Big Win for Engineering Majors

This competition was open to all CETA students who had interest in competing. It mainly focused on computer science and engineering skills. The students worked in teams to bring a solution to a current world issue.

The issue the students focused on was clean water. The Dean of CETA, Louis Manzione, said the students were not aware of the issue when they showed up but they were given the challenge and worked for hours to conclude with a fifteen minute presentation.

Twenty-eight students competed, forming seven teams. Three teams made it to the finals at Rentschler Field with UHart students taking home $5000 for first place prize and $2500 for second place. This was a huge success and will not only look good for the students records but as well as the University.
