Faculty & Staff

From the beginning of the establishment of the department of physics in 1967, the department tried to conform all the educational programs to creditable departments of physics around the world. We see that the number of graduate students published theses in international journals exceed one hundred. The faculty include leaders in major areas of physics in Iran. Today more than 350 undergraduates and 250 plus graduate students are being supervised by 31 faculty members, sometimes invited professors from inside or outside of the country.
