School profile

China University of Petroleum (Beijing) has two campuses (Beijing, Karamay). The Beijing Changping campus is located at the southern foot of the scenic Jundu Mountain. The Beijing campus covers an area of more than 700 acres.

The Karamay campus is located in Karamay, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Covers an area of more than 7,000 acres. The school is a national key university directly under the Ministry of Education with distinctive petroleum characteristics, engineering-oriented, and multi-disciplinary coordinated development. It is one of the universities with graduate schools. In 1997, the school first entered the ranks of the national "211 Project" construction universities; in 2006, it became the national "superior discipline innovation platform" project construction university.

In 2017, the school entered the ranks of national first-class discipline construction universities and fully embarked on a new journey of building a world-class university with Chinese characteristics.

After more than sixty years of construction and development, the school has formed a discipline and professional layout with distinctive petroleum characteristics, focusing on engineering and coordinated development of multiple disciplines.

Key disciplines such as petroleum and petrochemical are in a leading position in China and have formed a certain influence internationally. According to the latest data from ESI, the school has 6 disciplines in the top 1% of the ESI ranking, namely chemistry, engineering, materials science, earth science, computer science, and environment/ecology.

Among them, engineering is among the top 1‰ of ESI in the world, and environment/ Ecology entered the top 1% of ESI in the world for the first time in January 2021. Focusing on the structure of the petroleum and petrochemical industry, we have established a distinctive petroleum discipline and professional layout consisting of petroleum and petrochemical main disciplines, supporting disciplines, basic disciplines, and emerging interdisciplinary disciplines, and implemented the "climbing plan", "upgrading plan" and "cultivation plan".

Respectively build advantageous petroleum and petrochemical disciplines such as oil and natural gas engineering, geological resources and geological engineering, basic supporting disciplines such as chemistry, materials science and engineering, and emerging interdisciplinary disciplines such as new energy, new materials, and artificial intelligence.

There are 4 teams, 3 national-level teaching teams, and 6 outstanding teaching teams in Beijing.

In 2018, two achievements won the second prize of national teaching achievement in higher education. The school adheres to the combination of introduction and training and supports the rapid growth of outstanding young teachers through the selection of the young top talent plan and the young teacher growth project, and a group of outstanding young teachers stands out.

The school insists on taking scientific research as the road to a strong school and continuously improves its scientific and technological innovation ability and comprehensive scientific research level by the idea of “building a large platform, undertaking large projects, gathering large teams, achieving large results, and making large contributions”.

There are 2 national key laboratories, 9 national scientific research and innovation platform branches, 23 provincial and ministerial scientific research and innovation platforms, and 18 China National Petroleum Corporation key laboratory branches.

The research field of petroleum and petrochemistry has outstanding advantages, leading domestically in many research fields, and developing rapidly in emerging research fields such as unconventional oil and gas and new energy.

Since the "13th Five-Year Plan", the school has undertaken a total of 1467 national scientific research projects, and won 13 national three major science and technology awards, of which 5 were the first completed units; and won 283 provincial and ministerial and social science and technology awards Among them.

There are 173 items as the first completed unit. The number of national-level awards ranked 10th in the national university general projects in 2014 and 2015 and ranked 7th in the 2017 national university general projects.
