    Shanghai, China September 27, 2010, - As the official co-organizer of the 2010 National Electronics Talent Competition, Altium recently attended the awards ceremony of the competition held in Shanghai and awarded an “Altium Practice Innovation Award.” The award went to Soochow University and Xuhai College, China University of Mining & Technology, the No.1 and No. 2 winners of the “Top Ten Schools” category.

    As part of the award, Altium provided Altium Designer software worth 3 million yuan to each school to encourage them to continue their design innovation.

    The “National Electronics Talent Competition”, as a technical contest sponsored by the Talent Exchange Center of the Ministry of Industry & Information Technology among the college students across China, promotes innovation among college students, to encourage them to put theory and knowledge into practice, to improve students‟ skills so that to better position themselves in the job market, to encourage them to actively take part in extracurricular technical activities, and to create the best possible conditions to support outstanding talent. In its second year, more than 4,600 contestants from over 300 schools participated in this competition. More than 700 contestants entered the finals, across four categories: embedded design and development, SCM design and development, electronic design, and production and electronic packaging and commissioning.

    Ten schools were granted the honor of Excellent School and over 300 contestants won individual awards. Altium also created a special “Altium Practice Innovation Award” to encourage pioneering thinking and an innovative spirit in universities and individuals.

    Roger Shen, Regional CEO of Altium Greater China, awarded the “Altium Practice Innovation Award” to Soochow University and Xuhai College, China University of Mining & Technology.

    ”Altium believes that electronics design can make a difference. And these students are those who will make a difference with electronics design in the future”.

    “Our support for this competition helps them break through design barriers to realize innovation dreams. Altium’s broader Academic Program in China, our support for educational contests and our investment in the National Electronics Talent Competition are all part of our long-term commitment to China’s educational sector. We will continue to nurture the next generation of industry-oriented electronic engineers, helping them put 'Designed in China' into effect.”

    To support this competition, Altium held two seminars in Wuhan and Shanghai on September 11 and September 17, attracting more than 100 teachers. Altium announced the launch of Altium Teacher Tribe, which encourages educators to follow the trend of unified electronic design and improve teaching quality through adopting Altium’s advanced tools.

We look forward to cooperating with Altium in the future.”
