The School accommodates preparatory sessions and some tests of selection for the Olympiads of different disciplines: Technical Architecture and Construction, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Contact the coordinators for more information.
II Olympiad "Engineering in the construction: constructing with wit" (edition 2022)
Organised from the Bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction of the UdG, together with the other Catalan universities. The objective is to promote the scientific culture, the technology and the innovation, between the students of ESO, Upper Secondary School Education and Formative Cycles of medium and superior bachelor's degree.
This edition proposes the development of a project that relates the engineering of the construction with the sustainability. The teams will be of between 2 and 5 students. And the inn in value of the projects will be conceived as application of learning and not a critical judgement about the knowledge. (Inscriptions: of the 15 February in 1 March 2022.)

Olympiads of Chemistry
The Polytechnic School at the University of Girona is the stage of the Chemical Olympiad of Catalonia (OQC),where the tests for the Girona region are carried out. Tests also take place in Lleida, Tarragona and Barcelona at the same time. The 21 best pupils in Catalonia are classified, who receive the corresponding certificate from the Official School of Chemists of Catalonia. The seven best pupils enter the state phase. Pupils who qualify for the state phase represent Spain in the international and Latin American phases.
The Catalan Chemistry Olympiad is organised by the Official Catalan Chemists’ Association and is held every year around the start of March. The state phase takes place during the month of April, the international phase in the month of July and the Latin American phase in September or in October.
The aims of the Chemistry Olympiad of Catalonia are to stimulate the interest of secondary school pupils in chemistry, establishing bridges between secondary education and the university in this discipline. The aim is also to motivate teaching staff to apply a more experimental and applied method closer to real-life.
The OQC tests contain ten questions (theoretical questions, calculation exercises, questions related to the laboratory and formula/nomenclature of chemical compounds). The syllabus that the pupils have to prepare includes the two top years of upper secondary school education, the first in its entirety and the second up to section 4. The duration of the tests is 3 hours.
The chemistry teacher at each centre voluntarily prepares pupils.
For more information, address your consultation to the technical director of the OQC, Dr. Carme González.
Olympiads of Physics
The Physics Olympiads is organised by the Catalan Society of Physics, which belongs to the Institute of Catalan Studies. Every year the test for the Girona region takes place at the University of Girona (EPS) under the supervision of a professor from the Department of Physics. The organiser of this activity is the teacher Joan Josep Sunyol
