All India Council for Technical Education!

We are happy to inform you about the 3rd edition of IBM’s marquee hackathon “IBM Hack Challenge 2020”. In this edition due to the unique situation created because of Covid-19, IBM has introduced an online digital Boot camp of around 15 hours to teach students of Engineering/ MCA colleges (Any year/ branch), which will make them learn Cloud and Artificial Intelligence with hands-on labs, also offers them to obtain 3-digital badges in the process of learning. Once the student completes the learning, they will be working on IBM provided problem statements aimed at solutions on societal requirements due to Covid-19, with the help of an online mentor to support in developing the projects.

The event is completely no cost to participants, and besides online learning, the students also get free access to IBM software, IBM Cloud, Courseware, and digital badges through the global IBM Academic Initiative program, a completely free initiative for academia (faculty and students).
