NCEPU has greatly improved its academic programs and a complete educational system for bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D. students has been firmly established. Currently, NCEPU maintains 54 bachelor’s programs, 52 master’s programs, 20 Ph.D. programs, 3 first-level disciplines authorized to confer Ph. D. degrees, 2 mobile stations of post-doctoral scientific research, 1 post-doctoral project workstation, 2 key disciplines at the national level, 13 key disciplines at the provincial and ministerial level, 10 key laboratories at the provincial and ministerial level, 1 research center for Beijing energy development, and some professional degree programs including Master’s Program of Business Administration and Master’s Program of Applied Engineering.
Since the “Tenth Five-year Plan,” NCEPU has undertaken 542 scientific projects at the national level from National Natural Science Fund, “863” Program and “973” Program. And 57 of these projects have won the Awards for Scientific and Technological Progress at the national, provincial and ministerial levels. In 2007, the scientific funds reached 240 million yuan. In addition, the Science Park of NCEPU is designated as one of the National-level College Science Parks in China.
Zealously promoting diverse international exchanges and cooperation such as 2+2 baccalaureate degree joint-education programs and continuous joint-education programs from bachelor to master degrees, NCEPU has established cooperative ties with more than 60 distinguished universities and scientific institutions in Europe, North America and other parts of the world. More than 100 international students are currently studying on campus.
Based on the long-term educational experience in electric power engineering, NCEPU has established a close relationship with power industry. At present, NCEPU is jointly constructed by the Ministry of Education and the University Directorate, which is composed of State Grid Corporation of China, China Southern Power Grid Co., Ltd., China Huaneng Group, China Datang Corporation, China Huadian Corporation, China Guodian Corporation and China Power Investment Corporation.
School Features
Through a long-term educational exploration, NCEPU has gradually formed its own striking features.
The school spirit “Perseverance, Solidarity, Devotion, Eminence” has been playing a key role in achieving the prosperity of NCEPU and shows the true quality and good behavior of the teachers, students and leaders at all levels in the dramatic process of running the university.
Along with a series of distinctive and dominant disciplines, the academic discipline system to serve the power industry is firmly established. Facing the development of renewable energy in the world and focusing on new energy research, NCEPU is dedicated to setting up a new discipline system of “Extensive Power Concept” in order to improve the service for power industry, based on dominant disciplines and supported by the disciplines of liberal arts and sciences.
Featuring practice- and capability-oriented cultivation of professionals, NCEPU focuses its education on laying solid foundations, raising student capabilities, stressing innovation and comprehensive development, whose teaching system in engineering education is composed of four modules including basic experiment, intramural practice, simulation, and outside-campus engineering practice. As the cradle of senior electrical talents in China, NCEPU has fostered many outstanding graduates, some of whom have become the academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, senior technical and managerial talents in the power industry.
