Khatam University has been admitting students at the Master’s level in the field of Architecture in four subfields and Art Research through the Master's Entrance Exam since September 2016 and holding the above courses by inviting the most prominent professors in the country in the above fields such as Dr. Amir Faraji, Dr. Simon Ayvazian (as the first director of the Department of Architecture), Dr. Darab Diba, Dr. Mohammad Javad Saghafi and Dr. Asghar Saedsamiei.


It should be noted that the above-mentioned people were prominent and experienced professors in architecture at the Faculty of Architecture of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Tehran, which is the scientific hub in the field of Architecture in Iran. The admission capacity of students in the field of Architecture in each of the four subfields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Project and Construction Management is 20 people per academic year, and the top ranks in the national university entrance exam will enjoy special tuition offers. Additionally, since 2019 and to create sabbaticals in the field of architecture and construction at higher levels, a doctorate program was established in the Architecture field in the Department of Arts and Architecture with a capacity of accepting a maximum of 7 students. The recruitment of architectural engineering students has started in this group since 1401 at the undergraduate level, and it is hoped that a positive step will be taken towards enhancing the architecture of Iran, which has a brilliant background in this field, by educating students of this field in a principled manner.
