Posted: 30/01/2013 Contributor: Engr. Arnold N. Santos
The 1st Annual C-Programming Competition organized by the Electrical & Electronics Engineering section propelled Engineering students to a new level of enthusiasms for extra-curricular activities as they deviate from normal classroom activities to a more challenging learning experience.
The tilt which was held at the Telecommunications Laboratory on 28th January 2013 attracted 26 engineering students, mostly on their diploma first level, to put to test their C-programming skills. The students were grouped into teams of two and were given five problems which they attempted to analyze and solve within 100 minutes. The problems included simple questions in logical formations to find solutions to some common engineering problems.
After the grueling competition, the three frontrunner teams who submitted the most number of correct solutions were declared winners.

All participating students were awarded certificate of participation and were also equally commended for their audacity to go out of their habitual routines to take this challenge.
This competition which aims to develop the students’ logical thinking, problem solving skills and ability to work in a team shall be convened annually to select and prepare the students for inter-collegiate programming competitions inside and outside the Sultanate. More specifically, the winners of this year’s competition will represent ICT in the Annual Gulf Programming Contest (GPC) which is slated to be held in United Arab Emirates in March 2013.
