Information about the project
Thematic Knowledge Generation and sharing within Academic Environment
Being the oldest institute of Higher learning, University of Tehran holds nearly a century of material on academia and its interaction with society. For nearly a century, it was at the forefront of modern information generation and distribution. It is one of the biggest generators of E-Content in Farsi. Currently it operates the only integrated Academic Intelligence system within Iranian university landscape. The system not only integrates the day to day and traditional information support roles, but furthermore offers unparalleled opportunity for gauging academic performance as well as impact of knowledge generated. As a member of Iran Consortia on National Content, University of Tehran played a major role in making these materials and services to a wider audience. Our success is reflected in the general consensus that our university is no longer confined to Tehran but rather encompasses the whole Iran. UT currently has branches in Aras FEZ, Caspian Sea, Qom, Karaj as well as Kish Island.
