Who are we?

Each year, the University of Waterloo’s Engineering Society brings together over 300 of the most innovative and creative students. These students come together for 36 hours, solving problems from the ground up using their diverse technical backgrounds and ingenuity.

Our Mission

The inaugural EngHack was born out of the idea that not everyone needs to be an accomplished programmer to benefit from a hackathon.

COVID-19 physically set us apart, so this year, our mission is to virtually bring the community together.
