Our Students Achieved Good Results in the Underground Space Engineering Model Design Competition among National Colleges
On October 13 to15 in 2017, the eighth Urban Underground Space Engineering Construction Symposium in national colleges, the second Urban Underground Space Engineering Model Design Competition in national colleges for undergraduates, and the second Urban Underground Space Engineering in national colleges for young teachers’ lecture contests were held in Liaoning University of Technology. There are 72 teams from 40 colleges with 216 college students participating in the model design competition, and 52 young teachers from 36 universities participating in the young teachers’ lecture contest.
The model design competition for undergraduates was based on the application of “Grille Arch”, where the candidates were required to carry out the “design, construction and loading test of grille arch”. It is of great difficulty to just make the model on site, which would take as long as 10 hours.
Our students majored in Underground Engineering participated in this event for the very first time and got great grades. Team One from Shenyang Jianzhu University, composed of Li Jingui, Niu Lianbao and Jiang Liyuan, won the third prize and the Best Creativity Award, the latter of which had only 2 places in the competition, under the guidance of teacher Zhang Yan, while the other team named “Working Together”, composed of Liu Ying, Zhang Mingyue and Huang Yuanbo, won the Excellence Award under the guidance of teacher Guo Chao. Hou Shiwei won the second prize in the young teachers’ lecture contest.
The competition has cultivated students’ practical ability and innovative thinking abilities in many aspects, and improved the academic atmosphere. We have gained many valuable experiences and insights from it, which will greatly promote the development of the major of Urban Underground Space Engineering in our school.
