Register now to compete in the first stage of the Ninth International Microelectronics Olympiad, an educational competition spotlighting the world’s brightest engineering students. All students under the age of 30 active in the field of microelectronics are invited to participate. One winner from this event will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Armenia in October 2014 to compete in the final stage of the Olympiad.

In this first-stage competition, participants will be given 2 hours to complete a 30-question multiple-choice test. Questions on this test are randomly generated from a bank of queries created by the Olympiad Program Committee members. View past Olympiad test questions here.
