Welcome Message from the President

Welcome to Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic). Established in 1958, AUT is the oldest higher education technical university in Iran. Tehran Polytechnic was renamed in 1979 as Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT), after Amirkabir who was the founder of the first Technology Center (Darolfonoun) in 1851 in Iran. AUT was so renowned in the 1960s that was chosen as the first choice of most of the applicants, even though they had multiple options. Highly acclaimed presidents such as Habib Nafisi, and Dr. Mohammad Ali Mojtahedi had also important roles in this outstanding academic growth. As we celebrate our 55th anniversary, it will become obvious how much our past has shaped our present.

AUT is currently the highest ranked technical university in the country. The simple formula for achieving this high rank among research and scientific centers is great students, highly qualified faculty members, and their outstanding collaboration in research and educational activities. It is worth mentioning that our student body is among the best qualified in the country. The ultimate goal of AUT is to serve the society by defining and modeling the technological research university of the 21th century which will continue to be a resource for a lifetime for its students and alumni.

We appreciate your interest, and invite you to visit our campus or our website. You are always welcome at Amirkabir University of Technology.
