As a strategic plan, IUT has started to increase its international ties with other well-known institutions all around the world, more than before, in past ten years. We have successfully been able to observe a sharp and fast increase (10 fold increase since 1999) in the number of agreements signed by IUT and other internationally recognized universities. The aim is to expand our scientific relation through exchange of scientists, faculty and students, offering joint degree programs and conducting joint research projects.
Scientists from various countries are also regularly invited to offer short courses, lecturers, or consultation services to the faculty or PhD students. Each year a number of IUT academic members spend their sabbatical leaves at prominent universities around the world as well as attend international conferences here and abroad. Also, annually, many of IUT PhD students are sent to the accredited universities abroad for their sabbatical leaves for about 6-9 months.
The office of International Relations supports the University's commitment to internationalization and coordinates services and programs for international students, scholars and alumni. This office also aims to provide an effective corporate publicity for Isfahan University of Technology, to promote and enhance the University's image and reputation on international level.
