Competing for the first time, a Charles Sturt University (CSU) team has ranked in the top eleven teams within Australia in the 2017 IEEEXtreme 11.0 global computer programming competition.
IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE student members, advised and proctored by an IEEE member, compete to solve a set of programming problems within 24 hours.
“Considering this was the first time a CSU team had participated, I was pleasantly surprised with the results,” Dr Kabir said.
“The competition took place in October and we recently received the official results.
“Charles Sturt University computer science courses are hands-on and give students opportunities to work on a project in industry to see how learnings can be applied to real scenarios.
“The results these students achieved in the IEEEXtreme 11.0 programming competition demonstrates how our courses provide a high standard of professional skills and hands-on experiences to ensure graduates are industry-ready.”
