The Turing Class has a distinctive four-in-one feature in nurturing outstanding talents in the computer basics discipline:

1. Comprehensive strengthening of basic skills

The Turing Class highly values the cultivation of students' theoretical knowledge and basic skills to train outstanding talents with a solid foundation. Through reasonable and effective training program design, the content and connection between relevant courses will be streamlined and improved. The first two years will focus on general education and basic knowledge in computer science, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, mathematics, physics, etc., to provide students with a solid theoretical foundation and broad interdisciplinary perspectives.

2. Comprehensive research training

The Turing Class will strengthen the construction of research and innovation platforms, guide students to participate in research training, encourage professional mentors to lead students to participate in research practice early, and actively hold various seminars and experience exchange meetings to cultivate students' research interests. This will focus on cultivating high-level innovative talents needed for the construction of an innovative country. In the last two years of professional education, a wide range of seminar courses will be offered to small groups to foster students' research-oriented learning and innovation abilities through exploration-based courses and comprehensive practice. The Turing Class will combine the strong research strength of the computer college with undergraduate teaching to enable students to possess excellent research-oriented learning and innovation abilities.

Every year, summer classes will be held, and students' scientific and technological achievements will be evaluated and exchanged to create a platform for students to display their research results.

3. Full-process guidance by mentors

The Turing Class implements a full-process mentor-led training model and ensures the construction and guarantee of the faculty team, including Turing Award winners and academicians, to provide the best teacher team in the computer college. After enrollment, each grade will be equipped with a research team leader as the class teacher, and each student will be assigned an academic development mentor. After choosing a major, students are free to choose a professional research mentor. The Turing Class Work Committee will select a learning advisory group to develop personalized professional training plans for students, providing individualized instruction and highlighting students' strengths. Professional research mentors are responsible for guiding course reading and graduation design. The computer college will also invite teaching masters and scientific research leaders from top foreign universities to teach exclusive courses for Turing Class students, including Turing Award winner Professor Whitfield Diffie.

4. Global resource introduction

To comprehensively improve the international academic perspectives of outstanding talents, the Turing Class will open up comprehensive and multi-level international exchange platforms to enhance the quality and coverage of international exchange through course construction and reading, cultural exchange, international competitions, academic conferences, and research internships.

By participating in core course international construction, the Turing Class will integrate the advanced ideas and methods of computer education from the world's top universities, cooperate with international top universities to develop teaching outlines and online and offline course resources, invite international teaching masters and well-known professor-scholars from top international schools to teach fully English professional courses at the computer college. The Turing Class will gradually offer 11 subject foundation courses and 20 professional modules covering the forefront of computer science and systematically build a full English course system.

Establish a long-term mechanism for overseas university joint education, and send students to exchange and study at overseas universities. At the same time, select outstanding senior students to go to well-known universities and research institutions overseas for research practice for more than 3 months, providing students with opportunities for cooperative research and internships at international top academic and research institutions.

Encourage students to participate in various international academic exchanges in different ways, use high-quality education resources abroad to carry out scientific research work, and quickly integrate into the community of international top scientists in the field of computer science.
