Li Shangzhi (1947.6—) is a professor and PhD supervisor as well as Director of the academic committee of the School of Mathematics and Systems Science of Beihang University. He received his bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and doctor’s degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1970, 1981 and 1982 respectively. Since 1992, he has been enjoying the special government allowance from the State Council of China. In 2003, he won the National Distinguished Teacher Award.
As one of the first 18 doctors cultivated independently by China, Prof. Li has been researching into algebra, especially group theory, since 1980. He has made systematic and internationally influential achievements in the subgroup structure of classical groups and published over 50 papers in domestic and international first-class journals, including 11 in important journals like J. Algebra. In 1985, the research project led by him about the subgroup system of simple Lie groups won him a second prize of the Science and Technology Achievement Award of the Chinese Academy of Science. In 1998, Subgroup Structure of Classical Groups, his monograph, was published by Shanghai Scientific and Technical Publishers as a collection of his research achievements in this field.
Since he became a university teacher in 1982, he has been teaching elementary courses to undergraduates every semester and cultivating graduates at the same time. He has led three education reform projects in mathematics, each of which won a second prize of the National Excellent Teaching Achievement Award. His courses in mathematics experiments, linear algebra for math majors and linear algebra for non-math majors were rated as quality courses by the national government. He was the chief editor of Mathematics Experiments (published by Higher Education Press in Chinese and World Scientific Publishing in English), a textbook designed for China’s 10th Five-Year Plan of the general higher education and among the Textbook Series for 21st Century, and Linear Algebra (for math majors), also a textbook designed for China’s 10th Five-Year Plan of the general higher education. He was invited to introduce his experience in carrying out teaching reforms and developing quality courses at more than 150 Chinese universities. In 1999, he was honored with the Grand Baosteel Education Award for Excellent Teachers。
He worked at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Science and Technology of China from 1981 to 2006, and began to teach at Beihang in 2004. At present, he is a member of the steering committee for the teaching of mathematics and statistics and the vice director of the subcommittee for the teaching of basic mathematics courses of the Ministry of Education.
Zhang Xiaolin (1951.1—) is a professor and PhD supervisor of the School of Electronic and Information Engineering of Beihang University. He received his doctor’s degree from Beihang University.

Engaging in higher education for 25 years, Prof. Zhang has made major contributions in terms of teaching and research. Since 1995, he has been teaching Electronic Circuit I, an elementary undergraduate course rated as a quality course by both the national government and Beijing government in 2003. In 2004, he won the title of Beijing Excellent Teacher and the Grand Baosteel Education Award for Excellent Teachers. The next year, he won a first prize of Beijing Excellent Teaching Achievement Award and a second prize of the National Excellent Teaching Achievement Award with his project about the reform to cultivate innovative talents in electronic and information engineering, and was among the first Excellent Beihang Lecturers. In 2006, he won Beijing Distinguished Teacher Award and National Distinguished Teacher Award. He has published six textbooks or monographs and taken charge of nine teaching reform projects, and is the chief editor of three undergraduate textbooks designed for China’s 11th Five-Year Plan of the general higher education and a graduate textbook for China’s Commission for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND, now part of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology). He has instructed more than a thousand undergraduates in graduation projects, internships, course projects as well as electronics and information contests. These students have won more than a hundred awards in various competitions.
He has led a number of national, provincial or ministry-level research projects, winning a second prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award, two first prizes, two second prizes and three third prizes of provincial or ministry-level awards for science and technology progress, and a second-class merit for major projects of COSTIND. He has obtained seven patents and published over 100 papers. In the last ten years, he worked as the chief designer or deputy chief designer of three national key projects. He was the deputy chief designer of the research project of China’s first unmanned coaxial rotor helicopter.
At present, he is Director of the Key Laboratory of Avionics, Vice Director of the National Engineering Research Center of Satellite Navigation Applications, Director of the National Training Base for Integrated Circuit Talents, Vice Director of the steering committee for the teaching of electronic information and electricity of the Ministry of Education, and the leader of the expert panel for National Undergraduate Electronic Design Contest.
