Over the past 17 years, it has attracted thousands of young talents at home and abroad, and 164 of them have been honoured so far.
All of the winners of the 2019 award are master’s degree holders, including three working for Korean and Chinese universities.
On this occasion, 20 outstanding girls in information-technology, electricity, electronics and mechanical engineering were also honoured.
