event, but will still need to apply.
ProfHacks is completely free! Food, drinks, and awesome swag are completely free of charge!
You can park in Parking Lot D, right next to the engineering building.
The maximum number of people a team can have is four. Though encouraged, having a team beforehand is not necessary. If you want to form a team at ProfHacks, there will be a fun mixer beforehand to help you meet potential team members.
You should bring some form of identification (driver’s license, school ID card, etc.), laptops, phones, chargers and sleeping gear. You will also need to sign a liability waiver and photo release form to gain admittance.
Tools such as power drills, Dremel drills, soldering irons, and the like are prohibited. Articles such as weapons and alcohol are also prohibited. Any competitor found to be in possession of these articles will be disqualified from the competition.
Unfortunately, we will not be offering travel reimbursment.
We are super excited to have MLH provide hardware for hackers to use during the event! A list will be updated a couple of weeks before the event.
