Babol Noshirvani University of Technology is a technical university in Babol, a city in Mazandaran Province in the north of Iran, 20 km south of the Caspian Sea. It is the only technical university in the north of iran. According to 2016 SCImago Institutions Rankings, Noshirvani University of Technology stands as the 11th university of the country and 584th among world universities.[1]

History[edit]

Noshirvani Institute of Technology was founded in 1970 by a philanthropist of Iran, the late Seyed Hossein Fallah Noshirvani. The college is situated in Babol a city in Mazandaran Province in the north of Iran, 20 km south of the Caspian Sea

The amphitheater in Mazandaran has video projection, sound track system and lighting system required for the local and national educational seminars and other college and local functions. The amphitheater is furnished with 750 seats (550 seats in the main hall and 200 seats in balcony). Adjacent to the amphitheater is an administration block housing Director’s & Deputy Director’s offices.

In 1972 the institution was named Higher Technical Teacher's Training College where the selected students were trained to be technical teachers in Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. In 1979 through the University Commission, the Higher Technical Teacher's College was amalgamated in the University of Mazandaran as the university Engineering College offering undergraduate and graduate courses.

It was established in 1970 as the Technical Teachers Training Institute of Babol. In 1979 it amalgamated with the University of Mazandaran and operated as University of Mazandaran Faculty of Engineering. In 2005, the process of independence from University of Mazandaran started and until March 2008 it was operated as Noshirvani Institute of Technology (Babol Noshiravani Technical and Education Complex).

As of March 2008 it was upgraded to the Babol (Noshirvani) University of Technology.[2]

Student activism[edit]

Student activist Sayed Ziaoddin "Zia" Nabavi attended the university as an engineering student before being banned from higher education for his anti-government political activities.[8] Along with other banned students, he formed the Council to Defend the Right to Education to defend their rights to continue attending university. Following his participation in "Green Revolution" protests following President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's disputed reelection, Sayed Ziaoddin Nabavi was arrested along with his wife,[9] and he is currently serving a ten-year prison sentence on charges of "creating unease in the public mind".[10]
