Monday, March 9, 2020

SE2020 students Jasper Chapman-Black, Céline O'Neil and Sean Purcell won first-place in the Canadian Engineering Competition Programming Challenge. The team developed an algorithm to simulate a drone reconstructing a broken 3D model, determined how to move the pieces back into place and created a visualization for it. "Our shared experiences in co-op and course work prepared us with the programming and collaboration skills we needed to solve a complex problem under time pressure," says Purcell.
