Faculty of Engineering and Technology
The Faculty of Engineering and Technology started in 1995 with the purpose of establishing an effective engineering center in Qazvin and training manpower for the industrial projects of the country on the road to scientific independence. The Faculty has 48 staff teachers and there are 1309 students. The departments are: civil engineering, materials engineering, agricultural engineering (irrigation), agricultural biotechnology engineering, mining engineering (extraction), electrical engineering (control,power,communication), mechanical engineering (designing solidworks), and computer engineering (software).
|Course of Study||Level of Study|
In the near future, the courses of mining (exploration) and computer engineering (software) will be offered at bachelor’s level, and the courses of roads and transportation, materials engineering, agricultural engineering (irrigation), and mining engineering (extraction) at master’s level.
Graduates will fulfill civil needs of the society. They will be able to design, manage, and execute civil projects in roads, buildings, and water projects.
The three branches of transportation planning, structures, and soil and foundation are offeredonly at master’s level.
Materials engineering: ceramics and industrial metallurgy
Ensuring that materials used in the industry can work in a wide variety of environmental conditions is the business of materials engineers. Metals constitute a huge group of engineering materials whose excavation, purification, casting, shaping, alloying, and enhancement falls in the province of metallurgy. Industrial metallurgy aims to train specialists with knowledge of properties of metals who will be able to manage metal manufacturing systems.
Water engineering: irrigation
The students will learn about and be able to plan and manage, and deal with irrigation and drainage procedures, and teach the science to future students.
Much research in agricultural studies today has basis on modern technologies. For this reason, there is rising biotechnological research in the world on new farming and gardening processes, fight against blights and plagues, increasing crop yield, especially protein, starch, and oil, delaying crop ripening, industrial processing of agricultural products, and removing industrial pollutants from the environment. Thus the need to train effective specialists who can solve agricultural problems from a biotechnological perspective is evident.
zThe syllabus of the master’s course of agricultural biotechnology includes molecular genetics, tissue culture, microbiology, microchemistry, plant modification, and genetic engineering.
Mining engineering: extraction
This course of study deals with designing procedures for extracting minerals, both underground and on the ground, and with many mining operations like digging, firing, tunneling, maintaining underground spaces, mine ventilation, arranging ores, and carrying minerals out. The final product of all mining operation is enhanced minerals usable in the industry.
Electrical engineering: electrical control
The widespread use of various kinds of electrical systems in factories, industrial centers, and manufacturing and servicing enterprises for boosting human ability to utilize natural resources for cultural, social, and economic purposes illustrates the need for and the importance of this course of study.
Mechanical engineering: designing solidworks
The students will learn how to design and calculate the components and mechanisms of different machines. Graduates will be able to get a job in industries such as automobile manufacturing, agricultural and road-building machines manufacturing, military industries, and textile.
Computer engineering: software
The increasing use of computers in all national science and trade bodies necessitates the training of manpower skillful in appropriate computer use. Graduates will have necessary knowledge and skill in the fields of programming, managing computer centers, and utilizing and rendering computer services.
This course of study began in 2004. Offering other branches of the science of computers at bachelor’s and master’s levels is a priority of this department.
