IEEE Extreme competition
This year three CS and SE students
formed a team “RedWolves” to compete in
the IEEE EXTREME 8.0 programming competition. This was the first time that our
students have represented PSU from men’s
college. A total of 21 teams par ticipated
from Sau di universities including KSU,
K AUST, King Abdul Aziz Universit y and PSU.
Team “RedWolves” from PSU men’s college totaled 492.35 points earning them
the second place among their Saudi peers.
These students are yet to complete “CS210
Data Structures” course which is an essential requirement for solving IEEE EXTREME
problems.
Congratulations for team “RedWolves”,
CCIS and PSU on this achievement.
