Connecticut Skills Challenge 2015-2016

The Connecticut Skills Challenge connects talented, tech savvy students to Connecticut’s hottest technology companies

About the Skills Challenge

The Connecticut Skills Challenge provides tech-savvy students with the opportunity to get noticed.

Through participation in the Connecticut Skills Challenge (coding and engineering contest) students from universities and colleges are tested on their skills. Once challenged, students are included in an online directory where tech companies search for local talent and invited to our Job Fairs.

The Challenge Finals

Join us on December 3, 2016 at the Yale School of Management for the Coding Skills Challenge Final and Job Fair.
