Over the past 100 years development, the school has developed into a multi-discipline high reputation institute in China, and sent out over ten thousand graduates to China and the rest of world, becoming one of the important human resources for Chinese society in field of energy and power engineering. Many of them have become backbones and leaders the society of energy and power engineering, making great contributions to the nation. Meanwhile, the school is playing important role in academic community of energy and power engineering.
The school has its high standards in research and education, and over 200 teachers and staffs are working in education and research, providing excellent teaching and research resources and facilities for students and teachers, enabling the students to learn the up-to-date knowledge and the teachers to conduct the advanced research.
