OEC 2014 is pleased to announce the first ever OEC programming competition. In this competition competitors will be given a previously undisclosed problem that is related to the competition theme and have the weekend to complete the task. The final project will be marked on both effectiveness and efficiency.


The goal of the Programming category is to encourage software engineering students to produce a piece of industry-quality software with all of the proper user and administrative documents. The teams will use their software development skills, their technical writing abilities, and their project management skills to design a solution to a problem posed. This solution will then be presented to company executives (judging panel) for approval.


Up to ten (10) teams of four individuals are accepted into Programming. Teams consisting of computer/software engineering students are recommended, but not mandatory. Multi-disciplinary teams are accepted.
All teams must meet all general entry requirements of OEC.
All years of study are accepted.
