Aerospace engineering is the primary field of engineering concerned with the development of aircraft and spacecraft. Students of aerospace engineering apply concepts encompassing mathematics, science and technology to the creation of aircraft and accompanying equipment. Special fields of research include aero-structures, aerodynamics, flight dynamics and control, propulsion, satellite and space integration. Aerospace engineering may be studied at the bachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D. levels in six different departments, namely Aerospace Engineering, Aerodynamics, Propulsion, Aero-structures, Flight dynamics and control, and space engineering.
Faculty of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering as the first faculty in Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering in Iran established in 1954, has a significant contribution to industry. The faculty offers undergraduate and postgraduate course of studies in 4 different departments including Geodesy, Geographic Information System (GIS), Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (RS). The educational programs in the faculty aims the endless possibilities of Geomatics engineering offered to the students to help them achieve their future destiny.
The history of the Faculty of Industrial Engineering goes back to 1993, were it was formed as a department within the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. In 1999, this department was separated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering to continue its activities in different educational programs. Graduates of this Faculty have high acceptance rate in the industry and an outstanding success to be admitted to higher programs. With 23 full-time academic members, this Faculty is dedicated to improve the quality of education and research at KNTU. The research in this Faculty is concentrated on different areas of information technology and industrial engineering. The Faculty comprises of four Departments, namely Industrial Engineering, Social Economic Systems, Financial Engineering and Information Technology and offers Educational programs at different levels of Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D.
Rooted in the communication school which goes back over 90 years ago, the Faculty of Computer Engineering has been launched in 2013. This faculty is placed in the Seyed Khandan campus closed to the ministry of communications and information technology. The Faculty of Computer Engineering is home of top ranking student in the Iranian University Entrance Exam (concours), and among the top five faculties in Iran. The Faculty is home of four departments, namely Artificial Intelligence, Computer System Architecture, Software Engineering and Computer Networks, creating an amicable environment for undergraduate and graduate students. The Faculty offers various computer engineering disciplines at the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. levels, benefiting highly qualified and well-experienced faculty and staff members graduated from the top rank universities.
K. N. Toosi University of Technology began its activities in the field of Materials Science and Engineering in 2001, with the establishment of a M.Sc. degree in Characterization and Selection of Engineering Materials Program. In 2010, the activities and scope of the Materials Program were expanded to offer a Ph.D. degree, followed in 2011 by another M.Sc. degree in Metals Forming and a B.Sc. degree in Industrial Metallurgy. In the year 2013, with the approval of KNTU as well as the Council for Promoting Higher Education in the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, the Materials Program was promoted into the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering. The faculty began its e-Learning Program, offering M.Sc. degrees in Characterization and Selection of Engineering Materials in 2013, and Metals Forming in 2016. Another M.Sc. degree in Nanomaterials was launched in 2017.
Physics, as a subject concerned with the observation and understanding of all basic phenomena in the categories of mater and energy, forms the basis of all the other natural sciences right up to life sciences and medicine as well as the bases for engineering and technology. The Faculty of Physics interests mainly revolve around fundamental and applied physics (with more emphasis given to the latter) in a wide variety of topics and specializations. The Faculty members and students work on problems where extreme conditions may reveal new behavior; from cosmology (the cluster of galaxies or the entire universe) to elementary particle physics; from collisions of nuclei at low energy to the effects of interaction of radiation with matter which are important to industrial and medical applications; from individual atoms to unusual materials, such as high temperature super conductors and those that are important to micro-electronics to nanotechnology and biology.
Chemistry plays an integral role in today’s scientific accomplishments. As science has become increasingly interdisciplinary, fundamental scientific problems focus on the chemical nature of matter. The Faculty of Chemistry is committed to cultivate a safe, inclusive and fair environment where our staff, faculty, researchers and students can thrive as they advance new chemical frontiers through research, innovation and collaboration. The Faculty is comprised of four departments, namely Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Peptide Chemistry. With more than 1400 graduates at different level, The Faculty of Chemistry is proud to have a significant contribution in industries.
