ASME 2024 Student Hackathon


The Computer & Information in Engineering (CIE) Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) held past hackathon events at the IDETC/CIE 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 Conferences. These hackathon events provide students and engineering practitioners with a unique opportunity to learn how data science and machine learning techniques can be leveraged to solve real-world engineering problems.

Given the previous resounding successes, the CIE Division will hold the ASME-CIE Hackathon again at the IDETC/CIE 2024 Conference in hybrid settings, both virtual and on-site, as a pre-conference event from Aug. 18-25, 2024.
