ITMO UNIVERSITY, A PROJECT 5-100 PARTICIPANT, RECOGNISED AS THE WORLD’S BEST UNIVERSITY IN PROGRAMMING


HackerRank, a technology firm, presented its rating of world’s best universities in programming and awarded the first place to ITMO University, one of the Project 5-100 universities.
         In the ranking, Russia was also represented by another university from the northern capital – St. Petersburg State University claimed rank 6. Times Higher Education website has also published the HackerRank league tables.
         HackerRank runs hackathons where contestants attack issues topical for businesses or consumers; corporations use hackathons to discover outstanding software developers.
         The top 10 list of universities also includes two Indian institutions, as well as universities from China, Vietnam, USA, Canada, Ukraine and Sweden (one per country).
         Unlike academic rankings (which focus on such indicators as citations, reputation, scientific publications etc.), HackerRank reflects students’ programming skills. It is based on the results of University Rankings Competition, a global contest involving over 5500 students from 126 universities from all over the world. Both the number of competing students and their results were used to compile the ranking. Participation of at least 10 students in the Competition made their university eligible for the ranking.
