Xie Selected to Teach in the Dragon Star Program in China

Dr. Tao Xie, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has been selected to teach a course in software engineering in the Dragon Star Program in China this summer.  He is among nine internationally recognized professors from the United States and Hong Kong to teach in this summer’s program, and he is the first to teach a software engineering course.

During the summer of 2006, Dr. Peng Ning, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, taught a course in computer security in the Dragon Star Program.

Established in 2002 and sponsored by National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Dragon Star Program offers graduate-level courses in computer science in the form of seminars and workshops.  These courses are taught by reputable internationally recognized Chinese scholars, and are open to students nationwide in China.  The students experience the international education model, learn about the most up-to-date research, and have an opportunity for open and timely academic exchange.  Most of the participants are Ph.D. and MS candidates and senior undergraduates coming from a number of universities and institutes in China.
