Company officials said that lecturers for these courses will be professors from Chinese universities such as Tsinghua University, Communication University of China, and Southeast University.
 
Gou Zhongwen, vice minister at Ministry of Information Industry (MII), noted that to develop China’s technological capabilities towards more independent innovation, it is critical to develop the nation’s engineering talent.
 
He explained that the China State Education Project for High-demand IT Talent is designed to help China's technical engineers to gain access to the latest technologies and know-how, and to develop their skills for the global market.
 
“We are very pleased that an industry leader such as Tektronix is energetically participating in this initiative to assist China,” added Gou in a statement.
