Six academic projects done by SCUT’s students were awarded at the 15th “Challenge Cup” National Undergraduate Extracurricular Academic Scientific and Technological Works Competition, which held its final in Shanghai last week.
The final concluded on the evening of November 18 at Shanghai University. SCUT's Vice President Li Zheng were also on a visit to Shanghai to encourage students before they performed the stage debate.
All the six works submitted by SCUT were awarded honors, including one first prize, three second prizes, and two third prizes.
The 15th Challenge Cup, taking “innovate, open, collaborate, and lead” as this year’s theme, attracted over two million undergraduates from more than 2,000 universities and colleges in China to compete for national titles, while 755 projects from 314 institutions were qualified for the final.
SCUT’s first-prize winner was an empirical research project about how to support aged people's life by using collective-owned land recourses in non-urban areas. Based on field studies conducted among 1,012 aged people in 15 villages of different types in the Pearl River Delta, students developed a solution to solve the social security issue of aged people in China's rural areas.
“Doing field studies and participating in the competition were tough tasks, but at the same time, a unique sense of affection and responsibility grew inside my heart,” said Wang Huiqin, a member of this project’s team and a graduate student of SCUT’s School of Architecture.
