The Engineering Science Department at UT is a leader in basic science and engineering research and education. In basic science we explore exciting current research directions in most of the major fields. In engineering, we look for important connections with other disciplines that may inspire interesting and useful mathematics, and where innovative mathematical reasoning may lead to new insights and applications.
The Department currently has about 40 faculty members, including many current and former faculties who have received the highest distinctions including a distinguished young scientist in civil engineering by the Academy of Science of Iran; Apointed as a TWAS young affiliate for 2008-2013; Education Prize in engineering 2013;
Instructors in basic science and engineering, have the opportunity to reside at UT for two or three years and work with our faculty. Teaching loads are kept light to provide good conditions for launching research programs. We aim to have roughly 10 Instructors in the Department at any given time.
We are fortunate to attract outstanding students at all levels. Our graduate program trains students for top academic and industrial research positions, and typically has over 80 students enrolled. UT undergraduates are top performers at the National and International Competition. Approximately 1000 students are enrolled in one of our two undergraduate programs: Basic science and Engineering Science.
Our Department benefits from the lively Engineering Science community in the Tehran area including the outstanding departments at Sharif and other nearby universities.
The Engineering Science Research Institute is a wonderful resource for bringing visitors and hosting important colloquia and workshops. Weekly seminars are held at our Department; many organized by graduate students. Our annual EngSci Lecture series brings distinguished speakers on the latest developments.
Our excellent staff helps us run the Department. Most of them can be found in Department Headquarters and in the EngSci Academic Services office.
