UK Teams Participate in IEEE Programming Competition

 

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) student branch participated in the global IEEE Xtreme 24-Hour Programming Competition on October 21-22. Eight UK teams of three students each competed in the event and one UK team placed 31st out of over 1,500 teams.


 IEEE UK Student Branch Counselor Regina Hannemann was pleased with the teams’ performance as well as the role the competition plays in enhancing student learning.


“Many of the UK students learned a lot about algorithms and problem solving during this marathon while having a fun time with their friends,” she said.
