Amirkabir University of Technology, formerly called the Tehran Polytechnic, is a public research university located in Tehran.
AUT is Iran’s first technical university and referred to as the "Mother of Engineering Universities". Acceptance to the university is competitive and entry into undergraduate and graduate programs requires scoring among the top 1% of students in the nationwide university entrance exams known as "concours".
The university was founded in 1928 as a standard academy and went technological in 1956 with five engineering departments. Six months before the victory of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, Tehran Polytechnic was renamed after the Iranian prime minister, Amir Kabir (1807–52).
AUT has signed agreements with international universities for research and educational collaboration. It is one of the leading universities in e-learning systems launched in 2004.
