From February 24–March 2, 2024, the INFO College will be hosting the annual UMD Info Challenge, where students from across UMD and the State of Maryland come together to solve real-world information challenges and win prizes! Participants gain valuable team-building and resume-building skills, and have the opportunity to network with top companies.

The theme of Info Challenge 2024 is “The Data of Global Change” and will offer challenges in data analytics, design, security, and project management (new for IC24!). No prior data analysis experience is needed! Student participants will work in person with their teams on kick-off day, then work remotely throughout the week, and present their final projects in person to a panel of judges on March 2. The day will end with a Showcase Event where teams will show off their final projects to friends, family, and other information enthusiasts, followed by the IC24 Awards Ceremony.
