Chen Xiaowu, professor at Beihang University, was stripped of his post as executive vice president with the university's Graduate School. His teaching certificate was also cancelled, the varsity said in a statement last last night.
Chen is among a select few named Cheung Kong scholars by the Education Ministry.
In early January, a former doctoral student of Chen, Luo Qianqian, posted a Weibo article accusing him of sexually harassing her and several other students.
She wrote in her article that Chen tried to force himself on her after luring her to his sister's house more than 10 years ago. She eventually left unharmed after crying.
Luo reached out to other victims and formed a WeChat group with them to share their experiences and collect evidence before submitting the evidence to the university.
