BrickHack is a multidisciplinary group of students who are passionate about running hackathons.

We love the challenge of organizing great events through careful planning, empathy, and a little bit of luck. Every year, we come together to organize several hackathon events for the students of RIT and beyond.

A hackathon is a “hacking marathon” in which teams or individuals have a specified time frame to create something from nothing. These events foster creative problem solving, teamwork, and innovative thinking skills.

Our flagship event is BrickHack, a yearly 24-hour hackathon. For more information about the BrickHack event, check out our events.

Nope! Having prior experience with hackathons is appreciated but not a requirement.

What you do with BrickHack will vary depending upon the team that you join.


We won't lie— putting on a yearly hackathon event takes quite a bit of work. However, we promote a flexible environment to allow our team members to balance being in the club with school and work.

The process of preparing, advertising, and running hackathons will develop your organizational, interpersonal, and leadership skills.

Aside from the recruiting jargon, it can be really great to have a consistent project to work on throughout the year. Something you can put time into, and at the end be proud of what you've worked towards. (The résumé bump is nice too!)

We've got you covered.
