Fifth NUST Annual Programming Competition goes virtual

The fifth edition of the NUST Annual Programming Competition recently took place virtually, under the theme: “Creating a knowledge based society through reasoning about computer programs for the 4IR.” The Competition is an annual event, which began in 2015 as an initiative by the Faculty of Computing and Informatics (FCI), to create awareness among schools on the importance of programming and problem-solving.

It aims to encourage learners to take up studies in the computing field. The competition also targets tertiary students in Namibia. This year, the event attracted 83 participants of which 55 were high school learners.

The schools represented were Acacia High; Windhoek Technical High; Delta; St Georges Diocesan; Concordia; St Paul’s College; Rocky Crest High, and Deutsche Höhere Privatschule. The high school learners were coached over several weeks by their teachers, as well as the FCI staff and students. Thirty-three (33) participants were students from three tertiary institutions: International University of Management (IUM), University of Namibia (UNAM), and NUST who competed in the Tertiary Institution Category.

Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC) sponsored this prestigious event. The winners walked away with prices which included tablets, Wi-Fi devices, hard drives, wireless speakers and N$3 000 for the winning team, N$5 000 for the first runner-up and N$3 000 for the second runner-up.

The overall winners of the fifth NUST Annual Programming Competition in the High School Category are St George’s Diocesan, followed by Delta and St Paul’s College occupying the third place. In the tertiary institution’s category, the winners were IUM, followed by NUST in the second and third categories.
