Registrations are now open!

Welcome to MHacks

MHacks is a 36-hour hackathon run by University of Michigan students. At MHacks, we want to help you turn your ideas into reality. You're welcome to come with or without a team. We'll provide you with all the resources and mentors you need to help you work on something cool or learn new skills. You'll have the freedom to create a product, learn new techniques for your future work, or just have fun working on a project with friends. Moreover, we will offer you a chance to network with other creators and professionals. For newcomers and veterans alike, MHacks is a weekend experience you won’t want to miss.

Frequently Asked Questions


What happens at a hackathon?

Participants (“hackers”) spend 36 hours working in teams of 1 - 4 people to build or code or design projects (“hacks”) that they’re excited about. There are workshops, mentors, food, swag, and buckets of coffee to guide you along the way. You bring your ideas, and we give you everything you need to make them come to life.

What do people normally make?

Hacks generally fall under one (or more) of the seven cortices: Web Development, Android, iOS, AI/ML, AR/VR, Game Development, and Hardware. Check out the hacks from MHacks 11 on Devpost.

Do I have to know how to code to attend?

Nope! We’ll have lots of resources including workshops and a sweet mentorship system to help beginners get started. We will also dedicate one room to new hackers and have several project ideas to help you get started.

Who runs MHacks?

MHacks is run by a group of dedicated and passionate young people, most of whom are students at the University of Michigan.


What if I don’t have a team or idea?

Not to worry, most people don’t! We have some great activities planned before and during the event to help you meet teammates and start thinking through your ideas.
