UT Programming Contest (UTPC) is a chapter of the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC).

The International Collegiate Programming Contest is an algorithmic programming contest for college students. Teams of three, representing their university, work to solve the most real-world problems, fostering collaboration, creativity, innovation, and the ability to perform under pressure. Through training and competition, teams challenge each other to raise the bar on the possible. Quite simply, it is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world.

The top teams from each regional contest from six different continents come together to compete by conquering the world's most challenging problem set. The goal is to earn the ultimate honor of being the best of the best problem solvers on the planet, the ICPC World Champions.

Last year, 140 teams from a field of 50,000 contestants in 111 countries on six continents advanced to the ICPC World Finals.
