UM holds first Intellectual Hackathon

The University of Macau (UM) held its first Intellectual Hackathon in its Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship recently. Co-organised by the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Centre for Teaching and Learning Enhancement, and the Information and Communication Technology Office, and sponsored by the Bank of China Macau Branch, the competition attracted 15 teams from various local educational institutions, including UM, Pui Ching Middle School, and Keang Peng School.

Two teams from UM, namely ‘DDG’ and ‘Expedition’, won the first prize. Two other teams from UM, namely ‘uniTeam’ and ‘SmartUMAC’, won the Outstanding Prize. A team from UM and a team from Pui Ching Middle School, namely ‘Pui Ching Normal Students’, won the Innovative Prize.

The event aimed to provide a platform for students from different disciplines to exchange ideas and generate innovative solutions for challenges associated with living and learning on campus. In addition to the competition, the organisers held a Mobile APP Training Camp and a technical briefing session for interested students earlier this month. During the competition, participating teams were required to develop an application prototype based on the UM Open Data API Platform within 24 hours, as well as to present and demonstrate their works and answer questions from the judges.


經過24小時激烈的角逐,最後由澳大的“DDG”和“Expedition”團隊奪得一等獎,優異獎由澳大的“uniTeam”及“SmartUMAC”獲得,最佳創意獎則分別由澳大的“開開心心學程式”及培正中學的“Pui Ching Normal Students”團隊奪得 。
