     China university students’ major subjects contests including four main contests organized by Ministry of Education, i.e. mathematic modeling, software design, electronic design, machinery design, and the Challenge Cup Contest organized by The Central League. Mathematical contest in modeling is of the first importance among the four major subjects contests. It has the most extensive scope and has greatest influence on the college students. 6820 groups, altogether more than 20,000 participants, took part in the contest. According to statistics,  eight groups, in all, in Zhejiang province took the first prizes were won by three groups from Zhejiang University, and one group, respectively, from our  university, Hangzhou University of Electronic Science and Technology, Zhejiang University of Technology, Zhejiang University of Science,  and Zhejiang University of Finance and Economics.

    This national prize was the first major contest prize which the four-year program group got since our university set up. Our university’s first national prize of three-year program group was also won in mathematic modeling contest. In five years, through starting optional courses of mathematic modeling, improving summer training system, building important courses and the front of quality developing, our university not only acquired the first prize of Ningbo government’s first educational achievements, but also gained good reputation in the whole province and even all over the country, especially, the results of three-year program group’s contest are always among the first in China.
