Chinese universities have gone student cluster crazy over the past year. When China was allotted two team slots at the ISC 2012 Student Cluster Competition, more than 300 schools expressed interest in participating. Thirty submitted proposals, forcing the country to conduct a play-in round to select two teams to make the Hamburg trip.
The overall winner was Beijing’s Tsinghua University (profiled here). They’re a bit of an enigma, since they’re a first-time participant on the world Student Cluster Competition stage. But they beat out NUDT in the intra-China competition, and that means that they know their way around a cluster. You can meet the team in this short video.
