Student Project Contest

The University of Tartu Institute of Computer Science announces the IT Student Project Contest.

The project submitted has to be in the field of IT. It can be practical or theoretical research or implementation project. It may be associated with any course or be a completely new and personal initiative—for example, a project from a course, educational resource, public software, a start-up idea, etc.

In the Bachelor’s and Master’s categories, at least ⅔ of the authors (except the supervisor) have to be students of the appropriate level. If there are two members in the team, ½ of the authors must be students of the appropriate level. In the first-year Bachelor’s category, all authors must be first-year Bachelor's students.
