Chengde Petroleum College, which once belonged to the China National Petroleum Corporation, is jointly sponsored and managed by the local and central Hebei Provincial Government. The central mission of the college is to promote the Technical and Engineering Departments, as this is the construction model for colleges of higher engineering set by the State Education Commission.
Our college is one of the oldest colleges in China. It originally grew out of "Beiyang Crafts School" and was founded in the City of Tianjin in 1903. In 1958, it moved to the historical city of Chengde where we presently reside. Chengde City is famous for its scenic beauty, cultural and historical background, and is only 200km away from Beijing, the capital of China.
Chengde Petroleum College is an experimental unit where the State Educational Scientific Research Network implements and experiments with new teaching methods. This link with the State Educational Scientific Research Network ensures a powerful CIA teaching standard and access to advanced experimental research. As a result, our college has undertaken many state patents and provincial rewards. In addition, we maintain close contact and cooperation with more than 20 domestic companies about the integration and production of teaching methods to insure advanced practical training.
We make constant evdeavors to be one of the top colleges among engineering schools of higher learning. And, through the collective contributions of our college's staff and supporters, we have established a good reputation among the companies engaged in our fields of study. As a result, our graduates can be found in numerous fields of industry aside from Petroleum.
Chengde Petroleum College is composed of seven departments: Mechanical, Automobile, Electrical and Electronics, Computer, Thermal, Chemical and Management Engineering. Among these seven departments, we have thirty-one majors for students to choose from. Each of these seven departments is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, which provide a good basis for comprehensive training and educational development. We have on-site training basis for welding, electrical engineering, electronics, computer and network, automobile and diesel engine technology, modern machinery, thermal engineering, industry test and control, and fine chemical engineering.
