SASE National Conference

2018 SASEhack



In recognition of the growing needs of computer science and information technology (CS/IT), SASE developed a hackathon event called SASEhack, which is a 21-hour-straight event to engage CS/IT and engineering talents in designing and developing creative programming solutions to a defined challenge. The purpose of SASEhack is to encourage students from these disciplines to hone their programming skills and get connected to technology companies. The top participants will receive awards and recognition, but every participant can benefit from the experience by working alongside peers and experienced mentors. All participants are also welcome to attend the free STEM career fair in the same building at their leisure. SASEhack is completely free and open to all college students (undergraduate or graduate)!

To signup for the 2018 SASEhack, you must complete registration through both links:

For NC registration, choose the "Undergraduate Student" or "Graduate Student" option, then choose the FREE "SASEhack Only" option on the next page  (or any of the other paid options if you would like to attend conference sessions in addition to SASEhack).

Last Year's SASEhack


 Our lead sponsor, Booz Allen Hamilton, provided Samsung Gear VR headsets for participants to develop immersive technology solutions.



 Teams also came up with smartphone- and smartwatch-related projects to show off to the judges.




 SASEhack promotes all aspects of the software project development process, including pitching your ideas and presenting them to an audience.
