UVA Students to Compete in International Computer Science Challenge

Posted: Updated:

A team of University of Virginia students will compete in an international computer science challenge this summer.

Third-year Neal Milstein and second-years Derek Morris and Carson Wang will face off with programmers from around the world in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The team's goal is to try and solve as many computer science problems as they can in a five-hour time limit.

"I think it's important to create this sort of culture at UVA in the computer science department of competition or constantly trying to improve your skills in terms of problem solving," said Neal Milstein, programming contest finalist. "I think it really hones our programming skills."

The students have been practicing an average of five hours a week for the competition in July.
