The Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) is a public research university in Iran that primarily focuses on science and engineering. Founded in 1929 as the Governmental Technical Institute, it is the first institution to train Iranian engineers. After several name changes and gaining additional faculties, it was awarded its university status in 1978 and took up its current name. In 2009, the university was named as one of Iran’s “8 Mother Universities” by the Ministry of Science.
Currently, the university is undergoing campus expansion to other cities. Its main campus remains in Tehran. It houses its faculty buildings, residential halls, administrative buildings, the main library, and research centers. It also provides facilities for social, sports, and leisure activities. These include a soccer stadium and courts for basketball, volleyball, and tennis. There are also campus facilities located in Arak and Behshahr. Furthermore, Infrastructures for new locations at Damavand and Noor are also in progress.
The Iran University of Science and Technology has 15 schools. They are Schools of (1) Automotive Engineering, (2) Railway Engineering, (3) Mathematics, (4) Chemistry, (5) Chemical, Petroleum and Gas Engineering, (6) Industrial Engineering, (7) Civil Engineering, (8) New Technologies, (9) Physics, (10) Computer Engineering, (11) Architecture and Environmental Design, (12) Mechanical Engineering, (13) Metallurgy and Materials Engineering, (14) Electrical Engineering, and (15) Management, Economy, and Progress Engineering.
These schools, in turn, operate their respective departments, providing educational and research services. Courses on offer in the university range from aerospace engineering and productivity management to solid mechanics and bioelectrical engineering. Moreover, the IUST runs its own E-learning Center and an International Campus for graduate students.
IUST is known for its five Centers of Excellence. They are for (i) Power System Automation and Operation, (ii) Advanced Materials and Processing, (iii) Experimental Solid Mechanics and Dynamics, (iv) Fundamental Studies in Structural Engineering, and (v) Islamic Architecture.
Lively research culture is being fostered at IUST. It is especially strong in some engineering and science fields. Research projects in such fields are being spearheaded by its research centers. They include the Cement Research Center, the Nanoptronics Research Center, and the Green Research Center, among others. Also, it is home to state-of-the-art laboratories for materials engineering, power electronic and electric magnetic fields research.
Academic support services are also available. The university provides students, staff, and faculty members with a virtual drive system, an educational video player system, and a learning management system. Moreover, there are other educational groups that provide holistic education. These are given by the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences, Department of Foreign Languages, and the Department of Islamic Studies.
D-index (Discipline H-index) only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline in
contrast to General H-index which accounts for publications across all disciplines.
Our research was coordinated by Imed Bouchrika, PhD, a computer scientist with a well-established record
of collaboration on a number of international research projects with different partners from the academic
community. His role was to make sure all data remained unbiased, accurate, and up-to-date.
We list only scientists having D-Index >= 30 within the area of
Engineering and Technology. If you or other scholars are not listed, we appreciate if you can
