CMU-Q team advances to SAP DemoJam finals
CMU-Q students have participated as individuals in the past, but this is the first year for team participation.
The first phase of the competition is InnoJam, a 36-hour hackathon battle where competitors utilize SAP technologies to originate a solution in the realm of research and education.
Noor El-Sakka, Mehak Manwani, Farjana Salahuddin, Ibrahim Soltan and Mohammed Zakaria -- all CMU-Q Information Technology students -- created an educational channel with the goal of connecting higher education entities, employers and students. The platform facilitates challenges created by companies specific to the needs of the business.
Ten of the 15 teams that participated in InnoJam consisted of professionals who are employed within the sector. The CMU-Q team was joined by only one other university team in advancing to the finals. The team’s project was presented by Soltan and Manwani, and the audience got to decide the winners.
