Mathematics & Computer Science Competitions

Ashland University students participate in a number of student competitions. Many of these competitions start at the regional and state levels, and move all the way up to the national and world stage. 

  • Association of Computing Machinery Regional Programming Contest
  • Ohio Section of the Mathematical Association of America Mathematics Contest
  • William Lowell Putnam Competition

Association of Computing Machinery Regional Programming Contest

The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is a multitier, team-based, programming competition operating under the auspices of ACM and headquartered at Baylor University. The contest involves a global network of universities hosting regional competitions that advance teams to the ACM-ICPC World Finals. Participation has grown to several tens of thousands of the finest students and faculty in computing disciplines at almost 2,000 universities from over 80 countries on six continents. The contest fosters creativity, teamwork and innovation in building new software programs and enables students to test their ability to perform under pressure. Quite simply, it is the oldest, largest and most prestigious programming contest in the world.
