Welcom Message from Head

Welcome to the Center of Excellence in Design, Robotics, and Automation (CEDRA)'s homepage. CEDRA is the premier applied research, education and technology center in IRAN. It was established in September, 2001 to promote educational and research activities in the fields of Design, Robotics, and Automation. The Ministry of Sciences, Research, and Technology and the Sharif University of Technology are the prime sponsors of CEDRA. CEDRA bridges the gap between national industries and the Sharif University of Technology with a unique ability to harness the intellectual energy of academia to impact Iranian manufacturing. It was established in response to the rapidly growing interest of Iranian industries in robotics and automation in recent years. Sharif University of Technology was chosen to host the center because it has the most active robotics teaching and research activities in Iran dating back to September of 1988.
