捷报频传!近日,由41名温肯学子组成15支参赛队伍,在美国大学生建模大赛中一鸣惊人。从全球1,576所高校26,112支队伍共计77,594学子中脱颖而出荣获大奖,其中包括一项特等奖(获奖率仅为0.17%),一项一等奖(获奖率7%),两项二等奖(获奖率15.35%)。这是温肯学子首次系统性参与这一极具影响力的国际数学竞赛并斩获重要奖项。

美国大学生数学建模竞赛(MCM/ICM)是由美国数学及其应用联合会主办,是唯一的国际性数学建模竞赛,赛题内容涉及经济、管理、环境、资源、生态、医学、安全、等众多领域。竞赛要求选手在四天时间内,就指定的问题完成从建立模型、求解、验证到论文撰写的全部工作,体现了参赛选手研究问题、解决方案的能力及团队合作精神。为现今各类数学建模竞赛之鼻祖。参与此次赛事的26000多支队伍涵盖诸如牛津、剑桥等世界顶尖院校,能在世界名校层层竞争中突出重围斩获佳绩离不开指导老师的悉心指导和学子的不懈努力。

从1月11号开始,温州肯恩大学建模队在数学系教授李俊德(Dr. Lee)和Dr. Gaurav Gupta的指导下集训并于2月5号正式参赛。30多个不分昼夜的魔鬼训练,从解构、建构到模型的灵活运用,留给学子时间并不多,时间紧,任务重,但是学子们以“不畏浮云遮望眼”、“会当击水三千里”的精神,完成了这一重大挑战。

本次临“危”授命的指导老师之一李俊德(Dr. Chun-Te Lee)毕业于牛津大学,虽然以前有多次带队参赛的经验,但是首次系统性参赛能够获得如此出色的成绩着实让他惊喜。“一般即使是双一流高校每几年才出一个一等奖,我们只有15支队伍的小学校能够实现奖项全盘开花着实不易!”

学生邱洋是首次参与此类赛事,他所在的队伍荣获特等奖。他表示,“和队友们知道结果后心潮澎湃心情久久不能平静,我要感谢Dr Lee和Dr. Gaurav Gupta两位教授在整个过程中不遗余力的悉心指导,也感谢合作默契的队友。”他希望未来温肯学子能继续参与此类世界顶尖赛事,把温肯名牌亮到世界舞台!

Great News! WKU students achieved great results in the top international mathematical modeling competition!

Recently, the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) announced the results of the 4th annual International COMAP Scholarship Award. This year, 26,112 teams, representing 1,576 institutions and consisting of 77,594 students, participated in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM/ICM) contests. 15 teams with a total of 41 WKUers involved stood out from competitive participating teams across the world, including one Finalist (award rate 0.17%), one Meritorious Winner (award rate 7%), and two Honorable Mention (award rate 15.35%). This was the first time that WKU Students organized to attend a math contest at such a level and won such great honor.

The Mathematical Contest in Modeling is sponsored by the American Federation of Mathematics and Applications. It is the only international mathematical modeling contest and the originator of mathematical modeling competitions of this kind. The contest requires participants to complete all tasks on the designated problems in diverse cutting-edge fields within four days. Renowned universities, including Cambridge University and Oxford University, sent their teams.

From January 11 to February 5, the modeling team of WKU underwent more than 30 arduous training days under the guidance of Dr. Lee, a Mathematics professor with an Oxford-PhD degree. Although he is experienced in supervising competition, he didn’t expect “the first time” to be such a great success, especially when students were on such a tight schedule to complete this formidable task. “Even for those top universities, it takes years to get one Meritorious Winner, but we made it even with other superior awards. It is unbelievable to reach such a goal with a new rather small university with only 15 teams participating.”

Qiu Yang, one of the students nominated for the Finalist Award. He said, “It was such a surprise for all of our members to win the best award. I would like to thank Dr. Lee and Dr. Gaurav Gupta, who spared no effort to guide me throughout the process, as well as my teammates who displayed a good sense of a spirit of cooperation. "He pinned the hope that WKU will continue to march towards the contest at such a level to showcase the brand of WKU on the global stage.
