History

Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT) was originally established in October of 1956.

Research

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.

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.
