History[edit]

Noshirvani Institute of Technology was founded in 1970 by the Iranian philanthropist, the late Seyed Hossein Fallah Noshirvani as the Technical Teachers Training Institute of Babol, where select students were trained to become technical instructors at community colleges in fields related to Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. In 1979, the institute became a part of the University of Mazandaran, and was renamed as "College of Engineering", offering undergraduate and graduate courses. In 2005, the process of independence from University of Mazandaran started, during which college of engineering was called Noshirvani Institute of Technology (Babol Noshiravani Technical and Education Complex). The institution was upgraded to Babol Noshirvani University of Technology in March 2008.[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.[19] 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,[20] and he is currently serving a ten-year prison sentence on charges of "creating unease in the public mind".[21]
