Original title: University of Chinese Academy of Sciences announced the whereabouts of the first graduates: only 7 people directly employed
In August 2014, the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (hereinafter referred to as "National Science University") ushered in the first batch of over 300 undergraduates. In four years, what kind of youth and growth have they gained in the National University of science and technology, and where are they going now?
In the afternoon of June 12, 2018, the first undergraduate training program was held in the report hall of the Yuquanlu Road campus auditorium, which introduced the concept, pattern and characteristics of undergraduate training. Xi Nanhua, Dean of the Institute of mathematics and system science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, director of the Teaching Committee of the National Science University, Zhou Dejin, director of Science Communication Bureau of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor Su Gang, vice principal of the Department of national science, and vice president Yang Guoqiang, deputy director of the Education Department of the China Academy of Sciences and education, Diao Liying The Department, the admissions office, the heads of relevant colleges, and 12 representatives of 2014 undergraduate students jointly responded to the public's wide concern about the undergraduate education of the National University of science and technology.
"Look for the eight party to win the battle. The vice president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Ding Zhongli, the then academician of the National University of science and technology, welcomed the 2014 grade freshmen. In 2014, 302 freshmen were enrolled in Beijing, Jiangsu, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Zhejiang, Shandong, Liaoning, Henan, Hunan and Yunnan, and 30 people were enrolled in the national poverty area "Fen Fei program", with a total of 332.
How to train after entering the gate of the university? "The basic principle is the small scale, the strengthening of the foundation, the integration of the arts and Sciences, the promotion of intersecting, the teaching of students in accordance with their aptitude, the emphasis on scientific research, the cultivation of the elite, and the exploration of the new model of" integration of science and education ". At the news briefing, academician Xi Nanhua elaborated on the concept, mode and characteristics of the first undergraduate training of the National University of science and technology in a special way.
In the past four years, the first undergraduate of the National University of science and technology has gone through the "three stage" academic journey.
The first stage: 1~3 semester, mainly to study public basic courses, especially mathematics, physics, computer, language, humanities quality, scientific frontier lectures, humanities lectures and other basic courses.
At this stage, the 40~48 credits for 75~83 compulsory credits are mathematics, physics and computer courses. At the same time, with a large number of exercise classes to let the knowledge ground. "For example, mathematics, two courses in the first school year, 12 hours a week, with the teaching materials of Moscow State University," mathematical analysis ", cocotley King's" introduction of algebra ". Xi Nanhua said, "on the choice of textbooks, we pay more attention to whether there is good content and whether we can convey good scientific thinking."
"The difficulty of teaching is really difficult, but the benefits are also fierce. As the cornerstone, we have laid a solid foundation for our subsequent learning. Feel like the martial arts characters, at the beginning of their own do not know the situation, recited many seemingly useless heart law, and other martial arts to achieve a certain realm, only to realize the value of these heart law. The 2014 class physics professional Ning lung lung shared his own experience at the news briefing. It is reported that Ninglong long has been supported by the national endowment fund for studying abroad and is going to study for Ph.D. at University of Cambridge.
As early as the spring semester of 2015, the University Department opened the University Writing for the 2014 grade undergraduate students who had just completed the first half of the year. The course was fixed in the form of a compulsory course for the first grade undergraduate, and the class was taught in a small class. Xi Nanhua introduced the combination of text reading and writing practice to enhance students' critical thinking, analytical ability and scientific writing ability. It is reported that this course has attracted the attention of the educational circles, and some colleges and universities are considering introducing it.
Two series of lectures were set up for undergraduates, one is "a series of lectures on advanced science and a series of lectures", a total of 54 lectures for undergraduate students at level 2014, of which 21 academicians are the main speaker; a series of lectures on art and humanities, and 28 lectures for grade 2014 undergraduate students.
The second stage: 4~6 semester, mainly studying basic courses and a small amount of professional direction courses, leaving students with plenty of time to choose other subject courses, emphasizing the wide range of learning knowledge, as well as the elective of postgraduate courses, and scientific research under the guidance of academic tutors.
The National University of science and technology advocates the creation of knowledge creators as teaching teachers. At present, there are 457 teachers in the undergraduate course, of whom 306 are senior professional titles, accounting for 67%, including 18 academicians and 3 academics. For example, the basic course of the 2017 - 2018 school year, Xi Nanhua, Li Yongfang two academicians for the first grade teaching; Xu Tao, Zhou Zhong and Wu Yirong three academicians for grade two; to Tao, Ouyang Zhongcan two academicians for grade three or four.
In order to provide scientific research practice course for undergraduates, students go to the Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences for 1-4 weeks of practical activities, face to face with scientists, contact advanced scientific research equipment, feel the charm of scientific research and stimulate research interest. About one class of ten professional seminars will be taught in seminars.
"Freshman, I entered the Chemical Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in contact with the infrared, ultraviolet, and round two color spectrometer. I learned the laser confocal and total reflection fluorescence microscope, read the literature, and lay the foundation for the analytical chemistry class. Sophomore, I entered the photochemistry group of the tutor Yang Guoqiang. I attended the group meeting every week and read the literature. During the holiday, I went to another project to look at the design of hydrogel and bionic materials. In the third year, I went to the Cao Anmin research group to learn how to make lithium sulfur batteries. I also took a few chemistry graduate courses. My graduation project is also doing mass spectrometry analysis at the Nie Zongxiu research group of the Institute of chemistry. Liu Yu, a 2014 class chemistry major who has been admitted to University of Chicago for full scholarship, said at the news briefing.
