Overview

 

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.
