Thanks to his personal efforts and the brilliant victories of his students Vinnytsia and actually our Vinnytsia National Technical University was granted the right to hold a student team semifinal of the World Championship in programming АСМ-ІСРС, within which the final of Ukrainian student Olympiad in programming is held.
“The winners of the sport programming competitions are willingly employed by the world's leading firms,” says Volodymyr Mesiura. “But the main task of these Olympiads is to stimulate our intellectual youth.
