About the University

The university of Shahab Danesh was established in 1385 (2006) as the first non-governmental university in the field of science and technology in province of Qom with permission of Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology with the efforts of number of Amir-Kabir Industrial University professors.

The main goal of the university is presenting the higher education at the level of country's best universities and upbringing efficient engineers in the fields of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Information Technology Engineering, Civil Engineering, Graphics, Architecture, Industrial Engineering, Accounting, Management, and etc.  This university has about 3500 students at this time.

In the month of Aban of 1396, the ministry of Science, R

esearch announced hid agreement with upgrading the Institute of Higher Education of Shahab Danesh to university.

Admission of students is granted through university entrance examination performed by country sanjesh organization.  Admitted students will start their education according to regulations and requirements of Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology and after successful finishing of the course, they will receive their certificates with confirmation of the Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology just like the same procedure as in other universities.

This university has permission of offering the following courses:

Research:

Electrical Research Center:

Electrical Research Center of University of Shahab Danesh started its official activities in winter of 1393 in order to identify and flourish the students' research capacity and to reinforce the research abilities and linking to industries.  The active members in the center include 5 science committee and 20 excellent students from different specialties of electrical and biomedical engineering fields.

Objective:

 "Preparation of appropriate environment for performing knowledge-based and researchable activities in the fields of electrical, electronics, control, and other related fields in order to increase scientific and researchable abilities in institution and promote the center's abilities in linking to industry."

Knowledge-Based and Research Activities:

After preparation of suitable hardware and software requirements, the knowledge-based and research activities will desirably be continued until the program's objectives are achieved and the research center will stand in a suitable technical and scientific position.  Some of the pre-scheduled research activities in this section are:

1.    Introduction of practical local projects with consideration of scientific abilities and hardware facilities available at the center;

2.    Introduction of local research projects with capability of publishing the results in research and scientific journals;

3.    Establishment of effective communication with other active research centers of the institution and performing interdisciplinary researches.

4.    Strong relationship with industry and guiding some of the projects in industry in order to perform them at the research center.
