Other Programming Contests

ACM Programming Competition

Every year, the Association for Computing Machinery, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, sponsors an international programming competition. This competition challenges students to write correct solutions to as many problems as possible in a fixed amount of time. The problems are difficult and the students must work in teams to solve them using the programming language Java.

The computer science department works with students in order to enter a team into the ACM Programming Competition. For more information on the competition, visit the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest website. For more information on how to become involved with the ACM student chapter at VCU, visit the Student Organizations Directory.
