IEEEXtreme – The Most Awaited Coding Competition


Register at IEEE UoM for Proctors


IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members, supported by an IEEE Student Branch, advised and proctored by an IEEE senior member, compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems. The competition made its first appearance in 2007. The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is the pioneer behind organizing this colossal event.


The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, which celebrates the 130th anniversary this year is the world’s largest professional organization for advancement of science and technology with around 400,000 IEEE members in over 160 countries around the world. It is the leading authority in many disciplines of engineering including Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science & Engineering. There are around 1900 IEEE student branches in 80 countries, across 5 continents in the world.

How Will It Happen..?

IEEEXtreme is organized globally by IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) supported by local student branches to host it within local universities.

IEEEXtreme in University of Moratuwa will be organized by IEEE Student Branch of University of Moratuwa within the university premises, gearing up everything including logistics, foods and beverages for coding students to take up challenges and hoist the flag of the university on the top of the ranking board.

The competition will start on 18th October at 05.30 am and end at 05.30 am on the following day, parallel to international event. Students will be given 15 – 20 toughest algorithmic questions issued periodically by the IEEEXtreme global committee. Students will submit the answers on the coding platform provided by IEEE.

IEEE student branch of University of Moratuwa has the responsibility of providing food and beverages and other needs of coding students to place the university on top of the rankings.

We are that close…

IEEE Student branch of University of Moratuwa have been the most consistent student branch of IEEEXtreme programming competition ever since the first time of its appearance in IEEEXtreme 3.0 – 2009 in which they became the global champions. Since then UoM has dominated the competition by producing top ranked teams in large numbers.



Best performances

2009 Xtreme 3.0

Global champions

2010 Xtreme 4.0

Rank 11

2011 Xtreme 5.0

Rank 2

2012 Xtreme 6.0

Rank 3 (10 teams in top 100)

2013 Xtreme 7.0

Rank 12 (7 teams in top 100)


Apart from the results, IEEE Student Branch of University of Moratuwa is among the largest student branches in the world and the largest student branch in Sri Lanka, exceeding 400+ member base. Also, it is at the forefront of the student branches of largest number of IEEEXtreme participants.

The Grand Prize

The grand prize to the winning team from IEEE headquarters is a trip to any IEEE conference at anywhere in the world, that the team would like to participate in plus the ultimate glory.

From Previous Glory…


And we believe it’s time to bring the glory back to University of Moratuwa…
