Combining the advantages of XJTU's electronic and information engineering and other multi-disciplinary fields, the studioselected 95 teams from the School of Mechanical Engineering, the School of Electrical Engineering, the School of Life Science and Technology and the School of Aerospace Engineering during the registration stage.
The course "Innovation and Practice of Electronic Design" was designed for the competition to guide and train the participating teams. From technological innovation to industrial applications, from presentations to showcasing, the overall quality of the students' work was improved.
Wu Shengli invited experts and studio teachers to give instructions and commentson the works and Power Point presentations to the participating teams one by onebefore the provincial-level competition and the final.
XJTU has won the first place in the "China Graduate Electronics Design Contest" three consecutive times. The studio has become an effective platform for cultivating students' sense of innovation and improving practical ability, and fully reflects the school's positive progress with remarkable results in innovation and entrepreneurship education.
Twenty-six teams from XJTU advanced to the national finals and won five first prizes, eight second prizes, four third prizes, two awards for excellent papers, seven first prizes, one second prize and one third prize for business plans, and two best road show awards.

After online review, the competition selected 96 first prizes, 163 second prizes, 168 third prizes, 18 awards for excellent paper, four best road show awards and four most valuable investment awards.
The China Graduate Electronics Design Contest was initiated by Tsinghua University in 1996. It is the top electronic design competition in the series of China Postgraduate Innovation & Practice Competitions.
The final of the competition this year was guided by the Department of Degree Management and Postgraduate Education and the China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center of the Ministry of Education.
The Chinese Institute of Electronics, the Chinese Society of Academic Degrees and Graduate Education, the Youth Science and Technology Center of China and the China Association for Science and Technology were co-sponsors. The People's Government of Shaoxing city, East China's Zhejiang province organized the competition.
The contest consisted of two parts: technical competitions and business plan competitions that both include independent and enterprise propositions.
There were the following seven directions to choose from: circuits and embedded systems, electro mechanical control and intelligentmanufacturing, communication and network technology, information perception systems and applications, signal and information processing technology andsystems, artificial intelligence, technology exploration and interdisciplinary.
The content of the workcovers multiple fields of social life such as industry, energy, transportation,national defense, education, agriculture, tourism, health, and pensions.
