The team “MetuNCCrew” representing METU Northern Cyprus Campus has been awarded 1st place across Turkey and ranked as the 210th worldwide in this year’s IEEEXtreme, the 24-hour long hackathon and competitive programming challenge. Our university has been participating in the competition since 2014 when the IEEEXtreme 8.0 was held.
