TecHacks, a student-run hackathon, facilitated by Chitkara University in Punjab, was founded in 2019 by the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering with 110 participants and expanded to 350 participants in 2020. TecHacks 3.0, as a hybrid Open-source hackathon, will give participants from various technical backgrounds the opportunity to engage with a wonderful community of hackers while also providing seminars and mentorship from industry leaders.


Our primary goal is to help solve problems. Modern challenges necessitate modern solutions, and young hackers from colleges and universities have a lot to offer in this arena. They require a platform to encourage them to contribute their talents. We want to provide them a level playing field to compete with other hackers and come up with innovative ideas.
