Register a team, and work over the UHack weekend to develop a software application, a business model and a pitch video, which are reviewed by our panel of judges. What you develop is up to you – all we ask is you identify an opportunity or solve a problem or need that aligns with our research themes:

  • Environment, Resources and Sustainability
  • Creativity, Culture and Society
  • Better Health
  • Marine, Antarctic and Maritime
  • Data, Knowledge and Decisions

Check out the University research themes to get some background.

UHack is not all about programming – it’s also about identifying problems and opportunities, developing a business model, and putting together a pitch video that summarises your project.

We recommend your team is well rounded, with business as well as programming skills. Team sizes should be between 4 and 6 people.

Be sure to check the UHack Guide for more information and resources about UHack.

UHack is a collaboration between the University of Tasmania, the TECH, Computing and Technology, and Business student societies, Enterprize and Startup Tasmania.
