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.

History and Mission[edit]

Noshirvani Institute of Technology was founded in 1970 by a great benevolent & honorable man and one of the greatest philanthropists of Iran, 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 college is constructed on 11 hectares land and occupying 3 big buildings and 4 large & spacious workshop and laboratories blocks housing 4 Engineering departments. NIT is proud to have the biggest, huge, and spacious amphitheater in Mazandaran. It is well equipped with all facilities required (video projection, advance sound track system and lighting system) required for the local & national educational seminars and other regular college and local functions. The amphitheater is furnished with 750 comfortable 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 this institution was named "Higher Technical Teacher's Training College" where the selected students were trained to be qualified technical teachers in Civil, Electrical, & Mechanical Engineering. In 1979 through the University Commission, the Higher Technical Teacher's College was amalgamated in the University of Mazandaran as University's Engineering College offering undergraduate and graduate courses NIT is a coeducational institution and is praised for its high disciplined status in the country. Our Noshirvani Engineering College continues to move forward with its tradition of excellence and leadership in engineering education, research and development. We are an innovative faculty with good ties with national industry, which ensures and expects that our students are taught a current and relevant curriculum by excellent professors and academic staff

Our intimate size and friendly educational environment help to create a welcoming atmosphere. When our academic staff is not teaching, they are making us proud on ground breaking research in relevant fields. They are always available for extra help outside class, provide guidance for educational and professional career development

It was established in 1970 as Technical Teachers Training Institute of Babol. In 1979 it amalgamated with 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 has been upgraded to the Babol (Noshirvani) University of Technology.[1]

Thomson Reuters ISI web of knowledge announces a list of world's most effective universities every year. NIT has been ranked as the 7th top university of technology in the country among top 1% universities of the world in June of 2015.[2]

Nanotechnology Research Institute[edit]

It is noteworthy that Professor Jahanshahi has been accused of plagiarizing scientific data in several of his publications, including "Subtractive chromatography for purification and recovery of nano-bioproducts" IET Proc. Nanobiotechnol. 152 pp. 121-126 (2005). These accusations were brought by his PhD supervisor, Prof. Andrew Lyddiatt, and refer to work performed by others at the University of Birmingham, but claimed by Jahanshahi as his own. They included the unacknowledged inclusion of data from other PhD students and colleagues in his own publications. Prof. Jahanshahi has never denied these cases. Dr Lyddiatt published details of the plagiarism in a written communication in IET Nanobiotechnol. (2007) 1 (4) p.68. In response, Lee Baldwin, the Managing Editor of this journal, thanked Dr Lyddiatt and apologized unreservedly for this failure of their peer review process.

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.[6] 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,[7] and he is currently serving a ten-year prison sentence on charges of "creating unease in the public mind".[8]
