HIT students won second place in the 10th International Structure Design Invitation Tournament, held at the University of Macau. The students, Wu Jinfeng, Lu Hao and Li Xinye, are all undergraduates from the School of Civil Engineering. Their instructor is Professor Zhang Qingwen, and the delegation chief is Zhao Yading.

The International Structure Design Invitation Tournament is a biennial competition. This year, a total of 15 famous universities from China, including the mainland, Hong Kong, and Macau, as well as other countries such as Australia, Singapore, and Japan, participated in the contest, including Harbin Institute of Technology, Tsinghua University, the University of Hong Kong, and the University of Macau. In the contest, competitors had to design and construct curved wooden bridges, which must then pass two tests using static loads and one test using a steel ball to test a rolling impact load. The deflection and structural stability of these bridges were judged according to their performances in the tests. In this tournament, the host organizations for the 2020 and 2022 sessions were also decided. After bidding, HIT and the National University of Singapore won the hosting rights for the 11th International Structure Design Invitation Tournament in 2020 and 12th Invitation Tournament in 2022 respectively.
