BUET @ ACM ICPC:
The CSE department of BUET has participated in nine consecutive ACM International Collegiate Progaramming Contests between 1998 and 2005. Very few universities across the world have comparable participation record. The best result came in 2000, when the BUET team achieved the 11th position in the final standings, beating the big names like MIT, Stanford and other US universities. BUET has also been regional champions or runner-ups in South Asia in the nine years of its participation.
BUET also hosted regional contests for the Dhaka site several times.
CSE BUET graduates have also achieved success in the organizational area of ACM ICPC. Shahriar Manzoor of CSE Batch 94 has the honor of being selected an ACM ICPC World Finals judge for four consecutive years (2003-2006). Shahriar Manzoor and another graduate of CSE Batch 97 Md. Kamruzzaman are members of the Elite Problem setters’ Panel of Valladolid Online Judge. This site received an award from ACM for its contribution in the training and popularization of programming contest around the world.
Finally, Prof. M. Kaykobad led the BUET team as its coach to the world finals seven times in a row, an achievement surpassed by few coaches. He was awarded the Best Coach award in 2002 ACM ICPC World finals in Honolulu.
