About the Centre


Centre of Student Competitions holds two special classes twice a week. Each class lasts five hours. These classes also presuppose a lot of independent work that includes finishing up the tasks of previous contests, individual classes with the teacher and other special tasks.

Students will be trained by experts. Some of them have already become the finalists of the championship. As a reward of hard work, a team that will show the best results will represent HSE at the Russian and International competitions. For such team there will be additional training organised outside the campus, where students will have a chance to share experiences with  international students and coaches all over the world. This elective course will give students an invaluable experience in dealing with sophisticated algorithms and quick and errorfree (sure) coding. Finalists are valuable in IT, because they have useful skills for really good projects.

In 2014 our team won the bronze medal in the finals of ACM ICPC, beating teams from such universities as MIT, Stanford and Berkley.

The Director of the Centre is Michail Gustokashin.
