The CU Boulder TCP program sent a team of five students to the inaugural Wicked6 eSports Cyber Competition in Las Vegas, NV on Thursday, August 8, 2019. Six schools were named as finalists for the championship round from a national online qualification round.
The CU BuffOvrFlows won the competition as it was broadcast live via YouTube, and Joshua Gillam, a TCP master's student, scored the most points on the Project Ares platform during the competition. The cyber games also included policy and presentation rounds, areas that the CU team dominated.
Project Ares is a virtual, gamified cybersecurity training platform created by Circadence, a local Boulder-based company promoting cybersecurity education to the masses. Two of Circadence's high-level employees are adjunct instructors for the TCP program, implementing the Project Ares software in their courses. Such examples as these of how TCP is changing the future of cybersecurity education and leadership training are numerous.
TCP, the College of Engineering and Applied Science, and the University of Clorado Boulder would like to congratulate our student competitiors on their stellar performance!
Our students are the reason we do this - we are proud of them all.
