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. Professor John Hopcroft, Turing Laureate in 1986, world-leading computer scientist, serves as the Director of Turing Class Steering Committee. Professor Hopcroft is highly involved in the design of Turing Class' cultivation scheme and curriculum and teaches some courses in person.
