NUS team TeamTam: Muhammad Rais Fathin Mudzakir (3rd year student), Agus Sentosa Hermawan (1st year student), and How Si Wei (2nd year student) has competed in the annual ACM ICPC World Finals 2017 in Rapid City, USA on 20-25 May 2016.
TeamTam obtained raw rank 32/133 teams but officially classified as rank joint-20. This is on par with NUS recent results since 2014 (joint-19/122/2014, joint-28/125/2015, joint-14/128/2016). Congratulations.
