Date of establishment: 1995
The School of Health is one of the prestigious schools in Iran with over 10 staff and 100 students actively engaged in research and teaching across a wide range of topics, covering health education and community health improvement, environmental health engineering, occupational health and safety and epidemiology. Our integrated programs of study offer exciting opportunities to work alongside research leaders and to develop the skills and knowledge required by future decision-makers.
With access to several analytical laboratories, pilot scale facilities, and supporting expertise, the school provides services, ranging from one-off activities to long-term collaborations with the industry and other research organizations.
Department of Environmental Health
This department is one of the well-disciplined academic centers in the country in educating professionals in the field of environmental health engineering at BSc and MSc levels. Three main research areas cover all environmental parameters such as air pollution, water treatment, solid and liquid waste treatment in the rural, urban areas and industrial sectors and include environmental monitoring and bio- monitoring of the pollutants, health-environmental interaction of hazardous pollutants and development of advanced techniques for environment purification.
Department of public Health
This department offers a wide range of courses and training programs to meet the needs of diverse people at BSc level. Our main goal is to develop people’s scompetence in the core areas of public health, educating them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to become effective practitioners and researchers, to engage people in the development and translation of new knowledge to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of public health services and to promote collaborations with community partners and stakeholders to increase public health and foster their regional and global participation.
Department of Occupational Health
This department offers BSc. program in occupational health engineering.. Our mission is to prepare students to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and manage workplace exposure to chemical, biological, and physical stressors and attain positions as industrial hygienists and occupational safety and health specialists. This is accomplished through a balanced mix of didactic and laboratory courses, field experiences, and directed research. Research areas include: Evaluation and control of chemicals, biological, and physical hazards in the workplaces, Ergonomics studies, evaluation and control of indoor hazardous pollutants, ionizing and electromagnetic radiation, toxicology and industrial ventilation.
Facilities and Laboratories:
There are a number of well-equipped laboratories within the school including safety and ergonomics lab, thermal conditions d ventilation system design lab. Equipments include GC/MS, GC/FID, HPLC/UV/F, CHNS/O element analyzer, and AAS. Microbiological and molecular base analysis (PCR) and varieties of sample preparation techniques are also available.
