The hackUST is more than a platform for the students to tackle problems but a platform with a pool of talents with an entrepreneurial mindset who are potential candidates sought after by organizations that are looking for new recruits and creative solutions adaptable for their operations.

With 8 years of development, the hackUST + hardUST has become the largest hackathon held in the Greater China region [News]. It is also one of the most sought-after hackathons by university students around the world.
