Fifth International Microelectronics Olympiad of Armenia 



Fifth annual International Microelectronics Olympiad of Armenia took place in October 2010. This year’s competition reflected the region’s diversity by including participants from Russia, Ukraine, Jordan, Bulgaria and Serbia. Of more than 200 competitors in the Olympiad, 132 were students from Armenian universities: State Engineering University of Armenia (SEUA), Yerevan State University (YSU), Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) State University (RAU) and European Regional Educational Academy (ERIICTA); State Informatics College of Armenia and Yerevan Physics Institute; Gyumri Information Technologies Center (GITC). A number of participating students were from universities outside of Armenia: Moscow Institute of Electronics Technology (MIET); Saint-Petersburg Electrotechnical University (LETI); Saint-Petersburg State University of Information Technology, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO), Kharkov National University of Radio Electronics (KNURE); Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST), Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT), University of Niš and University of Serbia. Ten prizes were awarded to the top performers.

The Olympiad was conducted in two stages. The first stage, which entailed a test involving a number of basic tasks, was held on the following dates: October 4 in Kharkov, October 9 in Moscow, October 10 in Gyumri, October 7 in Niš and Serbia, October 8 in Saint-Petersburg, 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 more than 200 participants in the first stage, only 50 qualified to go on to the second stage, which was held October 28 in Yerevan at the Synopsys Armenia Educational Department (SAED). Of these 50 students, three were from Gyumri, two from Moscow, one from Saint-Petersburg, two from Jordan and one from Serbia.
