The Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at TMU has provided master and doctorate degrees in major engineering and electrical engineering fields for nearly three decades. These programs include: electronics, computers, control, power, telecommunications, medical engineering, and new branches in interdisciplinary fields such as nano-electronics, information technology, and information and communication technology. The Faculty has signed numerous research collaborations with various industries such as electricity, telecommunications and computers, which has created the groundwork for increasing students' research capabilities in the process of carrying out projects. In this regard, this faculty hosts the National Center for the Study of Power Planning, the Center for Innovation of Mobile Communications Systems and the Spam Research Center.
The incessant scientific and research efforts of faculty members have attracted financial support for research projects from various industries and related organizations. Several research and funding facilities have been donated for ongoing projects and construction of advanced laboratories. To date, a total of 26 laboratories have been set up and are operational in various sub-disciplines, some of which are matchless in the whole country.

bullet History

Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Tarbiat Modares University, started its scientific activities in 1983 as an affiliation of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology with 6 departments of Electronics, Control, Power, Telecommunication, Medical Engineering and Computer, and in July 2009 it began its activities as an independent faculty. The teaching staff consist of 39 full-time faculty members, 11 of whom are professors, 8 are associate professors and 20 are assistant professors. More than 26 laboratories are active in the faculty to create a suitable ground for educational, research and technology development. Faculty members and students publish more than 60 articles in ISI and refereed journals each year and they have presented more than 260 articles at internal and external conferences so far.
Since 1999, the faculty of electrical and computer engineering has been publishing a journal entitled ?Barghe Modares?, which was successfully promoted to a peer-reviewed journal in 2004 and is now published quarterly. The faculty has close collaborations with major industries of the country, one of the most important of these projects is called ?flagship?.
The deans of the faculty in a chronological order have been: Dr. Ali Yazdian Varjani, Dr. Mohsen Parsa Moghadam, Dr. Abdolreza Nabavi, and Dr. Mohammad Hassan Ghasemian Yazdi. Presently Dr. Hamid Reza Momeni is the dean of Electrical Engineering & Computer Faculty. One of the important achievements of the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering in recent years concerns the integration of modern management issues in its system. This faculty has the honor to introduce itself as the first educational institution of the country and act as a Management Model for other faculties by designing and implementing an outstanding model and participating in the National Award for Productivity and Organizational Excellence and obtaining the Certificate of Commitment to Excellence in 2007.
