Technical and Engineering Campus of Shahid Beheshti University (formerly known as Power and Water University of Technology) (PWUT) (Persian: دانشگاه صنعت آب و برق Dāneshgāh-e San'ate Aabo Bargh) is a state university of technology, engineering and science in Iran. PWUT is also the technical training center for power and water industries in Iran.
Around 120 academic staff with 100 labs and workshops provide an environment for the education of trainees from regional electric companies, power plants, and water and wastewater companies. The university is in northeast of Tehran, Iran. It is named after Hassan Abbaspour, former Iranian Minister of Energy, who was killed in 1981.
Programs are offered at Bachelors, Masters and PhD levels. In addition, PWUT conducts a short courses aimed at upgrading or refreshing the knowledge and skills of practitioners. PWUT is accredited by the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology of Iran and administered by a board of trustees comprising academicians and representatives of national organizations professors.
Power and Water University of Technology Wikipedia
The Technical Power Systems Training Center was founded in the northeast of Tehran on 1970 to improve the knowledge of technologists and engineers employed in power and water industries. Its activities continued on a limited level until 1980. At that time, special consideration of Hassan Abbaspour (Minister of Energy) for training experts in power and water industries and the efforts of Mohammad Sadegh Ghazizadeh, Mohammad Ahmadian and Kabir Sadeghi lead to promotion of the Technical Power Systems Training Center to a research and training center which was responsible for training to undergraduate level.
The Ministry of Science, Research and Technology approved the institution to be changed into the Faculty of Power and Water in 1991. It was changed into Shahid Abbaspour (Power and Water) University of Technology in 2005. It also functions as a faculty under the University of Applied Science and Technology (UAST), at least for the associate degree program in Computer Software in particular, for which UAST awards the degree, while PWUT issues the official transcript.
The university has graduate programs in Electrical, Mechanical and Civil Engineering. In spring 2013, PW University of Technology was merged into the Shahid Beheshti University.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty has three departments:Power Engineering Department
Electronics & Computer Department
Control & Instrumentation Department
The faculty has 12 laboratories, 11 specialized workshops, and 47 faculty members.
The Energy Systems Faculty has 11 laboratory units, 8 workshop units and 13 specialized units together with 22 faculty members. The main research areas are in the field of power plant industry and related issues like life estimation, corrosion and failure analysis, energy management, new energies, energy conversion systems including turbo-mechanism, heating systems, etc.
The Faculty of Water (Civil) Engineering started its activities in 1985. Several master's degrees in Civil Engineering are offered by the faculty. The facultu has four departments:Water Resources Engineering
Water and Waste water Engineering
Structural and Geo technical Engineering
Th faculty was created in 1991. It offers M.A. and B.A. degrees in management and accounting. Short-term courses in management and accounting for related industries are offered.
