The most important tasks of each department and training group includes: compiling and updating the courses, arranging training programs and monitoring the presentation of courses, examining research projects, examining student exchanges and missions of the group members, and anticipating the needs for the groups to recruit new faculty members.

In this regard, in September 1970, the Commission for the Selection of the Board of Trustees of the University of Tehran approved the two groups of Physics Education for Earth Physics and Space Physics for the Geophysics Institute. These two groups offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in geophysical and meteorological sciences.

Considering the importance of the seismology science in Iran, in June 2017, the council of the University of Tehran approved the establishment of seismology Department. In this Department, students are admitted to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
