All students applying to IIITD for MTech in Computer Science Engineering (CSE) need to take part in a coding competition interestingly named CodeChef.
CodeChef is a platform to help programmers make it big in the world of algorithms, computer programming and programming contests. CodeChef makes students work hard to revive the geek in them.
By making it compulsory for MTech (CSE) admission seekers join this contest is a way of gauging their skill in algorithms, binary search and technicalities like array size and the likes. Apart from being a platform for programming competitions, CodeChef also has various algorithm tutorials and forum discussions to help those who are new to the world of computer programming.
There are various codechef test, IIITD has chosen the long challenge, which are typically named as January challenge 2017, February challenge 2017, etc. For the purpose of MTech Computer Science Engineering (CSE) admission in 2017, IIITD will consider the result of any long run challenge held during (or after) January 2017.
The date of on-campus written test and interview is June 16 2017.
Students who have not attempted a long run challenges yet, can still attempt it this month or even in June. This is another qualifying round for students wanting to take admission in MTech in Computer Science Engineering (CSE) at IIITD.
