Sponsors have the honor of giving valuable feedback to students who have aspirations in the technological and scientifc fields. By supplying fiscal support, prizes, or even mentors to the event, sponsors are contributing to the overall connection between students and the awaiting industry. Sponsors of HackMerced in the past have always enjoyed their choice to support HackMerced and, in most cases, have continued their partnership with HackMerced. Many of the sponsors would agree that plans were very much reasonable and affordable.
HackMerced has always delivered an excellent sponsorship experience to us the last two years

Hi, I am Christian! I'm a full-time bioengineering student who is extremely interested in connecting unlike concepts such as Machine Learning and Image processing to Biorobotics, Biomechanics, and Biotechnology. However, I hope to expand my knowledge through multiple fields such as Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mechnical Engineering, and Materials Science Engineering in hopes of being able to uncover and invent technology that can save the lives of many. With that, I am dedicating my whole life to such of an endeavor.
