ACCOMPLISHED PERSONS OF IRANIAN DESCENT IN THE USA

I compiled this file because I kept hearing about all these highly accomplished people in the US and elsewhere who originally came from Iran. I find this interesting specially in a day and age where ethnicity becomes all important in negative circumstances but in positive circumstances it's viewed as unimportant! Anyway, the US was built by emigrants and the ones who came from Iran have had a very positive impact on the society. 

According to Census 2000, 50.9 percent of Iranian immigrants have attained a bachelor's degree or higher, compared to 28.0 percent national average. According to the latest census data available, more than one in four Iranian-Americans holds a master's or doctoral degree, the highest rate among 67 ethnic groups studied.. (more stats here)

Iranians in America: 

By 1977, Iran had more students abroad than any other country in the world at 227,497. By 1979 in the US alone, there were 51,310 college students, ranking first amongst foreign nationalities. Today, of the persons of Iranian descent in in America] 46% have a bachelors degree or higher, which ranks the group not only higher than any other recently-arrived immigrant group, but also higher than natives in terms of educational achievement.

This high academic achievement has undoubtedly contributed to the high occupational and financial accomplishment of Iranians as well. 43% of Iranians are in professional and managerial positions, 35% in technical and administrative, 10% are in various services and the balance are spread over farming, craft and laborers. Median family income is $55,501 (substantially above the national average of $35,492).

June 20 2003 article: In terms of disposable income, the average Iranian today is 50 percent poorer than in 1977. An International Monetary Fund report on brain-drain puts it at No. 1 among 91 developing nations. Each year up to 180,000 highly educated Iranians emigrate, mostly to North America; there are more Iranian doctors in Canada than in Iran. Youth unemployment hovers around 30 percent.


By Afshin Molavi | NEWSWEEK
In 2003, administrators at Stanford University's Electrical Engineering Department were startled when a group of foreign students aced the notoriously difficult Ph.D. entrance exam, getting some of the highest scores ever. That the whiz kids weren't American wasn't odd; students from Asia and elsewhere excel in U.S. programs. The surprising thing, say Stanford administrators, is that the majority came from one country and one school: Sharif University of Science and Technology in Iran.
Stanford has become a favorite destination of Sharif grads. Bruce A. Wooley, a former chair of the Electrical Engineering Department, has said that's because Sharif now has one of the best undergraduate electrical-engineering programs in the world.


An Iranian medical doctor from Mashhad Medical University received the World’s Greatest Woman Inventor Award at the Geneva International Festival for Inventions last week.

Dr. Zahra Alizadeh, who is a Cardiologist and a heart radiology specialist has also received the Gold medal as well as the Special award at the 41st Geneva Festival in addition to her award as the world’s best woman inventor.

Dr. Alizadeh has invented a device to determine the level of occlusion of coronary arteries using a special software and device. This device also makes it possible to determine if the patient needs to go through angioplasty or not, since angioplasty is an invasive procedure.

According to the news source, Dr Alizadeh’s invention was chosen to receive the Gold Award among more than 2,000 inventions from the 45 participating countries.


"The Iranian-American community is composed of approximately one million individuals.  According to the 1990 census, 56% of Iranian-Americans hold  bachelor degrees or above and more than 26% hold graduate degrees, making them the highest educated minority group in the U.S.  Iranian-Americans are the founders of some 280 major national firms, and the CEO's of more than 400 national companies, many of them among the Fortune 1,000 companies. The total contribution of our community to the U.S. economy is estimated at more than $400 billion."

Subject: Y - Engineering at Stanford declared the Sharif...University of 

Iran the best... Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2003 03:19:38 EDT

In this year's Stanford University-Department of Electrical Engineering Qualifying Exam for the entrance to the Doctoral PhD program, which is by 
all accounts the toughest PhD qualifying exam on the campus...and for that  matter the most renowned one, an unprecedented 15 Iranian nationals passed
the exam and have been admitted to the EE Doctoral program.  This was the  largest ethnic group ever admitted to this program. Moreover, a majority of 
this group were from Sharif University of Technology.  In fact 1st, 2nd, and 3rd highest ranking admitters were all from Sharif.  For the first time 
in the history of the Department, a foreign University had more admittance to the Doctoral program than any other American college, specifically
Stanford itself, MIT, Caltech, and others. In a recent speech, the Chairman of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford declared the Sharif 
echnical University of Iran the best undergraduate program in the world based on the curriculum of studies and the quality of the graduating
students.

Congratulations to all SHARIFI'S!!!!
