Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University (SRTTU), formerly the "American Institute of Higher Education Tehran", 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.

Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University (SRTTU) provides both undergraduate and graduate programs in eight faculties 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. SRTTU is a public university and therefore, the budget for education and research programs 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. SRTTU is located in the Northern part of Tehran, the capital of Iran. It has therefore the privilege of hosting some top students of provincial universities as guest and transfer students in competitive situations every year. SRTTU is one of two centers of UNEVOC-UNESCO in Iran.[1] The Campus of SRTTU is located in Lavizan, in north east of Tehran.
