The National Intelligent Car Contest for College students is a creative science and technology competition, which was founded in 2006 and was held by the Automation Teaching Steering Committee for Colleges and Universities entrusted by the Department of Higher Education of the Ministry of Education. The contest is composed of speed race competition and creative race competition. The speed race competition consists of different groups for undergraduates of different grades. The creative race competition is more challenging compared with the speed race competition, which is more suitable for more qualified and competent undergraduates and postgraduates.
SCUN has always attached great importance to the training of students' innovation and practical ability, and has encouraged and supported students to participate in all kinds of high-level subject competitions. Over the years, SCUN students have achieved remarkable results in the National Intelligent Car Competition for College Students.
