2010.9-2014.6, B.S. in Information and Computing Science, Department of Mathematics and Physics, North China Electric Power University

The research institute where I study called Institute of China's Science, Technology and Education Policy (ICSTEP), is the key strategic research base of Ministry of Education, and the key strategic research base of Chinese Academy of Engineering. I studied information and computing science for my bachelor degree. And I became a PhD Candidate in Educational Economy and Management in Zhejiang University after my graduation.
Engineering education, as one of the main research field in ICSTEP, has become my research topic since I have participated in several research projects of engineering education funded by Chinese Academy of Engineering and Ministry of Education.

Abstract

That the rapid development of engineering science in the fields of artificial intelligence, internet of things, and big data marks the human society entering into the intelligent stage, which increases the awareness of computing skills cultivations for engineers and technicians. Yet the path of the realization of computing education is not generally defined in China. Within this context, this study intends to firstly list the key nodes and landmark events of Chinese computing education by literature review technique, and summarize its historical context and anticipate the trends. Secondly, using structured case study method, the study selects and analyses four typical cases conducted within Chinese computing education system, and subsequently extracts two paths named integrated path, and specialized path for sustainable development of computing education. Different characteristics of computing education models have been outlined and summarized as four typical paths which are underlying computing education. The concept of computing education is consequently refined and suggestions are put forward for various hierarchies like government, university, and industry, to effectively improve the quality of talent cultivation in computing education in China.
