Birzeit University won first place among Palestinian competitors, and 93rd internationally in the annual “IEEEXTREME” competition, held by the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology “IEEE”, based in the United States.

The competition, sponsored by Experts Turnkey Solutions and the Deanship of Students Affairs, was hosted at Birzeit’s  Nejjad Zeenni Center of Excellence in Information Technology. Students competed in a 24-hour time spam against each other to solve a set of programming problems.

All teams received the same problems to solve without direct outside consultation. Teams don’t need to tackle every problem, but the more they solve, the more points they score.
