The establishment of Shahid Shamsipour Technical and Vocational College dates back to 1964, when “Aziz Nabavi’, who is known as the father of accounting science in Iran, founded the “Institute of Accounting”, which initially operated as a private institution and its center was located in one of the northern areas of Tehran. Sometime later, the institute became known as the “Tehran Institute of Technology” and benefitted from the services of several consultants from the MIT University of the United States both in the management of its affairs and training programs.

In the year 1974, the Tehran Institute of Technology was bought by the Ministry of Education, which was considered an important development in the history of this institute and following which it continued its activity as a state center of higher education. After the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the name of the institution was changed to “Shahid Shamsipour Technical Training School” in honor of one of its martyred graduates and it was eventually as “Shahid Shamsipour Technical and Vocational College’.
