Xi'an Shiyou University
The Xi'an Petroleum Institute, formerly the Xi'an Petroleum School, was renamed in May 2003, with the approval of the Ministry of Education, the Xi'an Shiyou University. The Xi'an Petroleum School was founded in 1951, and then in 1958, with the approval of the State Council, the Xi'an Petroleum Institute was established. In 2000, the Xi'an Petroleum Institute was no longer affiliated with the China National Petroleum & Gas Corporation (CNPC), and it was to be run as a regular university by the central and local governments in joint efforts but chiefly administered by the Shaanxi Provincial Government. Over the past fifty-two years, since its foundation, the university has developed into a teaching and research oriented university, forming an engineering-centered multi-disciplinary university incorporating science, economics, management, liberal arts, law and education.
