Competitive Programming in LU

Welcome to the Competitive Programming page of Leading University. We conduct regular workshops to sharpen the problem-solving skills of our students. If you want to try your luck in programming contests, you have arrived in the right place.

Our Activities

Department of Computer Science & Engineering conducts workshops and arranges contests through out the year. Leading University Computer Club (LUCC) also arranges several intra- and inter-university programming contests every year.

Junior Workshop

  • The Junior Programming Workshop starts in the first week of July. Students of 1st and 2nd year of BSc programs are eligible for this workshop. The workshop is conducted in 2 phases. Tentative time-line for the 2-phase workshop is:
    * Phase-1: July – November
    * Phase-2: December – April
    Students have to go through a rigorous selection process for joining this workshop. Around 40 students are selected for the workshop.
  • Attendance in the workshop is must. If any student fails to attend two consecutive classes (without a valid reason), (s)he will be expelled from the workshop with no refund.
  • If any student do not complete the home-works / participate in the contests regularly, (s)he might also be considered for expulsion (based on workshop instructor’s decision).
  • Students who have fulfilled certain criteria after phase-1, will be advanced to phase-2 automatically. They do not have to pay for phase-2. Others have to sit for selection exams again, and have to enroll in phase-2 (if selected) again.

** We reserve few seats for the students of local schools and colleges in the junior workshop. If you are studying in school/college and want to participate in IOI, contact with the Head of the CSE Department.

Senior Workshop

  • Students who complete both phases of the junior workshop successfully, are promoted to the Senior Workshop. Senior workshops are conducted by highly qualified trainers from or outside of Leading University.
  • Only the students of senior workshop are considered to take part in national contests and ICPCs. The university authority provides funds for participating in the programming contests.
