EMECS-thon is an embedded systems marathon that is organized by EMECS students. Participating teams have 48 hours to develop an embedded system project from scratch. The event is carried out simultaneously in the universities of the EMECS consortium as well as several other universities each year.
Participating teams consist of up to three students. Each team has the flexibility to choose a project topic of their own interest. The event takes place in the fully equipped laboratories of each university. In order to allow the participants to devote the maximum amount of time possible to their projects all meals are provided.
