In celebration of the upcoming National Engineers Week and George Washington’s birthday, the nation’s first engineer, the New York State Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology will host its inaugural region-wide, interdisciplinary student hackathon, Hack@CEWIT, focusing on industry-relevant internet of things (IoT) and microservices challenges in the Center’s 100,000 s.f., next-generation research and education facility — at Stony Brook University.

As strengthening the technology and engineering workforce pipeline is an integral component of CEWIT’s three-fold mission, Hack@CEWIT will bridge university brainpower with regional industry priorities, investigating innovative, next-generation solutions while advancing tech literacy and fostering new enterprise development.

Hack@CEWIT is designed in conjunction with our core industry partners, sponsors, and member entrepreneurs to select scenarios that will have a direct, real-world application to their product portfolios. A lab-to-marketplace approach that is largely representative of CEWIT and one that provides a valuable educational resource for our students and regional business community.
