The Battle of Universities – Episode 1 is a competition organized by OutSystems, where computer science students from different universities will fight – not literally – for the title of best university. The goal is to promote the development of their technical and soft skills in a fun environment.
For a full afternoon and evening, teams representing different universities will have to solve several computer science related and social challenges in exchange for points. At the end of the day, the team with the most points will be named the winner, and their university will have its name engraved on the Omega System Hall of Fame as Ultimate Tech Master.
Only the bravest computer science students (or related areas of study). Every team should have 3 students and a cool name. Just don’t forget to upload your student card so that we know you’re really a student and not some super secret CIA agent.
In a far, far corner of the Universe, the young cadets from Best Intergalactic Tech Academies of the Universe are getting ready. Every year, an elite group of schools is selected to face the ever threatening dark forces of the evil known as Chaos. And, you and your team were chosen to fight for your university and engrave its name on the Omega System Hall of Fame as Ultimate Tech Master. The Battle is about to start. Do you have what it takes?
Gather your team and get ready. On the day of the battle, cadets will be sent to the Edge of Reason, a remote place where chaos has long been spreading. Once you get there you will be briefed with a list of locations known to be in control of Stardust Keepers, one of the most dangerous illogical beasts in the universe, and ultimate spreaders of chaos. You and your team will need to prove your worth by traveling to each of these locations, facing whatever challenges the Keeper has prepared for you and gathering as much stardust as you can. The smarter and faster you are, the more stardust you will be able to collect. At the end of the battle, the team of cadets that makes it back alive, and with the largest amount of stardust will be named The Ultimate Tech Master. Their university will be appointed this year’s Supreme Tech Defender of the Universe!
