Attracting the best talents from the perspective of educating the elite forces of the community and helping to solve the fundamental problems of the country as well as extending the boundaries of knowledge is a responsibility beyond the achievements of the past, borne by the Sharif University of Technology and today’s Iran society.
Naturally, this responsibility requires material resources and spiritual support. Despite the brilliant performance of the past 50 years, Sharif University of Technology is facing challenges such as remarkable shortage of financial resources in the future. Reduction of per capita budget by government has caused university underperformance to equip laboratories, maintain facilities and services, supply professors. This all has threatened the future of the university and its students.
