In 2010, Tang Jun became the focus of public controversy over his resume.[4] In several of his writings, Tang claimed to hold a doctoral degree in computer science from California Institute of Technology (Caltech).[5] However, Fang Zhouzi checked Caltech's alumni list[6] and lists of doctoral dissertations, and found no records for Tang. Fang also discovered that some technical inventions for which Tang claimed credit were listed in patent databases as having been invented by other people.[7] Fang accused Tang of fabricating his credentials. Tang admitted that he did not have a degree from Caltech, and asserted that he had never claimed to have received a degree there, but only conducted research there.[7] Additionally, he admitted that he had never acquired any Japanese doctorate degree in the live coverage of China Central Television on July 6, 2010.[8]
