Hu Qizheng, a professor at the institute who teaches fun

damentals of the space industry, said Chinese teachers are exp

loring approaches that are appropriate for instructing foreign students.

“Some of the students have work experience in the space sector because their countries have satellites, while othe

rs don’t have such experience and know virtually nothing about space activities,” he said. “So we have been wor

king to figure out an appropriate teaching schedule and to make sure everyone’s individual needs can be taken care of.”

The students’ first year at the institute was focused on basic knowledge about space p

rograms, while in the second year each of them will be given a detailed topic for research, Hu said.

Teaching materials given to the foreign trainees were modified from those prepared for Chinese students, while teach

ers are making textbooks specifically edited for foreign learners, the professor said.
