Such students can contribute to the scientific, economic, cultural, political and social development of their motherland and the future needs of society.
At present the university caters to over 6000 students in 55 different courses at under-graduate and graduate levels. Approximately 400 teaching  staff are committed to providing an enhanced and innovative education. The original university was located in the city of Amol. In 1997 the university moved to a larger building as the number of students and courses increased. During the first academic year the educational activities were conducted in the building located at 17 Shahrivar Square . Then, with the advancement of educational activities in 1998, the classes were transferred again to Ma'arfat educational complex building, situated at 26, Talib Amoli Street , Amol.
