The School of Computer Science at Peking University was formally established: aiming to enter the top ten in the world
On the morning of October 24, the inauguration ceremony of the School of Computer Science at Peking University was held in the Centennial Lecture Hall. It is understood that the School of Computer Science at Peking University was reorganized from the original Department of Computer Science and Technology.According to Peking University, the establishment of the School of Computer Science at Peking University has fulfilled Peking University’s consistent mission of sharing a common destiny with the country and nation, and implemented the school’s policy of fully supporting the construction of new engineering disciplines as an important part of improving the school’s innovation system.
Hu Zhenjiang, head of the Department of Computer Science and Technology, said in his summary that the goal of the School of Computer Science at Peking University is to build a world-class culture and atmosphere, create an environment that can attract top students from all over the world, attract top scholars, and build a top ten in the world. A world-class computer discipline.
In order to support teachers and students to make innovative research from 0 to 1, the college will make every effort to create an atmosphere that allows teachers and students to explore freely in academic research. In addition, the college will encourage diversification, cross-cutting, and influential work. It will also encourage the development of basic tools. You must sit on a cold bench and get real things.
The School of Computer Science of Peking University also cooperates with Tencent, ZTE,HuaweiIt has cooperated with enterprises such as Ali, deepened cooperation with enterprises, promoted the transformation of scientific research results, and cultivated high-level innovative talents.
Looking back at the development process of Peking University’s computer discipline, it has been more than half a century. In 1955, Peking University established the Department of Computational Mathematics, in 1956 the Department of Semiconductors, the Department of Computers in 1959, and the School of Information Science and Technology in 2002.
Yang Fuqing, honorary dean of the School of Computer Science, puts forward three suggestions for running the School of Computer Science:
The first is to take root in basic theoretical research, get through the basic theories and technical principles of “stuck neck” technical problems, aim at the frontiers of world science and technology, and seize the general trend.
The second is to pay attention to the cultivation of high-end talents. On the basis of attracting outstanding undergraduates, cultivate a noble patriotism, be willing to sit on the bench, be brave to be a planter, well digger, have both ability and political integrity, and be good at analyzing problems. , High-quality, high-level, compound and innovative research talents who solve problems.
The third is to vigorously support undergraduateseducateThis is an important source of high-quality students for the college and one of the basic important tasks of the college. In order to integrate the latest scientific and technological achievements into the education of undergraduates, it is necessary to create an atmosphere in which outstanding teachers who “lead the hearts of students with personality charm and open the doors of students’ wisdom with academic attainments” compete to undertake undergraduate teaching.
