Shahid Madani University of Azarbaijan, commonly called only Azerbaijan University, was founded on 1987 in Tabriz as a branch of Tehran Teacher Education University. On 1988 Azerbaijan University became an independent university . The initial objective of the university was to training teachers in different area for the fulfillment of Iranian government educational development policies. The major concern of the university was focused on training teachers for high schools and technical schools.

With passing the time and changing of Iranian educational policies, the university turned to a general educational university. University has two campuses, one inside Tabriz, the other is in sub county of Tabriz in Azarshahr.[1]
