The Beijing Institute of Petrochemical Technology owned a practice base in Yanshan Petrochemical Group, which located in Fangshan District. Students from chemical industry majors of BIPT come to the base every year to field work in the factory. And other majors' student also have a chance to visit the factory for one time during their college life. This is for deepen their understanding of theoretical knowledge and strengthen their competence.

International Cooperation[edit]

The BIPT has established a long-term stable cooperative relationship with some overseas universities; these universities sent students to each other to enhance academic exchanges every year. Some of the cooperated universities:

In 2014, the BIPT will open a new Mastère en sciences course in partnership with ESME Sudria.[3]

Future Development[edit]

Two separated campuses in Tsingyuan and Kangzhuang have long time been a bottleneck in the university’s evolvement, the opening of Line 4, Beijing Subway and the construction of Beijing–Shanghai High-Speed Railway has galloped local real estate price and which made a further expansion harder than ever. A recent decision in spring 2011 will compel the Economic and Management College garrison in Kangzhuang campus along while other ten colleges move to Tsingyuan campus, but students and professors of E&M College have been complaining the poor conditions and dispossessed surroundings of Kangzhuang campus.
