On behalf of the faculty members and administrative staff at the School of Engineering, I am pleased to welcome and thank you for visiting the website of our School. I hope you will find it a helpful site and you can find all the information you are looking for. 

The School of Engineering was established in 1974 and includes eight departments: Civil, Architecture, Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, Industrial, Computer, and Mechatronics Engineering at the undergraduate level. In addition to fourteen master’s programs and a vocational diploma program, we are preparing to launch a joint Ph.D. program in Mechanical Engineering with Hamburg University of Technology in Germany. The School of Engineering achieved an advanced global ranking in the QS World University Rankings by Subject in 2024, where it is ranked 253 in the field of Engineering and Technology, advancing from its 2023 ranking. The School was also ranked in four engineering subjects (Civil, Electrical, Computer, and Mechanical Engineering), three of which were ranked first in Jordan. These programs rely on modern and dynamically evolving teaching study plans that achieve the educational objectives, ensuring that graduates acquire high-level skills and competences that meet the needs of the job market and reflect the mission of the school aligned with that of the University of Jordan in serving and developing the local community, and in line with the highest local and international standards. All the following programs: Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, Industrial, Computer, and Mechatronics Engineering have received international ABET accreditation, while the Architecture department will apply for NAAB international accreditation. 

The School of Engineering pays special attention to the practical side and training to equip students with the soft and technical skills related to the engineering profession in general and their specialization in particular. Therefore, the school’s laboratories are equipped with basic and advanced equipment that supports the students’ theoretical knowledge and highlights the practical aspects that foster students’ communication skills and the ability to work in a team. To ensure the enhancement of its students’ learning outcomes, the School of Engineering has hosted an office of the international IAESTE organization aimed at training students at a global level. 

The faculty includes many laboratories equipped with the latest technologies and modern equipment that assist students and researchers in conducting research and practical studies. In addition to engineering workshops, the school strives to serve the community and the engineering profession by providing consultations to the private and public sectors, offering specialized courses and workshops, as well as organizing conferences and seminars, and participating in scientific forums locally and internationally. 

If you are seeking excellence and looking forward to continuing your university engineering education in a creative academic environment, the School of Engineering at the University of Jordan will be your best choice.
