The year 2018 is the 120 th anniversary of Prof.Ye Qisun(CHI-Sun Yeh),the 20 th birthday of"the Basic Science Class"(BSC)of Tsinghua University,and the 10 years creation of"The Tsinghua Xuetang(College)Program on Physics"(TCPP).At the anniversary commemorative meeting,the author gave an introduction to the origin,characteristics and achievements of these two special education programs.The vision of the BSC,established in1998,is the rejuvenation of the physics department of Tsinghua university and the training of the first-class talents of science and technology.In addition to the best teachers available in China,the main feature of the BSC was to strengthen the mathematics and physics courses simultaneously,set up a special course of Seminar(Studying Science through research),and give students full freedom to choose their major subjects.In order to advance the undergraduate education in physics and promote the growth of top-notch innovative talents of basic science,TCPP was formally established in 2009.Inheriting the feature of the BSC,the TCPP has paid more attention on building an excellent academic environment for talented students,on initiative study by student themselves,on improving the interaction between mentors and students,and on providing more opportunities for international exchange.The TCPP focused on cultivating students'curiosity,imagination and critical thinking.According to statistics,till now 15 graduates from physics department of Tsinghua have awarded the Sloan Research Fellowship,among them 5 graduated from the BSC.In addition to academic professionals,a lot of BSC graduates have made important contributions to many other fields in particular the high technology.All the TCPP graduates pursue their PHD degree in world-class universities,and most of the early graduates have obtained doctorates and are engaged in postdoctoral work.It takes ten years to grow trees but a hundred years to rear people.In the past 20 years,the BSC and the TCPP have made preliminary achievements in the talent cultivation.In the future,the department of physics will continue to shoulder the mission of cultivating outstanding scientists in China and pursue excellence on the road of teaching and researching.
