Bob Jones University’s intercollegiate computer programming teams placed first and sixth in a regional virtual programming competition Jan. 23.
The winning team was comprised of junior Erick Ross of Greenville, senior Steven Platt of Carmel, Indiana, and senior Elias Watson of Clearwater, Florida.
The contest, which was hosted by the University of North Carolina at Asheville, is associated with the annual Consortium for Computing Sciences-Southeastern Region regional conference and more than 30 teams from seven states competed over a three-hour period. The winner was determined by the number of problems solved correctly.
BJU has participated in the CCSC-SE programming contest since 2002. In addition, contest management software designed by BJU faculty and students has been used to manage the contest for approximately 15 years.
The college is scheduled to host next year’s CCSC-SE contest on Jan. 29, 2022.
