About Fasa University
Relying on God and with the support of the honorable city authorities and charitable people, Fasa University was founded in 2006 and due to the proper geographical location of the city, enjoying educational and cultural amenities, and its proper distance from the provincial capital (located 150 km from Shiraz) compared to other cities in the province, it is the first university of choice for higher education applicants after Shiraz University and Shiraz Industrial Universities in the province. These have made Fasa University a special case among the emerging universities of the province and the country, which is hoped to help with knowledge-based employment and occupation and training specialist forces.
