IEEE Carleton is a student run Branch that provides many services such as workshops, technical presentations, career networking events, and more. All engineering students are invited to attend or volunteer for any of our events.
The open-source model is a decentralized development model that encourages open collaboration. A main principle of open-source software development is peer production, with products such as source code, blueprints, and documentation freely available to the public. The open-source movement in software began as a response to the limitations of proprietary code. The model is used for projects such as in open-source appropriate technologies, and open-source drug discovery.
CUHacking is Carleton University’s first large-scale hackathon, and the largest hackathon in Ottawa. It will take place over 24 hours. Around 300 students participate. The IEEE Carleton branch takes a leadership role to organize this annual event with the help of our office executives and volunteers.CUHacking Website
