This is your chance to participate in one of the most anticipated hackathons at UCI, and a chance to learn about employment opportunities with existing startups.

5-6pm - Startup Career Fair + Networking
6-7pm - Hackathon info session + Presentation
7 -8:30pm - Team formation

In this session, we will give an overview of the hackathon AND help you find your teammates. (You will have until the following Sunday 1/15/2023 to finalize your team which must consist of a minimum of three undergraduates and a maximum of five members.)

The UCI University Registrar has hired a consulting company to help them update WebReg’s interface. The ANTrepreneur Center is partnering with the Registrar to help them with customer discovery so that current UCI students can offer high-value feedback on the current website and course registration process. Through our WebReg Hackathon, the University Registrar will be able to gather ideas from students for their new interface.

For this hackathon, groups of students will develop new WebReg designs based on the data they have collected during the customer discovery process. Groups will then pitch their designs to a panel of judges who will select five teams to move onto the final round of the competition.

The final round will consist of two parts: a popular vote that will invite the UCI student body to vote on their favorite designs, and a final pitch where the finalists teams will present their designs to the judges and a live audience. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three teams which will be determined by a combination of the student vote and judges’ scores. The student votes will account for 40% of each team’s overall score, and the judges’ feedback will account for 60% of the overall score. The team that earns the most student votes will win the separate crowd favorite prize. At the end of the hackathon, the winning designs and the survey data will be sent to the University Registrar to consider in their WebReg redesign.
