Beijing University of Chemical Technology (simplified Chinese: 北京化工大学; traditional Chinese: 北京化工大學; pinyin: Běijīng Huàgōng Dàxué), abbreviated as BUCT, colloquially known in Chinese as Beihua (北化, Běihuà) or Huada (化大, Huàdà), is one of the outstanding universities in mainland China. BUCT was founded in 1958 and is affiliated with the Ministry of Education. As one of China's key institutions of higher learning, especially in chemistry studies, a member university of the Project 211, BUCT has developed from an institution of scientific specialties to a comprehensive university with a core curriculum of science, economic management, languages and other liberal arts.

The university, covering an area of 64.4 hectares, is composed of three campuses:

  • East campus (headquarters): conveniently located on the eastern section of the North Third Ring Road, southeast of the Asian Games Village, with a quiet and attractive environment.
  • West campus: near the Shangri-La Hotel enjoys an advantageous location on the central section of the West Third Ring Road.
  • North campus: locates in Changping, near Lake Shisanling.

Currently, the undergraduates in BUCT spend their first 2 years in the north campus and then transferred to the East section for the second half of the study.

The east campus is designated for all postgraduate students.

More than 1800 staff members are working on campus, including 7 academicians of the country and over 600 full and associate professors. Around 12000 students are currently studying at BUCT including more than 5000 for Master's or Doctoral degrees. There are 5 postdoctoral programs, 27 Ph.D. specialties, 50 master programs and 42 bachelor program specialties offered in the university. Chinese students and foreign students can apply in all specialties.

Research and academic achievements

BUCT has paid great attention to scientific research. It has built 15 research institutes and eight research centers including the State Key laboratory of Chemical Resource Engineering, State Key Laboratory of Organic-Inorganic Composites, the National research center of Carbon Fiber engineering technology, the Ministerial Research Center for Membrane Engineering and Technology, the Ministerial Center for High Gravity Technology, and the Key Laboratory of Science and Technology of Controllable Chemical Reactions. The university has published three kinds of academic journals, distributed both at home and abroad. In recent years, BUCT has undertaken a large number of research projects as state science and technology key tasks, and others supported by the National Science Foundation and various ministries and enterprises. This has not only strengthened technological cooperation ties with many large domestic enterprises, but also resulted in significant economic and social benefits.
