On Sunday 26th November, two DCU computing undergraduate teams competed in the Northwestern Europe Regional Contest (NWERC) at University of Bath in the UK as part of the World ACM ICPC competition. Together with Irish undergraduate teams from Trinity, Maynooth and Queens they competed against university teams from 60 different institutions from 10 different countries in North West Europe.

The DCU team of ‘-= [B]ichael [B] [B]iggins =-’ won the ‘Irish’ title at the competition and placed an impressive 11th out of 42 UK and Irish teams, including teams from Cambridge and Oxford.
