North China Electric Power University (NCEPU) is a national key university, one of the “Project 211” universities, under the direct jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education (MOE). Its main campus is located in Beijing and the other one in the city of Baoding, with altogether more than 3,000 faculty and staff members, over 20,000 full-time undergraduates, and 7,000 postgraduates. It covers 1600 mu (more than 100 hectares) with a gross floor area of about one million square meters.

NCEPU was founded in 1958 and had been run by the State Electric Power Corporation before it was taken over by the MOE due to the national power system reform in 2003, when a joint university council was established consisting of State Grid Corporation of China, China Southern Power Grid, China Huaneng Corporation, China Datang Corporation, China Guodian Corporation, China Huadian Corporation, and China Power Investment Corporation, to jointly construct the university with the MOE. In 2013, its council was reformed, and the new council is composed of nine members, including seven central-government-owned power enterprises, China Electricity Council, and NCEPU.

NCEPU has 10 schools, including School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, School of Energy Power and Mechanical Engineering, School of Control and Computer Engineering, School of Economics and Management, etc., covering 59 undergraduate majors. Two disciplines of the university, Power System and Automation, and Thermal Power Engineering, have been recognized as national key disciplines. NCEPU has been authorized to confer such professional master’s degrees as Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Engineering. A complete higher education system for undergraduates, master and doctoral postgraduates has been developed.

The university is well known for its high-quality and well-structured teaching staff with enterprising and initiative characters. Among its 1,810 full-time teachers are one academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, five dual-employed academicians, six professors of the Recruitment Program of Global Experts, two experts of the Young Overseas High-level Talents Introduction Plan, two experts of National Plan for the Special Support of High-level Talents, five Chief Scientists of Project 973, one national-level famous teacher, seven winners of the National Science Found for Distinguished Young Scholars, four Chang Jiang Scholars, nine experts of the National Talents Project, 39 winners of the New Century Excellent Talents Program of MOE, and four teams listed in Chang Jiang Scholars and Innovation Team Development Program.

As a vice president member institution of China Electricity Council, NCEPU takes full advantage of the university council to constantly deepen the industry-university collaboration. It has already developed strategic cooperation relations with about 30 large high-tech domestic and overseas enterprises of power, coal, telecommunications, and equipment manufacturing. They have cooperated closely on big research projects, construction of experiment or research centers, postdoctoral or postgraduate workstations. As a result of the cooperation, the exploitation and industrialization of scientific and technological research have been accelerated, with more than 760 scientific projects being annually signed with some innovative enterprises.

The university has been engaged in its educational internationalization, and developed substantive cooperation with over 120 world-famous universities and research institutes in the U.S., the U.K., France, Russia, Japan, etc. It has also attained mutual recognition of related disciplines with many universities abroad and established Confucius institutes in the U.S. and Egypt. Four Talents Recruitment Bases have been listed in the Program of Introducing Talents of Discipline to Universities (Program 111). The university has implemented programs of international cooperation at various levels, such as “1+1” and “2+2” dual-degree master programs, and bachelor-master programs.

At this new historical juncture, NCEPU has committed itself to the education of high-quality innovative talents, high-level scientific research, and first-class service for the society. It is now striving to build up itself into a multi-disciplinary, research-oriented, and high-level international university with distinguished features.
