Battle of Whiz

Coding Camp organized by Amrita School of Engineering

Powered by Code@Amrita

About the camp: Battle of Whiz Camp was initiated by Amrita School of Engineering in May 2015. The camp envisages to impart the problem solving skills to the school students who are talented in programming. The objective of the camp is to select the best students who are interested in coding, train them in line with the emerging trends, to develop efficient computing solutions for the future. The camp is solely for those who are interested in mathematical applications in computer science, using of efficient algorithms, etc. The camp will be a good base for those who are interested to shape their career in Data Science, Big Data, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, etc. Because of this reason, the camp may not be helpful students who are interested in application development.

About Code@Amrita: Code@Amrita is a coding club at Amrita University focusing on creating a coding culture not only in the campus, but also among the school students. The club organizes sessions on coding in the campus for interested students. These sessions help the students to gain more knowledge
