Every year, students working on HPCC Systems related projects, enter this contest to showcase their achievements. This event is always a great eye opener. It attracts a very diverse range of projects which clearly demonstrate the hard work and dedication of each student. Our judges had a very difficult decision to make in choosing winners from the 10 students who presented at this year’s contest.
