This study can help authorities of educational systems and educational planners to provide the basis of increasing growth and development of the holly system of Islamic Republic of Iran. University of Applied science and Technology is one of the academic units where plays an important role to grow up human resources as one of the main elements of intellectual and organizational capital. Thus, considering the importance of these two components and since there has not been any research in this respect, performing this kind of research seemed to be necessary. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between intellectual capital and organizational performance in the University of Applied science and Technology. The method used in this study was a correlation type research. Population of the research consisted of all human resources employed in University of Applied science and Technology staff, including official staff of managers (71 individuals) and non- managers (307 individuals). Based on Cochran formula, 196 individuals were selected. In order to collect data, organizational performance questionnaire that was designed by Hersey and Goldsmith (2001) with reliability coefficient 86% and also intellectual capital questionnaire by Bontis (1998) with reliability coefficient 0.84 were applied. Summarizing and categorizing data, descriptive statistics and analyzing data the research showed that there was a positive correlation between communication capital and organizational performance (r= 0.504, p< 0.05), human resources and organizational performance(r= 0.492, p< 0.05), structural capital and organizational performance (r= 0.521, p< 0.05) and intellectual capital and organizational performance (r= 0.530, p< 0.05) of University of Applied science and Technology.
