International Mathematics Competition

The International Mathematics Competition for University Students (IMC) is the most widely known international mathematics contest at the university level, viewed as a continuation of the International Mathematics Olympiad for high school students.

Each year students completing their first, second, third or fourth year of university compete in solving problems from the fields of algebra, analysis and combinatorics in two five-hour sessions. Up to now, students from over 30 countries and 100 universities have taken part in the competition.

Since 2003, Jacobs University Bremen participated at every edition of the IMC and is now preparing the team for the 14th IMC taking place in August this year in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria. Every year, Jacobs University Bremen sends to the IMC a team consisting of 6 or 7 of the best mathematics students in the university, led by an experienced professor from our mathematics faculty.

In 2005, the first time the IMC organizers published a university prize table, Jacobs University Bremen, with two second prizes, three third prizes and one honorable mention was among the top 30 universities.

Beginning with 2006, Jacobs University Bremen is one of the sponsors of the competition.
