A team of two UAEU College of Information Technology students, Khaled Al Nuaimi and Abdullah Al Awadhi, scooped first place in the Computer Programming category in the Emirates Technology and Innovation Competition (ETIC) in Abu Dhabi recently. They were coached to victory by Dr Saad Harous.
ETIC 2017, which ran from April 11 to 13, was jointly organized by Khalifa University and the Ministry of Education. It provided a valuable opportunity for UAE national students to measure their skills against those of their peers from other institutions, gain valuable experience, compete for prizes, engage potential employers, socialize with peers, and develop knowledge in their personal areas of interest.
The competition was an opportunity to discover bright Emirati minds with the capacity to excel in a variety of IT fields. The categories were Computer Programming, Cyber Security, Mobile Applications, Game Development, Drones: Build and Fly, and Electronics: Design and Build. According to the rules, all systems and materials had to be in English, and all problems in the Computer Programming category were to be solved using C, C++, or JAVA.
