DTS Solution was honored to part of the judging panel for the 6th Annual University Computer Engineering Competition at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in Dubai. The goal of RIT Dubai’s Annual Competition is for high school students to compete in a series of fun and exciting challenges related to computer science. This year RIT decided to split the competition into two days to allow more space for ideas and creativity. 20 high schools competed in the competition with 15 students from each school split into respective groups. The winner of each competition walked away with 50,000 AED per competition to apply towards their RIT Dubai Scholarship!
DTS Solution team consisted of Shah Sheikh (Sr. Security Consultant) and Usman Khan (Application Security Consultant) who were part of the judging panel saw young computer engineering students and enthusiasts assemble a Raspberry Pi to operate a lightweight Linux Operating System which would control a series of LED's simulating the behavior of Traffic Lights. The students were required to modify python code to get the simulation to work. Needless to say the activity was fun and was interesting to see how the students were able to apply theory into practical knowledge.
