Sharif University of Technology (SUT) is a public research university in Tehran, Iran and is widely considered to be the nation's leading institution for engineering and physical sciencedisciplines. The international campus of the university is located in Kish Island, Persian Gulf. Established in 1966 under the reign of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, it was formerly named the Aryamehr University of Technology and for a short period after the 1979 revolution, the university was called Tehran University of Technology. Following the revolution the university was named after Majid Sharif Vaghefi, who was one of the People's Mujahedin of Iran group's leaders who was killed by his friends because of his insistence on establishing an Islamic theocracy. Today, the university provides both undergraduate and graduate programs in 15 main departments. Funding for Sharif University is provided by the government and through private funding. Undergraduate admission to Sharif is limited to the top 800 of the 500,000 students who pass the national entrance examination administered annually by the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. Founded in 1966, SUT was established in order to train and supply a part of required expert human resources of the country on an equal level to credible universities of the world. Compared with other worldwide universities, it is a young and growing pioneer in both basic and applied sciences.
