On the morning of November 3rd, the 2020 National Science Award Conference was held in the Great Hall of the People. The project, Complete Set of Technology for Preparation and Engineering Application of Structure/Functional Materials for Deepwater Large Cross-section Shield-bored Tunnels, led by Professor Hu Shuguang of WUT won the second prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award.

Based on the major demand for construction materials for large-scale river-crossing and sea-crossing tunnels, the project was jointly researched and developed by units of materials research, building structure, engineering design and construction application. Three key materials and preparation and construction technologies to support and ensure the safety of tunnel projectsstructure, construction and operation.The achievement has been applied to dozens of deep-water large-diameter tunnel projects such as the Wuhan Yangtze River Tunnel, which has brought significant economic and social benefits and promoted the technological progress of tunnel engineering technology and building materials in China. The participating units of the project are Wuhan Municipal Construction Group Co., Ltd., China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Institute Group Co., Ltd., Wuhan Metro Group Co., Ltd., China Railway Tunnel Bureau Group Co., Ltd., Wuhan City Construction Investment Development Group Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Co., Ltd..

In recent years, WUT focused on the countrys major demands of building and construction materials, transportation, and automobile industriesand made great efforts to motivate the facultys innovation enthusiasm, carrying out a number of reforms on scientific research evaluation, strengthening the cultivation of and improving the facultys ability to make major scientific and technological achievements. The university has provided important support to the construction of world-class universitiesand world-class disciplines.
