Computer Science Summer Institute 2014

Byblos campus

The Computer Science and Math Department is holding its fourth Computer Science Summer Institute in Byblos from July 7 to July 11 this year.

The institute hosts high school students and teaches them programming (web development, mobile programming, etc.) throughout the week. Students then build a project and a competition is held at the end of the week.

Prizes include mobile devices and scholarships to the Computer Science program at LAU.

The event has been very successful over the past years and attracted students from all over the country.

This year’s Summer Institute will be followed by an optional one-month training in programming in preparation for the first national version of the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI). The IOI is a highly competitive annual international competition in computer programming for high school students. Students who perform well in IOI often get sponsorship from high-tech companies (such as Google) while they continue their studies at some of the best universities world-wide.
