Dillard University's (DU) computer science and business majors are preparing to change the world with your help. Our students are embarking on two events this year -- the HBCU Battle of the Brains and the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Convention.
1. HBCU BATTLE OF THE BRAINS - Thursday, March 12, 2020 – Sunday, March 15, 2020 in Austin, TX
Mission: To promote the talented business and STEM students within the African American community while highlighting the benefits of SXSW, as well as the technology industry, in an engaging and dynamic way.
The 2020 HBCU Battle of the Brains competition will pit teams of students from HBCUs around the country to determine which school is the HBCU Battle of the Brains Champion.
Colleges and universities are encouraged to send their best and brightest team representing various schools (Business, Communications, Engineering, Mathematics, Marketing, Public Policy, Science, Technology, etc…). Teams will be required to provide a comprehensive solution to the designated issue.
