Great achievement in ACM-ICPC competition in Central European Region for Poznan University of Technology

Team of our students, Szymon Wolarz, Adam Krasuski and Bartosz Prusak, finished on 15th place in the Central European Region competition in team programming ACM-ICPC.

In the category of technical universities we were on second place, just behind Prague University of Technology, which means that Poznan University of Technology is yet again the best Polish technical university in this competition. It is worth noting that the competition favours non-technical universities, because the tasks given to the participants are more of a theoretical type than taken from practice.

Congratulations to the students and we wish them more successes to come!

The results can be viewed here.
