InnovaIT Competition

The 4th annual InnovaIT Competition invites you to dream up an innovative Mobile or IoT App and join other mobile app development enthusiasts to bring your app ideas to life.

The annual IT Innovation Competition is a faculty-led event that seeks to foster technology entrepreneurship and innovation among undergraduate students in the Midwest region (Marquette University, University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh,  WCTC, etc.). Participating students will come up with an innovative technology idea that has a good commercial opportunity and pitch their idea in the first round.

10 finalists are selected after the initial proposal submission to build working prototypes of their solution of choice. Students can either form teams or work as individuals to build a working prototype of the idea through a series of “hack-a-thon” sessions, tutorials and individual work. Majority of the participating students usually have very minimal programming experience at the beginning of the journey.

As they work on their startup projects, with support from their faculty mentors or industry coaches, they gain practical experience regarding how to solve real life problems through applied theory.

Marquette joins eduroam

Marquette is now a member of “eduroam”, a service that allows anyone affiliated with Marquette to gain wireless network access at 5,500+ institutions connected to eduroam.  It also allows visitors from eduroam member institutions access to our Marquette wireless network without the need for a guest account.

Who is Part of eduroam?

Participating institutions include several U.S. Jesuit schools and many local universities such as the University of Wisconsin system schools. Before travelling, check to see if the campus you are visiting is an eduroam member.

How Do I Use eduroam While Away from Marquette?

Logging on while at a participating institution is often as easy as opening your wireless connections, choosing the eduroam network by name, and then entering your Marquette email address and password.

Can I Test eduroam at Marquette Before I Leave?

Marquette users can test the eduroam connection on Marquette’s campus before traveling to verify that all settings are correct.

  1. While on the Marquette campus and near a wireless hotspot, open your wireless connections and select the eduroam network name.
  2. You are prompted for a username and password. Enter your Marquette email address (e.g., firstname.lastname@marquette.edu) and password. Please note that you must enter your full email address, including @marquette.edu.
  3. If this is your first time connecting, you will be prompted to accept or download the eduroam certificate. This is a self-signed certificate used to ensure you’re connecting to the correct network. Once the certificate is accepted, you will be authenticated using your credentials.
  4. If successfully authenticated, you will be placed on the eduroam wireless network. This network is limited to web browsing (i.e., you will not have access to student, faculty or staff resources).
  5. Once you have successfully connected to eduroam, be sure to switch back to your standard Marquette wireless setup.Marquette University users should not use eduroam regularly on Marquette’s campus network.
