Beginning with local and regional competitions, Imagine Cup 2011 comes to an exciting finale at the Worldwide Finals held this year in New York City, United States.  Overall, the idea is to show how technology can help solve the world’s toughest problems (Based upon the eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals). And the solution? Well, that’s entirely up to you—and your imagination.

The Center of Excellence for Information and Computing Technology is inviting two CTC teams and a faculty mentor to compete in Microsoft’s 2011 Imagine Cup, with the national completion hosted at Microsoft’s Redmond campus.
