Rowan students place second in computer programming contestNovember 11, 2009
The Rowan University computer programming team of David Galos, Chris Lewark and Idris Hayward came in second place in the recent Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges (CCSCE) Student Programming Contest held at Villanova University as part of the 25th Annual Eastern Conference.
The CCSCE Collegiate Programming Contest is a competition for undergraduate programming students in which teams are asked to provide solutions to various programming problems as quickly as possible. Five high school teams and 19 college and university teams participated.
“The contest was a great amount of fun. We were given six problems to solve and got to spend a few hours thinking over, scribbling and typing out their solutions. For a programmer, there is no more enjoyable activity,” said Galos, a sophomore computer science major from New Brunswick. Lewark is a junior computer science major from Hamilton, and Hayward is a senior computer science major from Lawnside.
