International Collegiate Programming Contest

Teams from RIT compete in International Collegiate Programming Contest.

Several teams from the Department of Computer Science have spent the past month participating in the International Collegiate Programming Competition. The first stage in this journey was a qualifying competition at RIT among seven teams. The top four teams moved on to the regional qualifying competition at Hamilton College on October 26th. RIT took positions 1 ,2, 4, and 9 with the top team solving all problems with more than an hour to spare!

This team consisting of RIT students Ayana Adylova, Steven Landau, Andrew Searns, and coached by professors Michael Mior and Alexander G. Ororbia II continued to the Northeast North America regional contest hosted at RIT on November 9th. The team achieved an impressive seventh place behind teams from MIT, Harvard, and other top schools. Unfortunately the team will not be moving on the next round of the competition, but these students should be congratulated for their impressive performance!
