SASE National Conference

2017 SASEhack Lead Sponsor Booz Allen Hamilton, Additional Sponsor U.S. Army

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 folks and other engineering disciplines in cross discipline teams to imagine, develop and start design on a solution to a defined challenge. The purpose of SASEhack is to develop and engage our CS/IT members and connect them to technology companies. The top teams will receive awards and recognition, but every participant can benefit from the experience by working with other team members and mentors from our sponsors: Booz Allen Hamilton is the lead sponsor of this event with additional sponsorship from the U.S. Army. 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 (undergrad or grad)!

To signup for the 2017 SASEhack, you must complete registration through both links:

For NC registration, choose the FREE "Collegiate Career Fair Plus SASEhack" option OR choose the "Collegiate Full Conference Plus SASEhack" option if you would like to attend conference sessions in addition to SASEhack.
