Education Building



HackTCNJ is an annual hackathon at The College of New Jersey.

Hosted by TCNJ ACM

Hacking is all about building things that you always wanted to have but no one has built it yet. It's to come up with an amazing idea and work tirelessly on it. It is to fail, and fail again until you achieve your goals. Try out new things and learn while becoming a hacker at HackTCNJ.

Join the close-knit HackTCNJ community in Ewing, New Jersey this year to hack your dream project, sharpen your skills, or begin your journey by discovering as a hacker! Find other talented students from the tri-state area and beyond to work and socialize with. Discover recruiting opportunities from great companies and spend 24 hours to show off your full potential.

Have fun with it! We'll have a super time.

HackTCNJ is a hackathon, where student engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs gather to create innovative software projects. HackTCNJ is a 24-hour event that is free for students to participate in. Sponsor companies support the event by sending monetary donations and representatives. We would love to work with you to be one of our valued sponsors for this event. HackTCNJ is taking place on February 23rd and 24th, 2019 at The College of New Jersey in Ewing, NJ (about an hour from New York City and 45 minutes from Philadelphia).

We would love to work with you if you are interested in sponsoring us.
