About us


On behalf of the academic and administrative staff in the Faculty of Engineering at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University (AHU), I would like to welcome all visitors of the website of the Faculty of Engineering.

The Faculty of Engineering at AHU established in 2003 in the city of Ma’an under the name "Faculty of Mining and Environmental Engineering" as the first Engineering faculty in Jordan in this field, which was a major contributor for Jordan to enter the era of engineering renaissance, and has had a primary role in contributing to the graduation and qualification of effective and qualified Jordanian engineers in the local and global labor market.

The Faculty comprise eight academic departments: Mining & Minerals Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Communications Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. These departments offer ten undergraduate (B.Sc.) programs as well as three Master programs: Master of Computer Engineering and Networks (affiliated to the Department of Computer Engineering), Master of Renewable Engineering (affiliated to the Department of Mechanical Engineering), and Master of Health, Safety and Environmental Engineering (affiliated to the Department of Environmental Engineering).

It is worth mentioning that all B.Sc. programs offered in the Faculty of Engineering in the aforementioned specializations have obtained the Jordanian academic accreditation from the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission for Higher Education Institutions (HEAC). Currently, the Faculty is working on obtaining the Quality Assurance Standards for Engineering Program as well as  the international accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) in all its B.Sc. programs.

Moreover, the Faculty is seeking to attract outstanding Jordanian faculty members, and it attracts – on a yearly basis - many distinguished graduates to work as teaching assistants in preparation for perusal of graduate studies in international universities. The Faculty has many labs equipped with the latest technology and modern equipment that help students and researchers in conducting their experimental work, research and studies.

The Faculty is seeking diligently to serve the community and the engineering profession through the provision of consultancy to the private and public sectors, organizing courses, specialized workshops, conferences and symposia, and participation in scientific meetings held locally and abroad.

Thank you for your visit to our website. I hope you find it enlightening, and, as always, we welcome your comments or questions.
