MNA – Based on the latest data released by Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020, Sharif University of Technology is the first Iranian university which now stands among the 250 world universities top in computer sciences.
Sahrif University ranks amongst 501-600 universities worldwide, according to the same report.
In engineering and technology, the Iranian university ranks among 301-400 world universities, it added.
Sharif University of Technology, founded in 1966, is one of the largest engineering schools in Iran. When it was established, the university had just 54 members of faculty, and 412 students. It now has more than 10,000 students.
The university, which has a reputation in Iran as being one of the country’s most prestigious higher education institutions, offers a range of graduate and postgraduate degrees in its 15 departments, and does not only offer engineering courses.
Among other non-engineering schools are its Department of Philosophy of Science, its School of Management and Economics, and its Department of Languages and Linguistics.
Each department has its own laboratories, library, and workshops, and students can choose to take humanities and social sciences courses to complement their technical studies.
Admission for undergraduates wishing to study at Sharif University of Technology is tough. Only those obtaining the top 5 per cent of scores in Iran’s national entrance examination, carried out by the country’s Ministry of Culture and Higher Education, can enroll.
