UMD Students at DigiKey Competition!

Computer Science majors at UMD recently competed in the DigiKey Collegiate Computing Competition.  Seven UMD students divided into two teams and traveled to Thief River Falls to participate in the annual competition hosted by the Digikey corporation.  The competition consisted of three rounds:  Small programing problems, written "world" problems, and longer programming problems.  One of UMD's teams was able to get 4th place in the competition, out of the 15 teams present.  In addition to the main event, the students also toured Digikey's facilities and were updated on what interning or working at Digikey would be like.  Everyone had a good time, and thanked Digikey for their hospitality!
