The project of “Exploration and Practice of the Training Model of Network Security and Rule of Law Specialized Talents” presided over by Professor Yuan Hongzhao passed the acceptance check, according to the Notice of the General Office of the Ministry of Education on the Announcement of the Acceptance Results of the First Batch of New Engineering Research and Practice Programs (No.12  of MOE) released by the Ministry of Education recently.
Carrying out the new engineering construction is an important measure to deeply study and implement Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress, to write a good “chapter of progress” for higher education, and to fight the battle of improving quality, promoting fairness, and innovating talent cultivation mechanism. Since the establishment of the program in 2018, based on the featured professional foundation of profound law education and criminal science and technology, our university has carried out in-depth exploration and innovative practice for the universities of political science and law to carry out the cultivation model for talents specialized in cyber security and rule of law, with the “Cyber Security & Rule of Law Experimental Class” as a pilot. In the formulation of talent cultivation goals and cultivation programs, an organic integration of broad caliber and thick foundation has been realized through formulation of interdisciplinary essence course system with clear modules and overall correlation in the course construction process, as well as reasonable distribution of lectures and practice, to avoid the simple overlapping of courses. In the overall goal of cultivating talents, each module is organically related, with emphasis on integration and “Five News” (new concept, new structure, new model, new quality and new system).
In order to ensure the quality of interdisciplinary talent cultivation, our university has also set up a series of “micro-degree” courses for students in order to arrange in a scientific manner the practical ability cultivation process through various mechanisms such as minor, micro-degree, training and competition camp, interest clubs and other mechanisms, as well as the construction of on-campus and off-campus practice bases. Through the collaborative education platform for school, government and enterprise integrating “teaching, research, learning and training”, a new type of talent practice teaching is comprehensively implemented, with students’ development as the center, excellence goal as the guide and the new modular curriculum system as the content. In order to continuously promote the integration of law and information security, our university has also built a new training platform of “Big Data and Wisdom Justice” for secondary schools and a number of new engineering practice bases, forming a collaborative mechanism of school, government and enterprise for talent cultivation. Through the “cyber security and rule of law” experimental class and the cultivation and exploration of double-degree interdisciplinary talents of “law + criminal science and technology”, our university has broken out a new path of constructing new liberal arts of “law + X” with new engineering ideology by universities of political science and law, completing the migration of the new engineering education paradigm to legal education.
It is reported that the Ministry of Education has started the selection and evaluation of the second batch of new engineering research and practice programs in April this year. Accordingly, our university will coordinate the construction of new engineering and new liberal arts, and actively carry out related programs to build a first-class talent cultivation platform that integrates talent gathering, scientific research, discipline support and achievement transformation.
