The Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences has trained more than 15000 high-level talents
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, 16 Nov (Reporter Dong Jun) as one of the earliest scientific research institutions to carry out graduate education in China, the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences has formed four major disciplines: science, engineering, agronomy, and management. More than 15000 high-level talents have been trained, and the scale of doctoral students is in the first place in agricultural and forestry colleges and universities in China.
This was learned by the reporter at the exchange meeting on the reform and development of graduate education and the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences on the 16th.
In 1978, the National Conference on Science was held, ushering in the spring of science. Graduate education in the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences began to grow. During the 13th five-year Plan period, the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences won 22 national awards as the first completion unit, realized the full coverage of the three major national awards, and trained a large number of leading talents in agricultural science and technology.

A large number of high-level talents have been trained for China's agricultural scientific and technological innovation, and a multi-level, multi-type and international talent training system has been formed, such as academic degree, professional degree, foreign student and so on.
At present, the accreditation point of the college's degree has developed from 3 doctoral majors and 15 master's majors to 11 doctoral first-level disciplines, 16 master's first-level disciplines, and 5 professional degree authorization categories.

The Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences should speed up the training of more high-level talents who know agriculture and love agriculture, and explore the construction of a full-chain, networked and open collaborative innovation alliance with the deep integration of "production, learning and research". Take the initiative to serve the revitalization of rural areas, poverty alleviation and the construction of ecological civilization.
