In the 1920s, it merged with two technical schools in Shanghai and Tangshan to form the Jiaotong University, which had three campuses in Beijing, Shanghai and Tangshan, respectively, changing its name to Beijing Railway Management School.

The Beijing campus was named National Jiaotong University, Beijing. In 1949, the Beijing campus was renamed Northern Jiaotong University.
