About the CIC
The Convergence Innovation Competition (CIC) encourages students to create innovative, viable products and experiences whether they are projects for classes, individual classes, or personal passion projects. Convergence areas are determined by our campus, industry, and community partners. Winning entries will include a working end-to-end prototype which operates on converged services, media, networks, services, and platforms as well as a value proposition model. CIC winners go on to commercialization, other competitions, as well as internship and job opportunities strengthened by their competition experience. CIC is an annual event produced by GT-RNOC and the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT).
