Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering; the first department in the newly established Faculty of Engineering at the University of Petra, Amman, Jordan. It is a pleasure of mine to guide you through this brief introduction to our department, its objectives and future plans.
I joined the department at the beginning of the academic year (2018-2019) to serve as a structural engineering faculty member, and thus had the chance to witness, along with my colleagues, the growth of this marvelous department in terms of faculty, staff (administrative and lab. supervisors), students, and facilities. The faculty members are highly qualified academic individuals, finely selected as graduates of reputable academic institutions who are dedicated to teaching and research in various fields of civil engineering. Our Laboratory supervisors are well trained engineers equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to cover the technical aspect of theoretical courses. Our laboratories include state of the art equipment and computer technology. Our lecture halls are well equipped with modern class presentation tools and our faculty is furnished with a central heating/air conditioning system that provides a comfortable teaching and learning environment throughout the year.
     Civil Engineering is a broad and versatile engineering discipline that stems from various fields of science and technology (including math, physics, and computer science) and blossoms to provide safe, economic, and sustainable designs with guaranteed constructability and long term maintenance of the built environment that surrounds us. It is therefore our mission at the Civil Engineering Department to provide a distinguished academic and research environment that enables the transformation of our students into successful engineers capable of making significant contributions to the development of civil engineering structures and infrastructure in Jordan and the neighboring countries.
The department offers a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum that has been approved by Jordan’s Higher Education Accreditation Commission and is in the process of meeting the requirements of internationally recognized accreditation bodies. The program covers a wide spectrum of civil engineering courses that equip the students with the proper knowledge, morality, and skills to face real life challenges with momentum, confidence and optimism.
To all of our current students and those to be, the best of luck.
