In reference to the approval letter passed by Council for Development of Higher Education in 1991-10-02, Hormozgan University was established during the 10-day revolution celebration of 1991. It was licensed to establish 6 educational majors at bachelor’s levels (i.e. industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, mathematical teaching, physics teaching, Persian literature teaching). After Hormozgan Technical Institute (a sub-entity of Shiraz University) was moved, the university started its official educational activities.
At the moment, the university is operating with about six thousand male and female students at different educational levels (40 bachelor’s majors, 71 master’s majors, and 32 PhD majors) are studying at the university. Now (late second educational year 2014-2015), the academic pyramid diagram of the university is composed of 72 percent bachelor students, 25 percent master students, and 3 percent PhD students.
The organizational structure approved by the university includes five departments (planning and development department, educational and post-graduate department, research and technology department, student department, cultural and social department), five colleges (technical and engineering college, basic sciences college, marine sciences and techniques college, agriculture and natural resources college), Minab Higher Education Complex and three research institutes (i.e. Hormuz Research Institute, Coastal Desserts Research Institute, Regional Hara Forests Research Institute).
All operating facilities of the university cover an area exceeding 55 thousand square meter (6000 : administrative facilities, 20.000 : dormitory spaces; 29.000 : educational, research and cultural spaces).
It should be noted that at the moment 210 faculty members are conducting educational and research affairs of Hormozgan University.
