Founded in 2019, Turing Class is an experimental class for top-notched talents on the basic discipline of computer science that is hinged on the cultivation base for elite talents, and a pilot platform for education and teaching reform in Chu Kochen Honors College.
By referring to the profound teaching and scientific research strength in College of Computer Science and Technology, and revolving upon its featured cultivation model as is elaborated in ‘intensification of full-discipline fundamentals’, ‘all-round training on scientific research’, ‘whole-process guidance from supervisors’, ‘introduction of global resources’ and ‘fostering of professional discipline’, puts into effect the cultivation plan of top-rated talents on computer science, and takes aim at cultivating high-quality undergraduate students carrying profound foundation, high competence, in-depth digging spirit and wide horizon.
Chief professors in Turing Class consist of Professor Whitfield Diffie, winner of Turing Award or ‘Nobel Prize in the Realm of Computer Science’, academician Wu Chaohui, academician Chen Chun, academician Pan Yunhe and academician Hurry Shum. Its supervisors cover preminent personnel including Chang Jiang Scholars, Distinguished Young Scholars of the National Science Fund and the like. Students are allowed to independently opt for their major from three choices, namely computer science and technology, AI and information security. They are encouraged to pursue further study in global first-rated universities upon graduation and to aspire to grow into first-class discipline forerunners and strategic scientists on computer science.
