In 6.370 Battlecode, teams of up to four students use their knowledge of strategy, software engineering, and artificial intelligence to write virtual robots that must communicate with each other to fight opponents. An MIT-only tournament takes place in January, and an open tournament runs from January to March, allowing students from other schools to compete for a share of the cash prizes.

Lectures that supplement the competition focus on upper-level skills related to developing effective robots for the game. Though basic programming knowledge is assumed, students can be directed to resources to help them better understand the fundamentals.
