Six student computer programming teams from Montana Tech competed in the 2014  ACM Montana Programming Contest on September 19th on the campus of Montana State University in Bozeman. One of the Montana Tech teams placed first and another team received honorable mention. The competition saw 16 teams from Montana Tech and Montana State University. The team of Justin Emge, Adam Cass, and Ben Butcher placed 1st and the team of Hathem Memmi, Jake Jones, and Casey Flynn received honorable mention.

 

The contest challenges teams of three university students to use their programming skills and rely on their mental endurance to solve complex, real world problems under a grueling five-hour deadline. At the competition, the teams were given six problems to solve with a goal of solving as many problems as possible during the contest period. The solutions to the problems must be submitted as programs in one of the programming languages Java, C, or C++. Tech’s winning team solved all problems in under 3 hours.

 

Montana Tech’s top teams will next compete at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on Saturday, November 8 as part of the Rocky Mountain Regional competition of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest.

ACM005

The first ACM club of the year was well attended by both returning and new students. Perhaps it was the free pizza that got the 25 members to attend the first meeting of the year on September 9th. The members discussed the upcoming Homecoming events, including the bed race (they placed 2nd this year!), royalty, and the Race to the M. Other activities they discussed were LAN Parties, Competitive Programming practices and competitions, and a spring industry trip.
