Dr. Ahmadi noted that the ratio of professor to student at Tarbiat Modarres University ranks one or two among the country's universities.
At present, the ratio of professor to student at TMU is one in twelve and we are trying to have one professor for every ten students, he added: He added: "In the university's strategic plan, we aim to have a thousand faculty in front of 10,000 Iranian students and 2,000 foreign students." There are currently seven hundred faculty members at the university.
