Students from across the world come to MHacks to build amazing things, transform dreams into realities, and to meet others with the same level of passion to build their future. MHacks is for creators.

Students spend 36 hours building anything they can imagine, and take breaks to interact with technology visionaries, founders, and find new mentors. They meet with the hottest, most sough-after companies in the world who vie for hackers' attention. For MHacks, students give up a weekend of partying to invest a weekend in their personal growth by learning something new, and creating solutions to problems they see in the world. 

MHacks isn't just a hackathon -- it's a community of people who have ideas and build them.

- Teams may include up to four members.

- All hacks must be built at MHacks 8 by registered participants. Unregistered hackers will not be allowed to participate.

- Remote participation is not allowed.


Judging will be divided into seven different categories of hacks. Upon completion of their hack, participants will self-designate the best category in which they wish to be judged. These seven categories are based on the cortex model of MHacks:

    • iOS
    • Android
    • Web Development
    • VR/Game Design
    • Hardware
    • Social Impact
    • Miscellaneous


Students and teams may not enter into more than one of the above seven categories. To promote fairness, students must briefly justify the category they chose.
