uOttaHack is Ottawa’s Premier Hackathon community since 2017. It is organized by a student group directly with the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Engineering and the President and Vice-Chancellor's team to deliver Ottawa's largest annual technology. Check out our upcoming event uOttaHack 6 from March 1st - 3rd, 2024!
A hackathon is a community event where students learn new skills, attend educational workshops, network with companies, tackle challenges set by companies, and build projects over a weekend. A hackathon is best described as an “invention marathon”.
Our mission is to empower students to comfortably explore their passion for technology and entrepreneurship, through building a community of like-minded individuals who innovate and disrupt the worlds of business and technology!
Join a strong community of students and mentors who share your passion for technology. If you've ever had an idea that you wanted to bring to life, uOttaHack’s hackathon is the place to do it!
Explore the world of programming through our engaging workshops, hackathons, and a wealth of resources. Gain exposure to the latest technologies that real developers use.
Over the past 6 years, our hackathon event has brought the community together to connect students with each other, to employers & opportunities, and solve real-world challenges. We are excited to share some statistics that reflect this entire journey.
uOttaHack would not be possible without the support of our incredible sponsors. Over the past 6 years, our sponsors have made it possible for over 3000 developers, designers, product managers, and dreamers to turn their ideas into a reality.
