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.

Student Life

Campus life

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.

Student Reviews

My opinion on the AUT as a first-ranked student
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Most of the lecturers are full of knowledge and supportive to students. However, there are some of them that I do not consider them well-qualified for this renowned university. In short, I have gained good knowledge and experience at the AUT.

My point of view in a simple and short way
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

In general, I can say that the professors are very well-educate, and in Iran is the best university for engineering.

Sweet Tragedy
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars

Despite the tuition and money, they receive from students, we are faced with a lack of amenities in the dormitory and a lack of educational facilities, especially in laboratories.
