A hackathon that helps those designing, building, and operating our built environment.

AEC Hackathon online is a multi-week experience of online workshops, hackathon, presentations, and more. This is our first hybrid (online & physical location) event and 45th hackathon.

The AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) Hackathon was created in 2013 to give all designing, building, and maintaining our built environment the opportunity to collaborate with cutting edge technologies and its developers and designers. It’s an experience of geeking at its finest for improving the industries that affect all that live or work in a house or building. It has quickly become a global community of innovators that include all elements of the built environment.
