For Students, By Students

HyperX offers graduate and undergraduate students a cross-disciplinary and collaborative space to explore, develop, and experiment with emerging technologies. Students may work either on ideas they bring or on industry projects defined by corporate and institutional sponsors.

Explore Emerging Tech

Gain access to Hub equipment and test beds to test and learn about real-world applications for new technologies such as AI, IoT, AR, VR, Blockchain and more.

Make Industry Connections

Work with industry leaders, mentors, and successful entrepreneurs to learn about key challenges and problems to solve.

Develop New Skills

Take advantage of experiential learning with mentors, guest speakers, and Hub staff.

No experience required.

We actively seek diversity in thinking and perspectives and invite all majors from across the UW Madison campus to explore their own ideas for interesting and intriguing applications for emerging technologies.
