The University of Kashan in the city of Kashan, Iran, 230 km south of Tehran, was opened in 1974 as the first higher education institution in Kashan.

Starting only with 200 students taking undergraduate courses in physics and mathematics, the university now offers study in over 180 courses, in 11 faculties, including engineering, chemistry, arts and humanities.

Housed on 530 hectares of campus, the university has about 8,000 students across over 180 courses, 60 per cent of whom are female. There are about 180 full-time academic staff members. About 40 per cent of students are in postgraduate studies.
