Message from the University Chancellor

Once again, the bright season of fall arrives and the luminous scene of knowledge shines through with the efforts of the scholars. The spring of science once again manifests itself with freshness and vivacity. It is worthwhile for the performers in the scene of science to once again elevate to the heights of awareness.
The constant synchronization of these days with the holy defense week and the bravery of the warriors of Islam, reminds us the duty of knowledge seekers is to serve people and their prosperity with courage and freedom.
I would like to congratulate the beginning of the academic year to all the professors, staff and students, especially our ‘new students’ and hope that by effort and perseverance, the coming academic year will be victorious, more fortunate and fruitful than ever. I hope that despite the limited resources and with the best possible implementation of our strategic plan, we would be more successful than ever before in promoting the university and serving our dear Islamic Iran.
The coordination and cooperation of the large family of Tehran Polytechnic will undoubtedly be a huge investment in the future and by God’s will we will build a better future.
