CS ROMANIA sponsors the "Constantin Belea - ProCon" Contest

15 March 2017
CS ROMANIA, acting as a sponsor, together with the Automation, Computers and Electronics Faculty (ACE) of University of Craiova and in partnership with the Dolj County School Inspectorate, SyncRO Soft, NetRom Software, SintecMedia and Caphyon will organize this year’s edition of the programming contest for high school students "Constantin Belea - ProCon”.

The objectives of the event are to promote competition spirit and school performance with regard to computer science, addressing students with the skills, interests and special inclinations for science activities, especially computer science and information technology.

The idea of the project was brought on by the growing need for IT professionals and the fact that in recent years the number of candidates for admission to the faculties of the University of Craiova has steadily increased; and in order to succeed the motivation to pursue this field must be fostered starting with at the high school level of education.

The project is meant to encourage students to study mathematics and computer science and increase awareness with regard to job opportunities available in Craiova and South-West Oltenia. While in the 1990’s there were only a few IT companies operating in Craiova, now there are more than 30, most of which being subsidiaries of multinational companies; therefore motivating students to follow an educational path like “High School in Craiova → Faculty of Automation, Computers and Electronics, Craiova → Top IT Companies in Craiova" is a smart career move.

The final stage of the contest will take place on the 25th of March 2017.
