The Tudor Tanasescu contest is the most important professional competition for students from universities with electronic, automated and computer faculties in Romania. Obtaining a prize in this competition has proven to be an essential asset in the graduate’s CV over time.
Organized, with small interruptions, since 1974, the contest has passed to the 30th edition and is intended for the meritorious students of the III-V study years.
The main topics are based on two subjects from the basic training of an electronics engineer:
- Analog Integrated Circuits
- Circuits and Systems Signals.
The preparation of the contest is based on a bibliography presented to students at least six months before the competition. In parallel, preparatory courses for future competitors are also being carried out. At the written test, the competitor can use any material (book, notebooks, sheets, etc.) that can help solve the problems.
The contest unfolds in two stages:
- the local phase, which follows the selection of the best three students by each university and,
- the national phase organized in the last 15 years at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology (E.T.T.I) of the Polytechnics University of Bucharest. At the previous editions, the participants came from other academic institutions such as the technical universities in Iasi, Cluj, Timisoara, Galati, Pitesti, Military Technical Academy Bucharest.
