History of Presidency

The founding broad of UUT was formed and started to work in summer 2005. Following the principled agreement of UUT establishment and with the special consideration of president Dr. Ahmadinejad and the officials attempts, an independent funding(budget) based on Iran government proposal and the Islamic parliament approval was allocated to the university. Obtaining educational and research activities permission in Information Technology (IT), Mechanical, and Industrial engineering, UUT officially started in February, 2007.

Constructional development of the university

In February 24th, 2007, UUT officially started to work in a 2 hector area land and in 2.5KM from Urmia along Band road and Sharchay river. The existing building on the campus with about 1500 sqm area had been previously constructed by regional water organization of the province as “snow and ice” studies and research building.
Student increase and urgent need for educational and administrative spaces made the university officials start the construction of the first faculty in September 2007. The first phase of Chemical engineering faculty in a land with 900 sqm area and 2500 sqm foundation was put into operation in October 2008. The need for a study hall and a computer site resulted in West Azarbaijan governor issuing the permission to begin the university’s administrative building construction by experienced constructors and with an eye-catching design in 850 sqm area at the same time with the chemical engineering faculty’s first phase of construction. Growth in student recruitment led to start the chemical engineering ' second phase in April 2009. This project, in addition to its connection to the central building and the first phase, created a unit building with unique features.

Transferring ownership of the electronic technology and food industry town to UUT with the aim of enhancing the interaction between industry and university elites is one of the valuable achievements of the esteemed president and cabinet’s third trip to West Azerbaijan and is the result of university officials’ tireless efforts and also provincial authorities’ assistance.

UUT tower that includes mechanical, computer and IT and industrial engineerings and management faculties with 25 thousand sqm of foundation and 15 stories is under construction on the south side of the university and is to be one of the unique projects in Urmia.
