Over ten thousand students enrolled to participate in the 2011 / 2012 Academic Competition, including more than two thousand representatives of the Southern federal district. 129 participants demonstrated strong results and were invited to take part in regional finals which were held in various cities of Russia.
The Southern federal district finals of IT Planet 2011 / 2012 Academic Competition took place on February 16 – 17 in Rostov-on-Don under the auspices of the Southern Federal University and the Rostov Technological Institute of Service and Tourism (Branch Institute of URGUES). The finalists spent four hours completing practical tasks offered by their potential employers.
Students with strong results achieved at preliminary elimination trials, whether placed or unplaced, will be included in the database of gifted students. Over 200 partner companies of the IT Academic Competition have access to this database. Thus, being listed on the base means an enhanced chance for challenging internship and employment offers.
