About us

The history of the College of Petroleum Engineering can be dated back to 1953 when the Department of Drilling and Exploitation was firstly established in Beijing Petroleum College. Now our college has become a significant training base for fostering high-level professionals in the areas of drilling and oil field development.

Having been ranking the 1st place in the field of Petroleum Engineering in China ever since it was founded, our college never forgets its ambition, which is to cultivate highly qualified inter-disciplinary talents for society and conduct research on cutting-edge technology. Aiming at this goal, the college emphasizes a solid foundation for every student in petroleum engineering fundamentals and basic skills needed in this industry by delivering highly qualified research-based education to students. Moreover, a series of high-end laboratories and different facilities have been established. The College of Petroleum Engineering has access to extensive laboratory facilities that are currently being utilized to conduct physical and chemical testing and computer modeling. On top of that, with an ever-growing faculty led by three members of Chinese Academy of Engineering, one member of Chinese Academy of Sciences and one member of Canadian Academy of Engineering, a sophisticated personnel training system has been working efficiently. Most noticeably, the College of Petroleum Engineering also devotes to developing a global perspective. Our international reputation grows with the quality of our graduates, construction of first-level disciplines and our academic capacity.
