San Diego’s largest
hardware focused hackathon

April 13 - 14


H.A.R.D. Hack is a hardware hackathon that HKN holds annually in collaboration with IEEE and Triton Neurotech. During this 36 hour Hackathon, participants across experience levels have the opportunity to work in teams to develop a prototype or proof-of-concept project related to a given theme and track which will be announced closer to the event.

The event features technical and professional workshops, networking opportunities and social events for participants to get to know each other, learn about hardware and embedded systems prototyping and have a great time having fun with friends during the weekend. Top builds that align with the project theme will earn a prize! In previous years, winning teams have won speakers, mice, and other fun tech.

Group up into teams of 4 and compete with your fellow engineering students overnight. Anyone can attend, regardless of skill level, major, or university. We provide the materials, tools, and sustenance (food) needed to make a hardware hack! Come out and build something cool!
