Design. Build. Innovate!

The NJIT IEEE Student Branch is proud to present the annual Byte into Hardware Hackathon, taking place on April 1-2, 2023. As a student-led organization committed to advancing technology and promoting innovation in the engineering community, we are thrilled to host this exciting event that will challenge participants to showcase their skills in hardware development and software.

NJIT IEEE Student Chapter

We are a group of highly motivated and dedicated engineering students who are passionate about  shaping the future through technology.

Our goal is to provide hands-on learning experiences, industry insights, and networking opportunities to our members.

our PLAN

Our aim for the Byte into Hardware Hackathon is to provide a platform for students to collaborate, create, and demonstrate their technical skills and innovation through hardware projects. The theme for the event is Accessibility and Sustainability.

Participants will be tasked with incorporating electrical components and software to create projects with a focus on accessibility and sustainability. The projects will then be evaluated by a panel of industry experts who will assess their technical merit, originality, and overall impact.

In addition to offering a platform for students to showcase their skills, Byte into Hardware also  serves  as a valuable networking opportunity. Companies from the electrical engineering and technology industries will be in attendance, giving students the chance to interact and make connections that may lead to internships and job opportunities in the future.
