Mechanical EngineeringMechanical Engineering4

The Bachelor of Science (B.SC) degree program in Mechanical Engineering (ME) department was established in 1978. Since then, more than 2500 mechanical engineers had graduated. The ME department graduates, both BSc and MSc, are employed inside Jordan and abroad, mostly in the Gulf States and to a less extent in Europe and North America. Many of them finished their post graduate studies and were appointed in well recognized research and academic institutions worldwide. The department has 21 faculty members who are experts in their fields of specialization. In addition to teaching, faculty members conduct high quality scientific research which is published in high ranking scientific journals.  The department hosts eight laboratories for providing practical hands on experience to accompany the theoretical material of the curriculum. The undergraduate program accepts about 100 students each academic year. The BSc program vision, mission, and educational objectives are aligned with those of the University and the School of Engineering which target excellence in teaching, research, and community service. ​

 


Beside the undergraduate program, the department offers Master of Science (MSc) in Mechanical Engineering. Most recently, two master programs were established in cooperation with the European Union through the TEMPUS program, namely:

1. Master of Science (M.SC) in Renewable Energy

2. Master of Science (M.SC) in Environmental Engineering and Climate Change

Although all engineering programs offered at the School of Engineering are accredited by the Jordanian Accreditation Council of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the ME program has been accreditation in 2015 by  the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), USA. ABET is internationally recognized as an evidence-based system of accreditation that promotes continuous improvement in engineering education.  The duration of ABET accredited is six years and thus, accredited programs apply for reaccreditation every six years. A virtual ABET review of our ME B.SC program took place on the period of November 17-19 , 2021 and the initial response was positive. Thus, our B.SC program ABET accreditation was extended 6 more years and a Formal decision will be issued by ABET organization next July, 2022.

​​Introduction

​​As one of the eight academic departments of the School of Engineering, The Electrical Engineering Department was established in 1977. Since that time and through all subsequent years, the department has held to a high level of academic performance trying to achieve several aims with efforts. These include: 

• Providing basic electrical engineering education in the various fields of this discipline, and maintaining a reasonable balance between theory and practice. 
• Graduate competent electrical engineers through emphasizing quality education and properly oriented training. 
• Engagement in active research programs in support of Jordan’s development plans. 
• Positively contribute to the advancement of the electrical engineering profession, in order to meet the needs and requirements of the practicing engineers through the organization of specialized seminars, technical conferences, continuous education programs, joint research programs, and consulting services. 

The Electrical Engineering B.Sc. program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of (ABET).


 

EAC-RGB-B-S.jpg

ABET accreditation is ISO 9001:2008 certified, making this accreditation one of the few worldwide accrediting agencies to receive this distinction. This accreditation applies for the graduates of the years starting from the year 2014 and through the year 2022. 


The department offers two programs leading to the B.S and M.S degrees in electrical engineering. The B.S. program has been carefully structured to give the student enough breadth and depth in the basic fields of electrical engineering, allowing further specialization during the fifth year level. During this last year level, the student is offered a choice of options in Electronics, Communications and Power Systems and Control. The M.S. program in Communications, on the other hand, was started in the fall semester of 1982, in response to national and regional needs and as a consequence of the maturity of the B.S. program. The current program offers an M.S. degree in the field of Communications. 
Graduates of both programs have been well received and acknowledged to have received good quality engineering education, and have assumed leading positions in their electrical engineering profession.
