The national final of the sixth China International College Students' Internet Plus Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition was held at South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, Guangdong province.

The team, led by BIT PhD candidate Song Zhe, focused on communication satellite surveying and scored 1,310 points out of a possible 1,500.

A team from Xiamen University and a team from Tsinghua University in Beijing tied for second place on a score of 1,090 points.

Three teams — from Moscow Aviation Institute in Russia, Technical University of Munich in Germany and Carnegie Mellon University in the United States — tied for third.

The competition, held annually since 2015, saw 6.31 million students from 117 countries and regions sign up this year, the Ministry of Education said.
