In a contest which is considered as one of the biggest and most important programming contests, the Syrian team ‘Titans’ that represents Tishreen University won the fourth position at the Syrian Collegiate Programming Contest.
Consequently, it earned for the second time successively the opportunity to advance to the international contest that will be held next summer 2014 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
The contest took place on 23 November 2013 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt with the participation of 109 teams representing 60 universities from 12 Arab countries.
The first and second positions went to two Egyptian teams, while the third position went to a Jordanian team. By this, the number of teams that will participate in the international contest is six teams (one Syrian team, three Egyptian teams, one Jordanian team and one Lebanese team).
The Syrian participation in the regional contest, which came as a higher level after the Syrian Collegiate Programming Contest that took place at an earlier time in Lattakia, is organized by the Syrian Computer Society (SCS) and Syriatel.
