The 2022 SITAC competition successfully culminated with the grand finale on 5/15/2022. Twenty teams representing a mix of graduate students from University of Washington, Seattle University, Minnesota State University and Carnegie Mellon University participated in this year's competition. Thirteen made it to the final presentations. Just like the 2021 competition, the entire 2022 competition was conducted in an online format due to COVID restrictions, yet the event saw the same enthusiasm and dedication from students, mentors and everybody else involved.

“An architect is like an airline pilot, who might not look busy all of the time but use decades of experience to constantly monitor the situation, taking immediate action if they see or hear something out of the ordinary."
A group of senior IT professionals got together in 2015 to create a competition that is a one of a kind opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students.
The past six years have shown that the competition adds valuable job skills to the student's repertoire. Teams compete to develop an architectural solution for a real world problem, guided by practicing professionals from the industry.
