SJR State students participate in Intercollegiate Programming Competition

Intercollegiate Programming Competition, Students

Four St. Johns River State College computer science students recently participated in the Intercollegiate Programming Competition hosted by Seminole State College of Florida. The statewide competition challenged 33 students to test their knowledge of computer programming and coding. Students were given eight computer programming problems and were expected to determine the best way to generate the correct results for each.

In preparation for the competition, the head of SJR State’s computer science program Jonathan Blair, reached out to 100 students to create a College-wide contest. John Ryan, Alexandra Smith and Dylan Dodd won first, second and third place, respectively, at the conclusion of the College’s competition. They joined graduating student Alexander Martin at the Intercollegiate Programming Competition at Seminole State College. Dodd finished the state competition in fifth place, while Martin took ninth.

SJR State offers two-year Associate in Science degrees in computer information technology, computer network engineering technology, computer programming and analysis and Internet services technology. For more information, call (386) 312-4183.
