Welcome to Amirkabir University of Technology IEEE Student Branch Website 

Amirkabir University of Technology IEEE Student Branch was approved by the IEEE Headquarters in 1980.  Since then, we have tried to introduce the IEEE and its goals  to students in our  university, as well  as other universities in the country.
Our main focus is on scientific activities and we are organizing successful workshops, weekly  seminars and  symposiums.

Automatic Code Generation for Nonlinear Model Predictive Control by Dr Behzad Samadi

Abstract: This seminar begins with a quick and painless introduction to basic concepts of optimal control and model predictive control (MPC). We will derive Pontryagin’s maximum principle. The only prerequisite is familiarity with Lagrange multipliers. To solve optimality conditions in real time, the continuation GMRES method for nonlinear MPC will be introduced. This method has been implemented in a Maple application by Cybernet, Japan, available in the Application Center. We will review this worksheet, which includes automatic code generation for NMPC controllers. The example problem in this worksheet is to control the position and orientation of a hovercraft. You can easily change the definition of the system in the worksheet and generate a MPC controller for your application.

Biography: Behzad Samadi has received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and Amirkabir University of Technology, respectively. He then studied a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Concordia University in Montreal. He has worked as a Research Engineer at the R&D Centre of Irankhodro Car Manufacturing (, Assistant Professor at Amirkabir University of Technology from 2008 to 2011 and a Research Associate at Concordia University. He is now a Senior Research Engineer at Maplesoft. His main areas of research are modeling and control of automotive systems, convex optimization, piecewise polynomial systems, 3D simulation of mechatronic systems, uncertainty analysis and model based fault detection and isolation.


Security and Distributed Estimation of Cyber-physical System by Dr Zamani

Abstract: The inclusion of communication and computation capabilities into physical systems has made them more efficient and reliable. These physical plants are referred to as cyber-physical systems and pose new challenges to both engineers and scientists. In this talk, I will address two important issues involved with cyber-physical systems, namely, security and distributed estimation. In the first part of the talk, the security of cyber-physical systems is studied from system theory perspective. It is shown how zeros of cyber-physical systems can be used to construct concealable attacks. Then in the second part, an optimal distributed filter for state estimation in a network environment is illustrated.

Bio: Mohsen did his undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering at the Shiraz University of Technology. He then did his master studies again in Electrical Engineering at the National University of Singapore in 2009.  He did his PhD under supervision of Prof. Brian. D. O. Anderson at Research School of Engineering in the Australian National University in 2014. He is currently a post- doctoral researcher at the Newcastle University, Australia. His research interests include security, control and estimation for cyber-physical systems and econometric modeling.

IEEE Student Branches gathering


IEEEXtreme 24-Hour Programming Competition

IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members—advised and proctored by an IEEE member, and often supported by an IEEE Student Branch—compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.

IEEEXtreme 9.0 will be held 24 October 2015 00:00:00 UTC.

Registration will be open through 12 October 2015.

 IEEEXtreme 8.0: IEEE’s Flagship Programming Competition


Undergraduate and graduate computer programming students are gearing up to compete for the rights to call themselves the “world’s best programmers” – and a free trip to one of hundreds of IEEE technical worldwide conferences — during the upcoming programming competition, IEEEXtreme 8.0. The eighth annual worldwide college programming competition involves teams of IEEE student members working collaboratively to solve a series of challenging programming problems.

IEEE, the world’s leading technical professional association for the advancement of technology, conducts the
computer programming competition. IEEE student branches will host the competition on their local campuses.


The 24-hour competition will begin simultaneously at college campuses around the world at 00:00:00 UTC

18 October, 2014. The registration deadline is 3 October, 2014. More information about the IEEEXtreme 8.0,
including an online registration form, is available at





 17th Iranian Student Conference on Electrical Engineering


We are pleased to inform you that the 17th ISCEE will be held December 18-20, 2014 at Sharif University of Technology,International Campus,Kish Island. The conference call for paper is shown below, and is accessible at the conference website:
We, as the AUT IEEE Student Branch board director should say that we are one of the academic sponsors of this event, and we have sent some information about this event to the AUT IEEE members by mail. Please check your mails to reach those information.

Looking forward to seeing you all in the beautiful island, Kish.




New AUT Honors in ICEE 2014


In the last International Congress of Electrical Engineering (ICEE 2014), held in Shahid Beheshti University, Iran, some honors were gained by the students and the professors of Amirkabir University of Technology that we are here to inform you about them.


Dr. Abdipour from the Electrical Engineering Department won the “Prof. Hakkak” award of IEEE Iran Section. Also Dr. Hashemi Golpayegani from the Biomedical Engineering Department won “Research” award of IEEE Iran Section.


Other prominent achievements of AUT were:

MSc. Sajjad Mohamadi won the “Best MSc Thesis” award of IEEE Iran Section for his Thesis which was written under the supervision of doctoral advisor Dr. Mirsalim.

BSc. Ashkan Yousefi won “Best BSc Thesis” award for his Thesis which was written under the supervision of doctoral advisor Dr. Khorsandi.


We are glad to offer our congratulations to them for their intriguing achievements among national IEEE contestants.



We hope that we will be the chosen branch of IEEE Iran Section next year with your support.
