In order to meet the needs of China's integrated circuits and national defense weapons, the project has realized the Autonomous production of high-grade aluminum nitride powder with short process flow, low cost, high powder purity and controllable particle size morphology. At present, the project has achieved industrialization through the cooperation with Xiamen JuCi Technology Co., Ltd, solving the bottlenecks and breaking the monopoly of foreign countries on high-grade aluminum nitride powder, making aluminum nitride available and affordable in China.
The “Dingxin Titanium Entrepreneurship” Project, directed by Prof. LU Xin from the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), and headed by Prof. SUN Jianzhuo from the Institute for Advanced Materials and Technology and PhD student PAN Yu from IET, has won the Silver Award in the Graduate Student Creativity Category of the Higher Education Main Track. The project addressed the major needs of titanium materials in national defense, aviation, medical and other fields, and has created a low-cost, high-performance titanium powder injection molding technology with China's independent intellectual property rights, solving the industry problem of difficult processing and high cost of titanium alloys. At present, the project has signed technology transformation contracts with China Academy of Space Technology, China North Industries Group Corporation Limited, Panzhihua Iron and Steel and other enterprises, with remarkable economic and social benefits.
The “Wanzhong Medical Core Entrepreneurship” project, supervised by Associate Prof. XIAO Ruoxiu from the School of Computer and Communication Engineering and headed by master student CHEN Hongyu, has won the Silver Award in the Industry Proposition Track. The project uses Huawei Cloud ModelArts one-stop AI development platform to achieve rapid development, and uses the latest scientific research achievements in AI, 3D digital twin, MR, etc. to create a “medical + AI” digital twin medical platform, which can assist doctors in diagnosing clinical diseases, assist in surgery, telemedicine, and other functions, and has played an active role in the fight against epidemics. At present, it has established cooperation with more than 20 Grade-A hospitals nationwide, including the General Hospital of the People's Liberation Army, China-Japan Friendship Hospital and Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, providing technical support for thousands of surgical cases and generating important social benefits.
The “Yibei Smart Agriculture Entrepreneurship” Project was founded by Mr. JIANG Shijie, an USTB class of 2014 alumnus from the School of Advanced Engineers, the project has won the Bronze Award in the Youth Red Dream Building Track. As one of the earliest local service providers in Kashgar who responded to the National 14th Five-Year Plan, the project has developed intelligent agricultural systems such as integrated water and fertilizer irrigation, insect trapping and reporting, and solved the problems of agricultural development in South Xinjiang with intelligent solutions. As an officer who supports Xinjiang's development, Mr. JIANG has won the 2020 Xinjiang Science and Technology Excellence Award and the title of 2020 Xinjiang Outstanding Entrepreneur.
The “Dream Space Manufacturing” project is an international collaborative project between China and Pakistan recommended by the International Student Center and supervised by Academician GE Changchun and led by PhD students M. Irfan and Ifrah Kiran, has won the Silver Award in the Higher Education Track. The project focuses on the problems of high temperature and radiation faced by materials for aerospace applications, and relies on the top science and technology research and development platform of China and Pakistan to create the first stainless steel powder gas atomization technology, which greatly reduces the cost, improves the yield, and significantly increases the cost performance. Chinese youth and Pakistani youth engaged in joint research, sharing, achieve win-win results, and making scientific and technological contributions to community with a shared future for mankind.
