At UCF, we are proud of our recent accomplishments, such as winning the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition three times in a row (2014, 2015, and 2016) and finishing 1st in North America and 10th in the World in the 2018 “World Cup” of computer programming.
Competition success and global recognition are nice, absolutely. But they are not necessarily what we are all about at the UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science. We are about the individual and collective mission of getting better every day.
As a young student entering college, I thought I had already “made it.” In Greece, only a small fraction of students advance to higher education. I was one of them. Yet, only until I realized that I had to become a more serious student did I begin to reach my potential. And since then, I became better every day.
