Fourth Armenian Microelectronics Olympiad 

 

 

The Fourth Annual Armenian Microelectronics Olympiad took place in September 2009. It extended its borders for the first time to include participants from Russia and Ukraine. 132 of the 180 competitors were students from: Yerevan State University (YSU), State Engineering University of Armenia (SEUA), Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) State University (RAU) and European Regional Educational Academy (ERIICTA); 10 competitors were from Moscow Institute of Electronics Technology (MIET); 27 were from Kharkov National University of Radio Electronics (KNURE); and 11 were from Gyumri Information Technologies Center (GITC). All 180 competitors pursued only seven prizes, which were awarded to the top performers. The Olympiad reflects the growing development of microelectronics design in Armenia by putting the spotlight on Armenia’s brightest and most talented engineers under the age of 30.

The Olympiad was conducted in two stages. The first stage, which entailed a test involving a number of basic tasks, was held on: September 4 in Kharkov, September 9 in Moscow, September 10 in Gyumri and September 18 in Yerevan. The top contestants advanced to the second stage, which involved a challenging contest and complex engineering tasks requiring advanced solutions. Of the 180 participants in the first stage, only 47 qualified for the second stage held on September 30 in Synopsys Armenia Educational Department (SAED). Five were from Gyumri, two from Moscow and one from Ukraine.
