International Programming Competition

The International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is an algorithmic programming contest for college students. Teams of three, representing their university, work to solve the most real-world problems, fostering collaboration, creativity, innovation, and the ability to perform under pressure. Through training and competition, teams challenge each other to raise the bar on the possible. Quite simply, it is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world.

Each year, Kennesaw State University College of Computing and Software Engineering will host a total of 65+ teams which includes teams from Kennesaw State University.

Raspberry Pi Workshops

CCSE offers several Raspberry Pi Teacher Workshops each year. Teachers complete a "guided experimentation" project with a Raspberry Pi, then design and complete a project of their own. Finally, they work with others to complete a group project of their own design. Workshop participants take away a teacher kit containing a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, case, power supply, and parts pack to use in their classrooms. The workshops are offered free of charge to qualified teachers.

CCSE Open House

Join us at Open House for information on all of CCSE's programs and why you should consider computing or technology! Did you know that 58% of all STEM jobs are in computing yet only 8% of STEM graduates have a computing degree? CCSE provides a variety of programs and concentrations for students to explore so there's something for everybody!
