The achievement of comprehensive development depends on the provision of knowledge-based
science and technology. One of the most basic activities of knowledge-based science
concerns the training of committed specialists who have deep concerns in their specialty
for national progress and development.
The structural engineering department of Tarbiat Modares University, as one of the
oldest educational departments of the university, started its educational programs
in 1985. It has managed to present a significant number of graduates (master and
doctorate) to the academic and research communities of the country so far. The main
research fields of this department are: the study of the behavior of the structural
systems, structural rehabilitation, microstructure and behavioral modeling of the
materials. The teaching staff of the department currently consists of full-time
professors, associate professors and assistant professors, and it also possesses
a well-equipped laboratory for graduate and postgraduate students. This department
also closely cooperates with civil engineering and marine structure departments.
The structural engineering department has also played a major role in the development
of Iran's scientific community including its active participation in the preparation
and development of standards, regulations, national building codes and other relevant
regulations and guidelines.
