Doshisha University Takes First Place in Web Programming Contest
A team from Doshisha University in Kyotanabe-Shi, Japan won the IEEE Computer Society Web Programming Competition (CHC61) with its website on The Unknown History and Technology of MARS.
CHC61 encouraged teams of four undergraduate students to work together as a team to design, research, and implement a high-quality website. With a theme of “Unsung Heroes”, the aim of the competition was to make students aware of the rich and exciting history of the computer as well as stress the importance of transferable skills such as time management and the division of a major task among a group of people.
“The judges commented on the impressive visual design of Doshisha University’s site. They used a variety of web design techniques to produce a fun, interesting and well designed site, “ said Dr. Alan Clements, chair of the competition and a professor at the University of Teesside in Teesside, UK.
Nearly 120 teams from fifty-six universities in twenty-seven countries vied for a First Place prize of $10,000, generously provided by Microsoft.
