Undergraduate Students Winning Second Prize in Contemporary Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling 2020
Mr YAN Boxun and Mr CHENG Feng (ECE Year-3 students), who teamed up with a student from Department of Mathematics, have won the Second Prize in Contemporary Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling (CUMCM) 2020. The winning project, supervised by Dr HU Xianpeng from Department of Mathematics, is titled "Furnace Temperature Curve Analysis and Optimization".
CUMCM has been held annually since 1992 which aims to improve the understanding of mathematics among university students, especially mathematical modeling and mathematical software. Participating teams have to develop mathematical and/or computer models to solve a simplified real-word problem in engineering, management, etc. in three days.
