Welcome to the first University, and the first Department of Architecture Engineering in Jordan.
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our department, which is one of the leading architectural departments in the region, in which the Royal Decree for the establishment of the Department in the Faculty of Engineering and Technology which was issued on 29th December 1974, being the ninth faculty in the university. Teaching at the Architecture Department started in the academic year 1975/1976.
The study plan of the B.Sc. in architecture is composed of 178 credit hours requiring five years of study for completion the degree. Practical training in the summer, not less than 8 weeks, is also required. The first group to graduate in 1980 numbered 13 students. The number of graduates increased yearly to reach 111 by the end of the academic year 2019- 2020.
Our goal is to educate future architects, and designers of the built environment, how to be innovative and imaginative, but respectful of the history and cultures.
Our department seeks to inspire you with a lifelong interest in your chosen field that will sustain you throughout your studies and career.
Emphasis in the curriculum is given to Architectural Design, which is the major course in the study of architecture. Study of the local environment, users' behavior, and associated technical as well as humanity subjects are also included. The final graduation projects of students are chosen from actual local schemes mainly from the National Development Plan of Jordan.
The department awards the degrees of B.Sc. and M.Sc.
Our department is quite unique. We have a rich history, yet we are always looking towards the future. We are a tight-knit community, yet we have regional, national, and global reach. Our faculty, staff and students are diverse, and we are working towards making architectural education and profession inclusive and equitable.
I leave you with an open invitation to learn about our program, to contact us with your questions, and more than welcomed to drop by for a visit. Through our future students, we hope to continue our well established tradition in graduating the bright architects of the future.
The industrial engineering department is one of the leading
departments that have a strong ethos of multidisciplinary collaborations and
are successful in developing more productive strategies and transferring
technologies from a sector to another. Since it was established in 1986, it has
graduated more than 3100 well-qualified industrial engineers. As a result of
its continuous achievements, the industrial engineering BSc program has
received ABET accreditation. In addition to the BSc program, the IE department
has developed three different but synergizing master programs; namely,
Engineering Management, Maintenance Engineering and Quality Management, and
Design and Manufacturing. Such programs are developed to effectively prepare
students for taking-up management responsibilities and leading roles in
manufacturing and service industries.
What is Industrial Engineering?
Industrial engineering is a broad professional discipline
concerned with designing, implementing and controlling efficient and effective
production systems that produce both services and/or physical products.
It is concerned with combining and integrating all resources to achieve
the production objectives with the best way of resources utilization. Basic
production resources include: manpower, machines and systems, materials and
supplies, money and capitals, and management and information.
In addition to the undergraduate program, the following three
master programs are offerd: (1) M. Sc. in Industrial engineering/Engineering
Management, (2) M. Sc. in Industrial engineering/Design and
Manufacturing, and (3) M. Sc. in Maintenance Engineering and Quality
Management. Such programs are developed to effectively prepare students for
taking-up management responsibilities and leading roles in manufacturing and

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).
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.
