Reminder: Hacking for Defense informational session today

Submitted by Laura Hohenbary

All faculty are invited to attend an informational session to learn about the Hacking for Defense program from 1-2:30 p.m. Monday, July 15, in the Carl and Mary Ice Conference Room, 1139 Engineering Hall.

From its website, Hacking for Defense is a university-sponsored class that allows students to develop a deep understanding of the problems and needs of government sponsors in the Department of Defense and the intelligence community. In a short time, students rapidly iterate prototypes and produce solutions to sponsors' needs. For universities, it keeps their programs attached to real-world problems and provides students with an experiential opportunity to become more effective in their chosen field, with a body of work to back it up. For government agencies, it allows problem sponsors to increase the speed at which their organization solves specific, mission-critical problems.

If you cannot attend the session but would like more information, please contact Laura Hohenbary at laura8@k-state.edu.
