International Mathematical
Contest in Modeling

COMAPposterThe Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) challenges teams of university students to clarify, analyze, and propose solutions to open-ended problems. The contest attracts diverse students--all sponsored by a faculty advisor--from over 500 institutions around the world.

Each year, over 3,000 teams, consisting of 3-students each, submit solutions to one of two open-ended, complex problems within 96 hours of being posted. For each problem, MCM awards three outright and named First Prizes--so a total of 6 first prize winners per year.

From 2009-2015, out of 30,428 competing teams, 70 Outstanding Awards and 42 Named Prizes (from the 70) EHP has won 8 Outstandings and 7 Named Prizes (see chart above). Our winners were:
