    Developing Science and Technology in Iran

    By Mehdi Zarghamee

    In early 1970s, Iran had just started industrialization, but the desire to develop true science and technology in Iran was a dream of the many members of the faculty of our university of other universities in Iran. My talk will cover a brief historic presentation of conditions that prevailed in Iran during sixties and seventies, the mandate set in the founding of our university. I will describe our thoughts about how we thought we could realize this dream. The challenge was how to inculcate in the minds of our young faculty a sense for scientific culture and technological innovation, which had become deep rooted in the West and had advanced their societies and was totally unknown in Iran. What was done and where we succeeded to realize part of this dream and where we failed, what changed in the following decades, and finally what does the future hold for the younger generation of Iranian scientists and engineers.

    2020 SUTA Awards WInners

    Sharif University of Technology (SUTA) hereby announces the recipients of SUTA awards 2020. As usual, there were many qualified candidates in each category making it hard for the Awards Committee to select the winners.

    Dr. Amin’s Lifetime Achievement Award

    Professor Mohammad Durali, the long serving professor of Mechanical Engineering Department of our university, is the winner of this year’s Dr. Amin’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Durali (himself a Sharif graduate) has been a Professor in Sharif since his graduation from MIT in 1980. His major research activities have been in system design, industrial control, system dynamics, turbomachinery, and propulsion. Throughout the years, he has developed strong industrial relationship and most of his projects are funded by major industries. His projects cover a long list of accomplishments with applications in diverse fields ranging from robotics to power plants. For nearly 40 years, Dr. Durali has been a source of knowledge and inspiration to Sharif students both on campus and also in his own company (Durali Design and Automation).

    Following its decade long tradition, it is SUTA’s privilege to recognize professor Durali as yet another brilliant and hardworking member of Sharif family whose steady contributions to students, university, and industry span four decades.

    Alumni Achievement Award

    With a list full of qualified alumni, it has been a tremendously difficult task to choose only one winner. This year, SUTA selected Dr. Adel Ferdosipour, the anchorman of the popular TV program ‘Navad’ and a lecturer at the Industrial Engineering Department of our university, as the winner of this year’s Alumni Achievement Award. Dr. Ferdosipour received his BS and MS in industrial engineering from Sharif in 1997 and 1999 and later obtained his PhD in media management from Tehran University.

    In his brilliant career as a TV producer and anchorman, he has exhibited utmost professionalism, intelligence, charisma, and a solid uncompromising character which turned him into one of the most popular TV personalities of the country. In many occasions, he attributed his success partially to the education he received in Sharif. Dr. Ferdosipour is a perfect example of how the world class educational system of our university combined with the personal enthusiasm and interest can lead to success stories beyond the technical fields contributing to the well-being of the society in alternative ways.

    Distinguished Service Award

    Ms. Mehrnoush Naderi, a lab manager in chemistry department of our university, is the winner of this year’s Distinguished Service Award. A graduate of Sharif (both BS and MS), she has been a lab manager for over 30 years serving generations of Sharif students. In addition, she has been an active member of the Board of Trustees of the alumni association organizing many homecoming events for Sharif graduates.