The third stage: the 7~8 semester, the international training and graduation design, to provide students with the opportunity to visit the world famous school for one semester, and to the relevant research institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to do graduation thesis.
There are 186 undergraduates in grade 2014 visiting schools, accounting for 60% of the total number of students. To the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of California at Berkeley, University of Oxford, Columbia University, the National University of Singapore and so on nearly twenty universities around the world, many students have returned all A, and even all A+ transcripts.
"The mode of running a school, including the opening of the curriculum and the practice of scientific research, is so similar to MIT, a world famous top university, and the knowledge that has been learned in the past is also the most advanced scientific theory." This is the feeling of Cao Zheng, a 2014 class chemistry major, visiting Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After graduation, he will go to University of California at Los Angeles to further his studies.
Whereabouts of the 2018 undergraduate students
In July 17, 2013, general secretary Xi Jinping inspected the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It was hoped that the Chinese Academy of sciences would continue to carry forward the characteristics and advantages of cultivating talents with close combination of scientific research and practice, to condense first-class talents at home and abroad, to bring up world-class masters of science and technology, and to cultivate high quality scientific and technological innovation and entrepreneurial talent. In 2014, the National University of science and technology began to recruit undergraduates to move forward the position of talent cultivation. The national science and technology university that integrates science and education is a concrete measure to implement general secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions, Yang Guoqiang said.
The orientation of the undergraduate education of the National Academy of Sciences is to make use of the strong scientific research force of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to provide unique and high-quality undergraduate education, and to cultivate future science and technology leaders who pursue scientific dreams, devote themselves to scientific undertakings and aspire to the state of science. In order to guide students to plan their studies and future development, the national undergraduate students practice academic tutoring system throughout their whole life. At present, there are 982 academic tutors, including 76 academicians, 388 outstanding people and 68 thousand people.
On the way to science, the State University respected students' interests and offered free access to majors. Undergraduates had two professional opportunities. 70 of the 2014 undergraduate students changed their majors, accounting for 21.2% of the grade. At the same time, the national science and Technology University encourages students to study multidisciplinary courses. 161 of the 2014 undergraduate students chose a minor / double degree, accounting for 48.5% of the grade.
"Thank you for choosing NK, and thank you for your success." Liu Yu said. The pointer of time came to the graduation season. At the news briefing, Su Gang introduced the first undergraduate's research situation, graduation defense evaluation and graduation direction during the semester.
2014 undergraduate students have made some achievements in scientific research papers and invention patents. For example, Mesh-based Autoencoders for Localized Deformation Component Analysis, a paper written by the first author of computer science and technology, was recorded by the top conference on artificial intelligence in the field of computer science, and went to the United States to make a conference.
The first undergraduate thesis defense was completed in early June. The tutor of graduation thesis is distributed in 29 Institutes of Chinese Academy of Sciences and 5 Institutes of science and technology in National University, and the ratio of students to teachers is 1:1.38. Among them, 202 tutors of the Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences, accounting for 94.8% of the total number of theses, fully reflect the characteristics of the integration of science, technology and education. The graduation thesis is 50.51% from the national, provincial and ministerial level subjects. Among them, 110 graduation theses came from the National Natural Science Foundation, and 29 came from the "973" and "863" projects.
"The excellent scientific research environment provides students with the opportunity to meet the frontiers of zero distance contact. The subject of graduation thesis is multidimensional and challenging. It not only exercises the students' ability to solve problems in comprehensive use of knowledge, but also broadens their horizons and has a further understanding of scientific research." Su Gang said.
290 of the first undergraduate students of the National University of science and technology graduated from this year, 1 graduated, 1 were suspended from school, 30 were postponed, and 10 were dropped out.
As of May 31st, only 7 undergraduates were directly employed by the first graduate of the National University of science and technology. It has been clear that 243 graduates will continue to pursue advanced studies, master or directly pursue doctoral degrees, accounting for 83.8% of the total number of graduates. 84 of them study abroad (56 people go abroad for further study, 28 go to universities in Hongkong), accounting for 28.9% of the number of graduates, and 159 graduate students in China, accounting for 54.8% of the number of graduates. In addition, this year's graduation plan is to apply for 40 people studying abroad or studying in China next year.
Among the overseas graduates, 11 entered the global TOP10 University for further education, and 52 entered the global TOP100 universities (including the top ten) for further studies, accounting for 17.9% of the total number of graduates. For example, Liu Ziyu, a 2014 level physics major, chose the full scholarship of the PhD project after the Columbia University, University of Oxford, University of Minnesota, Purdue University, the Purdue University, the University of Pittsburgh, and offer; Yang Yufei, a major in material science and engineering, was in the world's famous school. Between the choice of Stanford University. Of the 159 graduates from China, 155 chose to read and study at the National Academy of Sciences (Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences). The other four were selected to read Tsinghua, Peking University, Shanghai Jiaotong University and West Lake University.
It is particularly noteworthy that some of the students in the postponement of graduation are actively applying for a double degree, and they propose to use the national science education resources to learn some courses. At the same time, Wang Shi Yang, who specializes in chemistry and computer science, is one of Wang Shi Yang from the fourth center of Beijing. "I have always had a clear goal. He had been with the other 5 students
