About this event

GE Renewable Energy is recruiting students to help imagine new services and innovative solutions for hydropower with its internal hydro teams, at its first hackathon. The objective: gather the best profiles to create the Aqua Agents special unit and reinvent hydropower!

Discover the official website of the Aqua Agents: The Hackathon >>

Each student will join a team composed of GE Renewable Energy employees, and will be assigned to one of the 3 following national priority missions:

  • The power of data: deep dive into GE hydro plants data and imagine new services

  • Industry 4.0 challenge: reinvent hydro plants by integrating digital solutions into the current processes

  • The silence of the plants: imagine the quietest system for the plant to avoid disturbing civilians.

👥What profiles are we looking for? Engineers, designers, and business school students.

📍Where and when? The hackathon will take place on September 24, 25 & 26 during the WaterPower Canada Conference in Montreal.
