Xilinx-Women@NTU Hackathon 2019

Xilinx Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. and Women@NTU have teamed up to organize the first all-female hackathon in Singapore.  We don’t have to emphasize that Tech is a hot sector, it might be the hottest sector currently. And what better opportunities to be part or even lead this megatrend than to join this first all-female hackathon right at your doorstep!

We are calling out for all female students who are passionate about technology and love to learn through hands-on experiences. You and your team will be challenged to come out with innovative solutions to a series of engineering challenges!

No prior experience is required – Xilinx engineers will be on-site to provide coaching to the participants prior to the hackathon.

The event will be opened by Guest of Honour – MOE Second Permanent Secretary Ms. Lai Wei Lin. Guess what…there are attractive prizes to be won and internship opportunities with Xilinx too!​ ​
