Turing Program is composed of two parts: undergraduate, known as Turing Class founded in 2017, and graduate student cultivation, which was started in 2019. The program gathers together world-class scientists to design the cultivation scheme and curriculum in various disciplines of computer science, including but not limited to computer software and theory, computer application technology, computer architecture, intelligence science and technology, software engineering, etc., aiming to build a world-leading whole package of talent cultivation program: from undergraduate to Ph.D. students. Professor John E. Hopcroft, Turing Laureate in 1986, a world-leading computer scientist, is deeply involved in designing the cultivation scheme and curriculum and teaches some courses by himself. He also provides one to one guidance to the teachers of other courses to guarantee the teaching quality.
Turing Class, founded by School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Peking University (PKU) in 2017, is an elite undergraduate program that draws the cream of the crop from the PKU undergraduate talent pool, aiming to build a world-class undergraduate cultivation base, cultivating a new generation of computer scientist/engineers who are solid in both theories and practices. It has three directions: Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Information and Computer Science.
