Further cooperation between China’s Jiaotong College and Russia’s University of Transport has seen high-quality educational resources, advanced teaching concepts and management experience propel the two institutions to achieve higher goals.

The Joint Jiaotong College of Beijing Union University & Russian University of Transport was established in 2019 and the latest initiatives were introduced on April 20, 2020, following a decision by the 66th Standing Committee of the fifth party committee. This new development adds the College of Urban Rail Transit and Logistics to form an internationally renowned organisation.

The initial recruitment phase in 2020 focused on logistics and transport engineering while the talent training model of Chinese-foreign cooperative education was also explored. The training goal is to cultivate compound and applied engineering technology and management talents with an international vision, which is in line with the integration of both Beijing and the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region and, further afield, the development of the "Belt and Road" initiative.
