School of Engineering :: The University of Jordan ::

  School of Engineering - Department of Electrical Engineering


Department Overview


The Electrical Engineering Department was founded in 1977 as one of the School of Engineering's eight academic divisions. The department has maintained a high standard of academic performance ever since, making an effort to accomplish a number of goals. Among them are:

• Delivering a foundational education in the many areas of electrical engineering while keeping a sensible ratio of theory to practice.
• Graduate qualified electrical engineers by placing a strong emphasis on appropriate training and high-quality education.

• Participating in ongoing research initiatives to assist Jordan's development goals.
• Contributing positively to the advancement of the electrical engineering profession by organizing specialized seminars, technical conferences, continuous education programs, joint research projects, and consulting services to meet the needs and requirements of practicing engineers.

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


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 2026. 


The department provides two programs that lead to B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering. The B.S. program has been carefully designed to provide students with a broad and deep understanding of the fundamentals of Electrical Engineering, allowing for further specialization in the fifth year. During the final year, students are given the option of studying Electronics, Communications, or 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.

The M.S. program in Power was suspended by the University administration about 28 years ago due to a low number of graduates. However, in 2017, the department made a recommendation to reinstate the program in response to growing international interest in the subject of electrical power systems and the addition of new faculty members in the field.


Graduates of the programs listed above have been well received and recognized for receiving a high-quality engineering education, and they have gone on to hold leadership positions in their electrical engineering profession.

Department Facilities:

I.                  Department Laboratories: 

A sound electrical engineering education necessitates the verification of theoretical concepts through practical testing and measurements. As a result, there are several laboratory facilities with adequate equipment and space to meet these requirements. While these laboratories are primarily intended for undergraduate instruction, they also include advanced facilities to support graduate research projects, particularly in communications, digital signal processing, microwave measurements, machines, and power systems.

Here is a list of available laboratories:


  1. Electrical Circuits Lab: Used for basic study of circuits and network characteristics. 

  2. Electronics Lab: Used for studying basic electronic circuits and applications. 
  3. Microcontroller Applications Lab: Provides hands-on experience with microcontrollers, essential for understanding embedded systems and real-world applications. Students learn to program, interface, and troubleshoot microcontrollers, gaining practical skills that bridge theory and practice.
  4. Communications Lab: Used to study the various aspects of analog and digital communication theory and systems including filters, modulation techniques, and data transmission. 
  5. Instrumentation and Control Lab: Used for studying the basic concepts of control theory including open and closed loop systems (linear and nonlinear) and analog computations. 
  6. Electrical Machines Lab: Used for studying DC and AC machines and transformers. 
  7. Electrical Power Lab: Focuses on power systems, energy conversion, and real-world applications. Students gain essential skills in power electronics, renewable energy, and smart grids.
  8. Advanced Electronics Lab: Provides contemporary applications in Electronics Engineering.
  9. Advanced Communications Lab: Provides contemporary applications in Communications Engineering.
  10. Advanced Electrical Power Lab: Provides contemporary applications in Electrical Power Engineering.

II.               Other Facilities 

The Electrical Engineering Department also has a variety of general and specific facilities that can be used in conjunction with specific courses or research. In particular, computing facilities are available in the form of university-wide and college-wide networks, as well as computer laboratories outfitted with cutting-edge PC technology. Access to the internet is also available across the university.
