NCUT's campus, based in the west part of the Beijing urban area, covers more than 34 hectares and has won awards as one of the most beautiful universities in Beijing. NCUT is a multidisciplinary university funded by the municipal government, with engineering as its strongest subject. Working in partnership with NCUT in Beijing – China's centre for international exchange and for scientific and technological innovation – will provide Brunel with opportunities for research collaboration, student exchange between the universities, staff development, and links with local government and industry.
The joint college – named Brunel London School, North China University of Technology – was given official approval by China’s Ministry of Education as a transnational education (TNE) college in 2019. The students are recruited through National College Entrance Examination (Gaokao) and will work towards degrees awarded jointly by both universities.
The college offers three degree programmes:
- Data Science and Big Data Technology
- Mechanical Design, Manufacturing and Automation
- Civil Engineering
Since the college was established in 2020, nearly 300 students have been recruited and are currently studying at NCUT
