A TEAM from Shenzhen University (SZU) won the top prize for their water conservancy project at the Guangdong Province chapter of the ninth China International College Students’ “Internet+” Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition.
Following fierce competition, the SZU team stood out from a total of six college teams at the Guangdong chapter finals held at SZU’s Yuehai campus Wednesday.
“Water conservancy projects are important infrastructure. It affects power generation and the safety of people’s lives and property, so we feel that we have a big mission,” Zhu Song, superintendent of the SZU team’s project, said.
Zhu added that the team is devoted to providing smart water conservancy solutions and supporting services.
In Zhu’s opinion, the key to their success at the competition lies in their utilization of high-precision positioning technology in confined spaces, coupled with their mastery of multi-sensor data fusion technology.
The project has applied for 27 domestic and foreign patents and led to the publication of more than 20 research theses.
Zhu said that they expect good results at the national finals. Most importantly, Zhu hoped that the project could be delivered in the future.
This year’s Guangdong session attracted some 450,000 projects submitted by over 1.8 million students representing 165 colleges and universities across the province, marking an all-time high in both project submissions and participant engagement.
Since its inception in 2015, the competition has become the country’s largest platform for fostering innovation and entrepreneurship on a global scale.
