Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) and National University of Science and Technology MISIS invite Russian-speaking schoolchildren in 7th – 11th grades from any countries to take part in the “Cognitive Technologies” Olympiad. The academic competition comprises online tryouts which will run from 16 to 22 December 2019, and the finals. Candidates have to solve eight to 12 programming problems online using C, C++, Pascal, Java or Python. Register on the Olympiad website by 15 December to get the link to the problems.

The Olympiad winners who plan to apply to MIPT or MISIS will have an advantage. For example, MISIS applicants will be admitted to field-specific programmes without entrance examinations. Those who choose MIPT are entitled to 100 Unified State Exam points in computer science.
