DIT School of Computing delivers software education programme to Chinese academics

The DIT School of Computing, which is recognised as a centre of excellence for the delivery of software education by the Chinese Government, hosted the first ever offering of a Certificate in Industry-Oriented Software Education last month.  Twenty-three senior academics from fourteen Chinese Universities were selected to participate.  They were sponsored by the Chinese International Talent Exchange Foundation (CITEF), a non-governmental agency approved by the Chinese government, to spend three weeks in Dublin, studying on a short course programme with the School of Computing.

This programme represents a significant achievement by the School of Computing in DIT. This first offering of the programme sets the foundation for greater future collaboration between CITEF and the DIT and it expands the already significant profile of the DIT School of Computing in China and elsewhere.

The graduation ceremony, held on November 23rd, was attended by Senator Martin Brady, Mr. Michael Kelly, Chairman of the HEA, and Mr. Kang Lu, Charge d'Affaires in the Chinese Embassy to Ireland. Mr Kang Lu commented on the significance of the programme, congratulating the organisers on the initiative and commenting on the quality of the programme delivery. These comments were echoed by CITEF and by the graduates of the programme who expressed themselves extremely satisfied with the quality of instruction and hospitality shown to them by the staff of the School of Computing during their short stay.
