MakeUC is a 24-hour hackathon hosted by IEEE at the University of Cincinnati. MakeUC was first held as a fully-online hackathon in the fall of 2020. We then had our first hybrid hackathon in 2021, which was a huge success! We have continued hosting MakeUC both in person and online every fall since then, and we always do our best to improve the hacker experience from year to year. We consistently have over two dozen amazing sponsors, hundreds of registrants, tens of thousands of dollars in prizes, and plenty of fun activities.
