IEEE Monash Student Branch and Melbourne University Student Branch in Victoria jointly organized IEEE Xtreme 14.0, a 24-hour Global Programming Competition on 24th October. Sina Mansour (Vice-Chair, Melbourne University SB) was the Victorian Section Lead Ambassador for the event and Ardel Bangco (Chair, Monash Student Branch) acted as Main Event Organizer.
A total of seven teams from both universities participated in the event. The #MuMonash team from Monash University topped the Victorian Section and ranked second among Australian teams. The global ranking for this team is currently #69.
The #MuMonash team will receive a local Victorian Section cash prize once the final statistics from Region 10 Xtreme (Asia Pacific) are received.
We are hoping to have more teams next year from various universities in Victoria. The proctors were happy to be involved in this event and extended their support for future events.
