Teaching Affairs Office Director Huang Kefu, Admissions Office Director Tan Jianwei, CSE Deputy Director of Teaching Hao Qi and CSE Professor Liu Jiang attended the awards ceremony.

Teaching Affairs Office Director Huang Kefu congratulated the students for competing in the contest, pointing out that SUSTech will always actively support professional competitions that promote skills among its undergraduate student population. He encouraged students to practice their skills to contribute to the future needs of the country.

CSE focuses on promoting learning through competition and practical applications. Freshmen undergraduate courses are professional in their focus, with subjects such as “Basics of Computer Programming” and “Data Structure and Algorithm Analysis.” The curriculum is designed to cultivate elite innovative talents for the new era.
