Whether you are just interested in learning more about cybersecurity and AITP, or would like to test your skills in real attack defense scenarios, this is a fun learning experience for all skill levels.
ITaP Data Science

(Cancelled due to technical difficulties)

Participants will be presented with a large dataset. They will need to process, extract from, and transform that dataset. They will need to account for any missing data, conduct exploratory analysis, produce informative visualizations, and answer some high level questions. This challenge will use one of the campus HPC clusters.

(Cancelled due to technical difficulties)

Students will compile and run a real life scientific application using Purdue's supercomputers. The process is computationally intensive and will introduce competitors to the realm of high-performance computing (clusters, schedulers, parallelization, etc.).
B01lers & WiCys Come and try your hand at some offensive security challenges! Test your skills with command injection, pwning, and much more!
