The Department of Civil Engineering offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science (BS), Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in the major area of Civil Engineering.
On this website you can learn about our exciting undergraduate programs in Civil Engineering. You can also learn about the faculty members in various fields. Information related to our graduate programs in Civil Engineering can be found in the College of Graduate Studies.
The Department of Civil Engineering is housed, along with other departments of Faculty of Engineering and Technology. The Faculty of Engineering and Technology provides first class research and teaching facilities. The close proximity of other departments, including many of the science departments at University of Jordan, fosters a climate of collaboration and most of our faculty members are involved in interdisciplinary research.
This is a time of great opportunity for civil engineers. Civil engineers have a major role in shaping our future and the world we live in. They deal, not only with the methodical and precise aspects of their work, but also with its community and financial impact. They seek creative solutions to complex issues facing the world today: engineering sustainable cities; designing, building and renewing the world's infrastructure; meeting growing energy and water demands; and preserving and protecting the environment.
Our emphasis on discipline and engineering fundamentals, along with design and communication prepares our graduates for ultimate learning and for diverse and motivating careers in the field. Our graduates are leaders in their profession, owning or managing construction engineering firms locally and abroad and participating in policy making decisions at the local, national and regional levels. Some have pursued careers in other disciplines. Others, at the graduate level, have gone on to become leading researchers and educators at academic institutions.
