Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University is a public university in Tehran, Iran. It was founded in 1980. Its first president was Ghodratollahe Toorang and it was named after Mohammad Ali Rajaee, the president of the country in that time after he was assassinated. The university is located in the north of Tehran which called Lavizan.

Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University provides both undergraduate and graduate programs in seven departments for typical students and teachers hired by the Ministry of Education.The education programs of typical students are separated from teacher's education programs in order to provide professional education for each group. The University is a public university, as a result budget of education and research is provided by the government of Iran. Students are accepted into the university by Iranian University Entrance Exam (Konkur) which conducted by the ministry of science and technology, winning prestigious scientific awards like Khwarizmi as well as direct postgraduate programs of the ministry of science for top ranking students. The university located in Tehran; as a result accepts some top students of provincial universities as guest and transfer students in competitive situations every year.


Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering[edit]

The department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in three engineering disciplines: software engineering, electrical engineering and electronics engineering.

Dr.Saeed Olyaee is currently chair man of the department.

Department of Mechanical Engineering[edit]

The department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in four engineering disciplines: automechanics, manufacturing and production, metallurgy as well as refrigeration and heating System Engineering. Education in branch of manufacturing and production is with high qualified experiments due to equipped laboratories such as metrology lab, machine tools as well as welding and casting labs.Furthermore, Bachelor's degree (B.SC.) of machine tools and die designing in minor of manufacturing and production engineering are also offered in mechanical engineering department.

Dr. GholamHassan Payghaneh is currently chair man of the department.

SRTTU has Journal of Computational and Applied Research in Mechanical Engineering (JCARME) for publishing recent research in the computational and applied mechanical engineering. Original research papers from all branches of the mechanical engineering are published in the Journal.

Journal of Technology of Education (JTE) is another Journal of SRTTU which has focused on research for increasing quality level of science and engineering education by using new technologies.

Book Publishing[edit]

Publication office of Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University (SRTTU) was established in 1998 in order to publish research books of faculties and researchers of the university.

Research Laboratories[edit]

Brain and Intelligent Systems Research Laboratory (BISLab)[edit]

Brain and Intelligent Systems Research Laboratory (BISLab)[1] started its research activities with one principal investigator,Dr. Reza Ebrahimpour, and one full-time researcher, Soheil Faridi in 2009. The lab activities are increased gradually by adding more students in order to research on the areas of:

  • Human and Machine Vision
  • Biologically Motivated Object Recognition
  • Neural Networks
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Multiple Classifier Systems
  • Computational Neuroscience
  • Artificial Intelligence

Rajaee Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (RAIL)[edit]

Rajaee Artificial Intelligence Laboratory was founded in 2004 and Hamidreza Shayegh is currently the supervisor of the lab. The recherches in the laboratory is mostly concentrated on preparing teams for Robocup competitions. The lab has teams in following fields:

  • Rescue Simulation
  • Soccer Simulation 2D
  • Soccer Simulation 3D
  • Deminer Autonomous

Members of the lab are also engaged in Machine Vision and Brain Computer Interface researches in affiliation with BISLab.
