It is aimed at inspiring students' enthusiasm for studying mathematics, improving students' comprehensive ability to set up mathematical models and use computer technology to solve practical problems, encouraging students to take part in extracurricular science and technology activities, expand the scope of knowledge, and cultivate creative spirit and cooperation consciousness, and promoting reforms of the systems, contents and methods of mathematics teaching in universities. The CUMCM is one of the first 19 contests included in the Ranking List of College Discipline Contests and has become one of the most influential extracurricular scientific and technological activities for college students in China.
NEU has always attached great importance to the organization of mathematical contests in modeling for college students and cultivation of talents. It relies on the university-level competition platform of the Science and Technology Festival for College Students to select and cultivate excellent talents to participate in provincial, national and international competitions, and has creatively formed the talent cultivation model featuring the linkage of university-level contest, national contest and American contest, which promotes the talent cultivation in innovation at a higher level in NEU.
