Nowadays, the concept of Information Technology is taken synonymous with concepts like productivity, growth, knowledge-basedness, evolution and development. The University of Isfahan was one of the major prestigious scientific centers to employ the earliest realizations of this technology in the last years of the pre-Revolution Iran. A center called “The Computation Center of the University” was established which equipped the University with one of the earliest forms of computer systems known as “card punch” used as a mechanized system for inputting and processing some educational operations . This center was equipped with an IBM Mainframe: System/370 in 1988. In 2000, following the radical development of information technology across the world and within the country, the Computation Center of the University, undertaking a new set of missions to accomplish, was renamed Communication and Information Technology Center. The fiber optic network of University of Isfahan, which was one of the first modern and large-scale networks in the universities across the country, was established and launched in 2002. In the recent years, following the rapid development of the Internet, networks and applications, the center has expanded the scope, variety and quality of its services for the users across the University. Following is a summary of the center’s structure and responsibilities:
