On March 23, upon the invitation of the Experimental Teaching Center of the Department of Electronic Engineering, Mr. Yuan Yadong, University Planning Manager of the Programmable Solutions Group, Intel, visited the Experimental Teaching Center of the Department of Electronic Engineering.
Deputy Director Xu Shuzheng and Teacher Sun Yinan from the Experimental Teaching Center introduced the overall situation of the Center and the setting, teaching and practice contents and so on of the FPGA courses of the Department of Electronic Engineering to Yuan Yadong. Yuan Yadong introduced the development of Intel's FPGA technology and the strategic deployment of university plans. And they exchanged regarding the FPGA development, structure, tools, as well as the layout of Intel in fields such as AI, autonomous driving, next-generation mobile communications, and VR. In response to the relevant experimental courses offered by the Experimental Teaching Center, Yuan Yadong expressed that he will do his best to support and coordinate and he hoped that an in-depth cooperation with the Experimental Teaching Center can be conducted from aspects of hardware, software, tools, teaching content, lesson plans, etc.
During the professional teaching process, the Experimental Teaching Center has built an "integrated, multi-level and open" practical teaching system that covers experimental teaching, scientific research, discipline competition and engineering practice to enable students to fully develop their personalities while growing in all respects. The organic combination of knowledge, ability and literacy has established a diversified talent training model with characteristics of the times, thus training high-quality compound top innovative talents with international visions, innovative spirit and practical abilities.
