From December 1 to 3, the 4th International Engineering Mechanics Contest (IEMC) (Asian Region) organized by Hohai University took place in the Jiangning Campus. Those who delivered speeches at the opening ceremony included Meng Xin, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee and Secretary of the Discipline Inspection Commission of Hohai University, Yuan Si, Director of the Organizing Committee of the 4th IEMC (Asian Region), Director of the Teaching Steering Committee for Engineering Basic Courses of the Ministry of Education, and former Vice President of Tsinghua University, Alexandr Shimanovsky, Director of the Organizing Committee and Professor of the Belarusian State University of Transport, and Gao Cunfa, Vice Chairman of Jiangsu Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and Professor of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Leaders of relevant functional departments of Hohai University as well as over 700 teachers and students from 65 universities attended the opening ceremony.

Meng Xin said that the Contest brought another opportunity for mutual learning and common improvement in the mechanics community. Hohai University will try its best to build a high-level and international exchange platform for experts and participating teams, contributing wisdom and strength to the development of mechanics education.

Yuan Si expressed that the Contest has given full play to the guiding role of academic competitions in nurturing talent, improving teaching, and quality of higher education. Moreover, he highlighted the Contest's positive impact on the development of mechanics. Alexandr Shimanovsky introduced the Contest.

IEMC, co-initiated by several universities of the Russian Federation in 2005, has been held for 17 consecutive years. Since 2019, Hohai University has begun to host the IEMC (Asian Region) which consists of individual and team contests. The questions in the Contest are set in English and participants are required to answer questions in English. After two days of fierce competition, no more than six universities were selected to participate in the international contest held in Belarus. The Contest is an active attempt aimed at enhancing exchanges and fostering closer cooperation between Hohai University and universities in countries along the Belt and Road. Furthermore, it will facilitate the joint construction of the Belt and Road and exert a profound impact on the development of related disciplines such as mechanics.
