UA Engineering students win in multiple categories at UA-hosted computer extravaganza.

Hundreds of students spent 36 hours at Hack Arizona developing design hacks and vying for prizes and the attention of representatives from sponsoring companies such as Amazon, Cisco, Intuit, Raytheon and State Farm.

The grand prize went to UA computer science and electrical engineering major Mark Omo and collaborator James Rowley. Omo and Rowley produced Hack Drone Flight Area Control, a scalable drone management system allowing users to efficiently delegate tasks to fleets of varied unmanned aerial vehicles.
