Prof. Wang noted that Beihang has made great efforts to deepen the personnel system reform to establish a complete system for the development of teachers in recent years. First of all, under the background of the nation-wide campaign of “Eliminating Five Orientations (paper-oriented, position-oriented, title-oriented, degree-oriented and awards-oriented)”, the university took a lead in introducing a management program for specific performance evaluation of teachers as a way to boost the development of teachers. Second, the university established a global network to introduce more young talents and has achieved excellent outcomes. Third, Beihang continued to improve the three-layer talent introduction and development system involving the university, schools and platforms or teams, providing a platform for more excellent young talents to grow and improve capabilities.
