Tsinghua University established a school of integrated circuits
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, April 22 (by Mao Wei and Wei Mengjia) Tsinghua University held the founding ceremony of the School of Integrated Circuits on the 22nd. The School of Integrated Circuits of Tsinghua University is committed to promoting interdisciplinary integration and solving the current chip “jam neck” problem in China. This is an important step for Tsinghua University to meet the major strategic needs of the country, focus on the key fields of the country, and train high-level integrated circuit talents.
Wu Huaqiang, dean of the School of Integrated Circuits at Tsinghua University, said that integrated circuit is a typical interdisciplinary subject, and the school will explore a “1+N” joint mechanism to promote interdisciplinary integration. “1” refers to the School of Integrated Circuits, and “N” refers to the integration of multiple disciplines. It actively innovates in the aspects of faculty recruitment mechanism and organized scientific research, and sets up cross-research centers with related departments.
We have learned, in terms of talent training, tsinghua university institute of integrated circuit to improve the people of talent cultivation system of integrated circuits, connecting the material, the equipment to the chip system of vertical knowledge chain, reshape the curriculum system of integrated circuits, undergraduate cultivation by the academy training and categories of the mode of combining wide caliber, thick foundation; The postgraduate training highlights the integration of industry and education, and carries out deep cooperation with the head enterprises in various fields of the industrial chain, to supply high-level talents in short supply for the integrated circuit industry, and strive to solve the current “bottleneck” problem.
Qiu Yong, president of Tsinghua University and academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said, “The establishment of the Institute of Integrated Circuits at Tsinghua University is to focus on the key core technologies and accelerate the training of high-level innovative talents urgently needed by the country.”
