Each year, the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC) brings together 150 of the most innovative and creative engineering undergraduate students from across the nation to compete against each other in design, consulting, presentation and debate. This year, CEC 2019 was held here at the University of Waterloo – and the Programming competition was coordinated by our own computer engineering student, Thomas Dedinsky. Not only was Dedinsky dedicated to help organize the event, he also created the code that powered the Programming competition. He focused on making the challenge language-agnostic, while simultaneously an engineering problem - a design philosophy that allowed the challenge to be easy to try, but hard to fully optimize. Additionally, he organized beta testers to provide feedback on the challenge, and assembled the panel of judges to adjudicate the competition.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering would like to recognize Thomas Dedinsky for his commitment and valuable contributions to this year’s Canadian Engineering Competition.
Well done Thomas!
