Probattle organized by IBA Computer Science Society


 

IBA ProBattle, the flagship event under the banner of the IBA Computer Science Society, held its third edition from April 13-15, 2015, inviting university and college students from all over Pakistan to participate and showcase their talent. The three-day event was sponsored by 18 different companies of Pakistan. ProBattle incorporated 15 different competitions which tested the participant’s skill at many levels. From Programming, Robotics and Web Development to Counter Strike, FIFA and Logo-Poster designing, the event included both technical and creative aspects.

After intense rounds of different competitions and hard work by the participants in the first two days, IBA ProBattle also arranged a show of the new Hollywood Blockbuster “Fast & Furious 7” at Neuplex Cinemas for participants to enjoy.

Hand in hand with these competitions, IBA ProBattle ’15 aimed to bridge the gap between academia and the industry by organizing a career fair for final year students to showcase their final projects to these industry leaders. Companies including System’s limited, Bytes.pk, GFK Etilize, Tripda, Times Consultant, Microsoft, IDG, Createch and Studio Binary showed great interest and provided valuable exposure to these students.

IBA ProBattle ’15 trophy is presented to the university with the highest number of wins, all competitions combined at the end of the closing ceremony. Following last year’s legacy, UBIT bagged the IBA ProBattle ’15 Champions Trophy with the most number of wins, defending their title and were closely followed by FAST-NUCES.
