At present, there are many problems and difficulties in information technology (IT) talent nurturing. The application-oriented IT talent with strong theoretical knowledge and practice ability as well as professional ability and all-round development are urgently needed.

Enhancing students’ professional ability and all-round development through academic majors as basic units of education, NII has deeply developed application-oriented integrated talent nurturing and comprehensively explored and practiced TOPCARES-CDIO talent nurturing model.
