Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz is a major Iranian University in Ahvaz, Khuzestan, Iran. By the ISC ranking, Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz is 13th largest and top university in Iran.[2] SCU University is considered one of Iran's "Grade A" universities by Iranian Ministry of Science. The campus today has 276 acres (1.12 km2) and houses 13 colleges. In 2010, 4798 students were enrolled.[3]

In 1982 the university was renamed to "Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz" to commemorate Mostafa Chamran.
