Why UCO?

India has seen a spectacular success in IT and computers which is acknowledged around the world. But computer education in our country is highly fragmented and is without any common goal or platform. Realising the huge importance of streamlined and competitive education in computers & IT and with a view to fortifying India's success, Unified Council has forayed into Unified Cyber Olympiad (UCO).

It motivates children to strengthen their knowledge of using mental ability, logical reasoning & computer knowledge. Proficiency in these areas will help them in overcoming problems related to software, management crises, lack of judgement and decision-making.
