Sharif University of Technology- International Campus History




Kish Nonprofit-Nongovernmental Higher Education Institute was established on Kish Island in 1995 with an official permit from the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (MSRT); later in 2004 Sharif University of Technology (SUT) was entrusted with its management. The policy of increasing the number of international programs aiming to attract international students led to the launch of joint programs with Monash University of Australia as well as Multimedia University (MMU) in Malaysia. Following the official transfer of Kish University to SUT in 2009, the education and research activities of SUT-International Campus with the goal of developing higher education in Iran continued. Since then, more than 2000 students have been graduated from SUT in a number of engineering and management fields. Admission to the campus can be made either by submitting a direct application or through the nationwide university entrance examination at undergraduate and graduate levels.
