Know Thy Competition

It's time to take your knack for the hack, and put it to good use. With participation from colleges across the nation and developers agnostic to languages and frameworks, you'll not only be brainstroming, but also witnessing a plethora of cool ideas. To add to the experience, we have several workshops and guest lectures being taken up by the industry experts.

The hack is only a small part of the competition. The real spirit lies in building your network in the growing tech community and collaborating with some of the finest minds of the nation. Just remember, taking the Hackathons too seriously defeats the purpose. Save the seriousness for pitching to investors. Hackathons are supposed to be exciting and worthwhile. Keeping an open mind will open new doors, help build new relationships and acquire new skills.

This is the cornerstone of East India's largest hackathon. This is HACK-A-BIT.

The Institution

For over five decades, BIT Mesra (located 16 kms from Ranchi, the Jharkhand state-capital)has been engaged in nurturing minds through a rich heritage of academic excellence. Essentially a hub of bustling student activities, the beautiful campus has been a second-home to thousands of students in their journey to challenge the times. Established in 1955 by the visionary-industrialist Mr. B.M. Birla, it is today one of the most premier engineering destinations in India. Keeping up with the times has never been enough at BIT as it has mostly been either at the top of ranking surveys or the first among initiators of path-breaking ideas.

From the introduction of new academic programmes to re-structuring the current ones, from improving infrastructure to upgrading teaching skills, the students' welfare has always been the focal point in BIT's larger picture. As a result, the Institute enjoys an unsurpassed reputation in academia and corporate circles being the preferred manpower source for many industries not only in India but also abroad. BIT Mesra had been conceived with a vision to be recognized as a world-class learning institution for engineering and technology. But it has moved beyond the fulfilment of a scholastic promise to re-defining education in the new age through creation of aptitude and comprehensive intelligence. Targets are achieved every day, only to make space for newer dreams.

Margaret says 'Hello!'

Meet Margaret, the Penguin Cosmonaut. She's this chubby little Penguin who dreamt high and broke all stereotypes and exceeded all expectations with her achievements.

She's named in honour of NASA's computer scientist Margaret Hamilton.

She was the director of the Software Engineering division of MIT, which developed on flight software for the Apollo 11, becoming the woman responsible for putting 'man' on the moon.

Just like our mascot, she defied stereotypes and made immense contributions to the progress of humanity, at a time when it was difficult for women to do so. Margaret, the Penguin, stands for the same cause of women in tech.
