In our bid to home grow disruptors and innovators, University of Westminster has been running Hackathon events for nearly a decade. Originating from the idea of computer coders coming together to literally ‘hack’ the system, Westminster Hackathon events go one step further, to address problems across our academic disciplines – from legal to humanities. On the day of the event, student teams are presented with real-world industry problems which they work on under pressurised, timed conditions. At the end of the day, they present their final solutions or ‘pitches’ to a panel of expert judges, from a variety of public, private and third sector organisations.
