About Us

Our story

Department of Philosophy of Science has been established in Sharif University of Technology since 1995 as the first academic institution in this field of study in Iran. The study of philosophical issues arising from scientific theories , methodology of scientific inquiries, the relation and perhaps cooperation between science and religion, and the moral concerns regarding the development of science and technology are the main focus of this department. In addition to that our students who are mainly graduated from engineering and science departments are free to pursue their own philosophical concerns during their stay in our department.
