RMCCDC Updates:

In regards to RMCCDC team selection, we’re going to have to start looking for more undergraduates if we want to have a team allowed to officially compete, since teams are allowed a total maximum of 8 team members, with a maximum of two graduate students per team. This means that team selection is currently going to be temporarily delayed.

That being said, if you know some undergraduate students who seem good with technology and/or willing to learn, don’t be afraid to invite them! It’s a good way to continue passing down both technical and cultural knowledge, and there may be many students who’d be interested, but they’re just too shy/uninterested to go alone!

Additionally, if enough graduate students would be interested in participating, an optional team could be created that would not be able to place and go to nationals, but could still test their mettle against a condensed amount of attacks on a network they must manage and defend. At the very least, if you enjoy a good challenge where fast learning is encouraged, this would be a great experience to participate in.

Due to the number of graduate students in NEST at the moment, the above option will likely occur even if the team only ends up being 4 people.

If you don't have access to the vLab, please email us at nest@unm.edu and we can get you access.
