UpGrad Campus Hackathon by IIT Bombay is an open-ended product hackathon wherein you are given two broad fields:

1. Smart Education- Any idea related to innovation in the field of education. 

2. Sustainability- https://www.mcgill.ca/sustainability/files/sustainability/what-is-sustainability.pdf

The participants will have to choose any one of the two fields. The hackathon will consist of two steps:

1. Selecting a problem of interest in that field and

2. Coming up with plausible solutions in the form of a product.

Both these steps will carry equal weightage during the final evaluation. The problem and product should impact the general public and have direct implications in their day-to-day lives.
