About This Partner

Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) is a public university with a traditional focus on science and technology but developing into other areas such as management and humanities.  BIT was founded in 1940 in Yan’an, Shaanxi Province and was relocated to Beijing in 1949. The following year, the main campus and the Departments of Math, Physics and Chemistry of the Institut Franco-Chinois were merged with BIT.  BIT has always formulated its strategies in light of national strategic needs and global developments in science and technology and education, and in accordance with its own strengths and missions. These strategies include: consolidating its strengths in mechanical and vehicle engineering and automation; leveraging its advantages and distinctive programs in IT-related disciplines; and developing new strengths in aerospace engineering. BIT will build its strengths in both science and engineering, and simultaneously develop disciplines in management and humanities.

BIT has three campuses in Beijing: the Zhongguancun Campus, Liangxiang Campus and Xishan Experimental Area.  BIT has four faculties—Faculty of Mechanical and Transportation Engineering, Faculty of Information and Electronics,  Faculty of Natural Sciences and Materials, Faculty of  Humanities and Social Sciences—with 19 colleges and numerous advanced scientific research centers. It currently has about 25,000 full-time students.
