Buali Sina University, also written Bu-Ali Sina University(Persian: دانشگاه بوعلي سينا‎), is a university in the city of Hamedan in Hamedan province of Iran. The university was first established with the assistance of France in February 1973. It is one of the best universities of Iran. For example, Buali Sina University is in the same class as of Isfahan University of Technology, Tabriz University, and Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. Its most popular, prominent and high quality programs are in the fields of Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Agricultural Engineering.


The first steps for forming and founding Buali Sina University was taken after a treaty between Iran and France governments in Esfand 1351(February 1973). This university was established in 1353(1975), and started its academic activities with the admission of several students in a few programs. At present, Buali Sina University has five Faculties, one Higher Education Complex and two Junior school. Faculties include: Faculty of Agriculture, Faculty of Art and Architecture, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Literature and Humanities, Faculty of Science, Malayer Junior Faculty of Education and Junior School of Veterinary Medicine.

The University has about 300 full-time faculty members who have graduated from different universities around the world and Iran. The university also has about 7000 students who are studying in 63 educational programs at B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels and about 45000 students have graduated from the university since 1976.

This university has 32 departments, most of which admit students at B.Sc. and M.Sc. levels. Therefore, this university is moving toward a bright future with assured steps, and it will create and develop more suitable methods to meet the basic needs of this province and region like educating expert and skillful persons and supporting the government organization.

Average undergraduate GPA of Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering students is very low in comparison with other universities in Iran such as Sharif University of Technology (SUT)- for instance the average GPA of class 2010 civil engineering students is about 12 out of 20 (2.4 out of 4). It is only because professors of these two faculties are very difficult and strict.
