Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT) was originally established in October of 1956. The initial core of the university was formed under the name “Tehran Polytechnic” in order to expand the activities of two technical institutes of the time: “Civil Engineering Institute” and the “Higher Art Center”.
University of Amirkabir has more than 16 different engineering programs to explore and over 60 technical graduate programs.
There are 28 research centers, 16 centers of excellence and 250 research/educational labs that host respective BS, MS, and PhD students. Research labs essentially serve as the backbone of centers of excellence for developing new ideas and prototyping them with either simulations, experiments or both.
The career center at AUT is governed by specialists who foster small businesses and help them expand, while supporting any start up relating to technology with goals in science.
This office helps small to medium businesses in the area of applicable research, engineering design, reverse engineering, technology transfer and commercialization of research to establish themselves in a competitive job market.
Student career counselling, assisting employers in finding recruitments from Amirkabir alumni, organizing workshops and directing new ideas in a lucrative path are some of the other provided services. Students are encouraged to stop by and explore all the services and resources available.
AUT’s Students Office creates a culture of care for students and their families by providing exemplary programs and services designed to enhance students’ academic and personal life.
The library and document center at AUT is the largest technical and engineering library in Iran’s capital and one of the richest academic libraries in the technical and engineering field in the region. This library includes a central library and 16 satellitic libraries in Tehran and Bandar Abbas and offers visitors reading rooms, books, journals, papers, disks and databases.
The Wellness Center at AUT offers counseling services in the form of individual counseling, education, marriage, family, children and teenagers counseling.
AUT is located in the heart of the most dynamic city in Iran. Tehran, the capital of Iran is the largest and the most diverse city in this country. Surrounded by the oldest and the most vibrant neighborhoods of Tehran, AUT has always been a central hub for art and culture. Tehran City Theatre (Teatr-e-Shahr) is the largest performing arts complex in Tehran and is just steps away from AUT. The Artistic Center of Tehran also borders with AUT from the east. Valiasr Street, the longest street in Tehran and probably one the longest in the world, is lined by trees so tall that cover its lively commercial centers.
