Three Year 1 students of the Computer Science Department successfully beat 27 teams from eight universities, in Hong Kong and Macau, to win the overall Champion University Award and 1st runner-up award in the 1st IBM DB2 UDB Inter-University Programming Contest.

 

The University fielded five student teams for this year’s contest. Among them, the team comprised of students Gao Shen, Du Rui and Meng Shucong won the 1st runner-up award for their outstanding ability in computer problem solving and the clarity of their solutions. Within a certain time limit, they successfully completed a series of questions on programme solving, thus scoring a total of 120 points to clinch the 1st runner-up spot. In total, the five teams scored approximately 320 points, enough to win them the overall Champion University Award.

 

Team leader Gao Shen said: “I am honored to receive the award. This contest is not only a great challenge, but also a very good learning opportunity for me, as a Year 1 student. By competing, I gained a lot of practical experience in applying database software in today’s business world. This will greatly benefit my future career development. The concerted effort made by our team mates is the key to our success.” Gao also thanked the Department of Computer Science for its support, which equipped students well.

 

The contest aims to strengthen students’ capability regarding the DB2 database management system. Each team consists of three students and each university can send up to five teams to participate in the contest. The team which scores the most points, with the earliest submission time, wins. The Champion University Award goes to the university with the most points scored among all its teams.



電腦科技發展一日千里,三位就讀計算機科學系一年級的同學不但快人一步掌握先機,更擊敗來自港澳地區八間大專院校合共二十七支學生隊伍,奪得首屆「全港大學IBM資料庫程式設計比賽」大學總冠軍及隊際亞軍,可謂雙喜臨門。

 

浸大今次共派出五隊學生代表參加,其中高屾、杜銳和孟書琮憑著超卓的電腦程式解難分析能力和精密的頭腦,於限時內排解連串資料庫程式的問題,以分數120獲得隊際亞軍;浸大五支代表隊更合共取得總分約320,成功贏得大學總冠軍。

 

隊長高屾同學說:「作為一年級生,這次比賽不但是很大的挑戰,亦是非常好的學習機會,能夠獲獎感到十分榮幸。比賽讓我學到很多資料庫軟體在實際商業領域中應用的經驗,對今後的發展十分有幫助。此外,同學們的通力合作更是比賽取勝的關鍵。」高同學並感謝計算機科學系對參加比賽同學的支持,協助同學作好充足準備迎接比賽。

 

比賽是以三人為一組,目的是加強學生對DB2數據庫管理系統的認識。每間大學可最多派五隊作賽。最後一隊能於最短時間內取得最高分數的便可勝出;參賽隊伍合計分數最高的院校則成為大學總冠軍。
