We are excited to announce the 11th annual NYUAD International Hackathon for Social Good which will focus on one of the most promising technologies of our time, Quantum Computing (QC). The event will be held in person at NYUAD’s Conference Center from April 27, 2023, to May 1, 2023.

Since quantum computing is expected to revolutionize the world as we know it, we need to make sure that our hackathon participants are equipped with the necessary skills needed for QC and empower a new generation of students to use the most advanced quantum hardware. Students will utilize these acquired new QC skills for social good and make a positive impact on the future of our society, as quantum computers are capable of solving hard computational problems.

NYUAD is also excited about the establishment of the NYUAD Center for Quantum and Topological Systems. We are hopeful that this Hackathon will provide opportunities for Quantum Computing networking and future research and project collaborations with the NYUAD Center for Quantum and Topological Systems.

The NYUAD Hackathon participants will learn about quantum computing and use quantum-based technologies while developing their own solutions and working in cross-disciplinary and diverse global teams.

During the NYUAD hackathon, we will form cross-disciplinary global teams (5 students per team) building solutions to challenging problems we are facing today using Quantum Computing technologies.
