the ICPC programming competition is a very old world-wide programming competition for undergraduates. it was around when i went to school! i was on our school's programming team. (yay miami university!) we didn't do that great, but it was a fun experience, and i learned a lot of programming techniques.

we have competed two years now, after a long break. check out the 2020 teams and the 2019 teams.

we are always recruiting new members! they key requirement is that you are an undergraduate.

team composition

each team is composed of 3 members. we can take 5 teams to the regional competition. please check the eligibility tree to see if you can participate. your major is NOT a factor in eligibility!
