On August 9, 2017, the first "GalaxyCore Cup" integrated circuit professional finals, held at Yanqi Lake Campus of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, was successfully came to an end. As a professional competition of the China Graduate Electronic Design Contest (hereafter referred to as the "CGEDC"), IC contest was held first time this year. According to the introduction of Cheng Yuan, the national organizing committee secretary general of CGEDC, 90 teams, more than 300 people attended this integrated circuit professional final.
(The China Graduate Electronic Design Contest was hosted by China Academic Degrees & Graduate Education Development Center, Graduate Education Steering Committee of National Engineering degree and The Chinese Institute of Electronics, undertook by University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Semiconductor Industry Association of Tsinghua Alumni Association and Cross-strait Tsinghua Research Institute, and supported by GalaxyCore, Moore, Seminews. It is one of the “China Graduate Innovative Practice Series Competition”, which is hosted by China Academic Degrees & Graduate Education Development Center. CGEDC was founded in 1996 by Zucheng Zhou, a professor of Tsinghua University. This session is the 12th session.)
This integrated circuit professional competition is to adapt to the develop trends of country that strive for increasing the industry level of integrated circuit industry, and effectively enhance the innovative enthusiasum, innovative capacity and engineering literacy of integrated circuit talents. Also, It aim to provide a better environment for cultivate talents of integrated circuit industry. The IC professional competition set up many sections, including the integrated circuit enterprise exhibition, on-site job fair, corporate famous seminars and other sections. For students, it provides a number of valuable opportunities to communicate with enterprises. For enterprises, it provides a green channel to explore outstanding future employees.
The “GalaxyCore Cup” integrated circuit professional competition adopts the combination of enterprise proposition and free proposition to conduct preliminary and final two-stage review.

Thus the superior man makes himself strong and untiring” as his speech title, sincerely sharing his experiences and inspiration about school career, occupational history and entrepreneurial journey, in order to light up the road ahead of the students who love IC design.
Integrated circuits are the core and foundation of information technology. At present, information technology has penetrated into various fields, for example：modern agriculture, modern industry, modern service industry and so on. Because of this, human life has become more convenient.
“In the past 14 years, GalaxyCore experienced countless hardship, but constantly strive to become stronger.” Lixin Zhao said: " We are honored to compete with Sony, Samsung and other companies in CMOS image sensors today, and we dream oneday GalaxyCore will surpass the world's top companies."
The 12th session of the China Graduate Electronic Design Contest was concluded successfully at beautiful Yanqi Lake Campus of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Over 300 after 90’s young people have made the first step to chase dream. Hope more design-lover to join this big celebration of IC industry in the future.
GalaxyCore will continue to innovate, overcome difficulties and expand our vision to contribute to China's integrated circuit development.
See you at the second "GalaxyCore Cup" integrated circuit professional contest in 2018!
