The University of Jordan

The University of Jordan (UJ), which was founded in 1962, has grown to become Jordan’s largest and leading university excelling in pedagogy, research, and innovation and advancing in global standing, it has offered a wide choice of academic programs for students who can choose from more than 250 Programs from 24 schools in various disciplines. UJ offers 94 bachelors in different programs in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Rehabilitation Science, Science, Agriculture, Engineering, Information Technology, Art, Business Administration, Sharia’a, Educational Sciences, law, Physical Education, Arts and Design, International Studies, Foreign Languages, Archaeology and Tourism. At graduate level, UJ provides 38 doctoral Programs, which represent more than 50% of doctoral programs in Jordan, and 111 master programs, which represent about 25% of master programs in Jordan, 16 higher specialization programs in medicine and one in dentistry, and 3 diploma programs. Since its foundation, the number of UJ graduates have exceeded 200,000 graduates around the world, and UJ’s employment reputation is 267 worldwide according to QS World Universities Ranking 2018. UJ is not only looking to reach the highest level of excellence, but it is also trying to apply the principles of total quality management and to use the latest information technologies in its programs and strategies. The University of Jordan has achieved advanced positions in various international rankings: UJ is one of the best 600 Universities worldwide, one of the best 10 Arab universities, and it has recently achieved 4 stars according to QS. In addition, UJ has gained many international accreditations for its programs, such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, engineering, rehabilitation and other disciplines. The “School of Engineering” at the University of Jordan with its new name (past Faculty of Engineering & Technology) is committed to excellence and development of innovations in engineering, applied sciences and technology. Since its foundation in 1974, the School of Engineering has followed its clear goals to bring together the fundamentals of applied sciences, the power of engineering imagination, and the high quality of teaching. Our school provides real educational opportunities by discovering new knowledge, participating in many research disciplines, and graduate smart engineers for a challenging future. The School of Engineering is the largest faculty at the University of Jordan with a number of students close to 6,000 attracted from the top high school students in Jordan guided by Specialists faculty members. These students are distributed over eight academic departments which include: Architecture Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Mechatronics Engineering. The programs include bachelor, and masters programs. Engineering college enjoys excellent reputation of graduating high calibre students who proved themselves in the academia as well as in the private and public sectors. In addition to its academic obligations, Engineering college extends its services to the community through the participation of its faculty in community councils, committees, and conferences in both public and private sectors. The college is also housing numerous industrial and research entities such as Industry Outreach Unit, KADDB Research Laboratories, Faculty For Factories program, and Industrial Partnership Council.To maintain our high level of teaching quality, the School of Engineering adapted the ABET accreditation policy for three B.Sc. engineering programs (Chemical, Electrical & Mechanical engineering) and the rest is underway. This is because we have already achieved remarkable success in education and research and we intend to maintain and build on it. The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 1978. Since then, more than 1000 mechanical engineers had graduated. The department graduates are spread inside and outside the Kingdom. Many of them finished their post graduate degrees and are appointed in well recognized research and academic positions. The department has 26 faculty members who are experts in their fields of specialization. In addition to teaching, the faculty members conduct high quality scientific research which is published in high ranking scientific journals. The department hosts six laboratories for practical applications to accompany the theoretical material of the curriculum. The undergraduate program accept about 100 students each academic year. Beside the undergraduate program the department offers Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering. The Mechanical Engineering Department witnessed a qualitative improvement in the last few years. Two master programs were established in cooperation with the European Union through the TEMPUS program, namely: Master of Science ( M.Sc.) in Renewable Energy, and Master of Science ( M.Sc.) in Environmental Engineering and Climate Change. Although the engineering programs offered at the School of Engineering are accredited by the Accreditation Council of the Ministry of Higher Education, the Department of Mechanical Engineering recently attained accreditation from Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). ABET is internationally recognized as a self-sustained system of excellence in undergraduate engineering education. This accreditation applies for the graduates of the years starting the year 2015 and through the year 2021. The mechanical engineering department is seeking to achieve the vision and objectives of our university in teaching; research and community services.
