Programmers show off their teamworking skills


Oxford entered nine teams of students in UKIEPC, a contest testing programming skills, problem solving and teamwork. Our Computer Science ‘Tractor_Specialists team came third out of the 190 teams.

UKIEPC is effectively a first round competition held in the UK and Ireland to help universities to choose which teams to send to the Northwestern Europe European Regional Contest of the international ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest.

In the contest, teams of up to three students try to solve as many programming problems as possible from a given problem set, using only one computer.

Below are the teams, their Computer Science members, and where they ranked in UKIEPC.
