Abadan Institute Of Technology Founded

By: Mir M.Hosseini

Abadan Institute Of Technology (AIOT) was the third of it's kind in the world, founded for education and training of technical staff required to operate and support Iranian Oil fields and refineries. It remains as one of few good heritages of the British who at the time owned %51 of the Iranian oil industry until nationalization of oil in 1952 under Dr. Mosaddegh. In 1956, it was renamed as the Abadan technical university adding fields like drilling and mining engineering, and registration became subject to passing a nationwide university entrance examination called concourd (meaning acceptance in French). The university was renamed after Javad Tondgooyan, the minister of oil who became martyr during the Iran–Iraq War.
