It consisted of 22 challenges, out of which the TUC students solved 16 and completely cleared the categories of Forensics, FullPwn, and Cloud.

This important international distinction comes as a result of continuous presence and distinctions of TUC School of ECE student teams in annual computer science and engineering contests.
