Civil Engineering Department

Head of Department Message

On behalf of the faculty members and staff at the Department of Civil Engineering, I may welcome you all, students and visitors of our site. The Department of Civil Engineering was founded at the beginning of the academic year 2016-2017 to be a nucleus for the establishment of the Faculty of Engineering at Amman Arab University, as part of the University strategy and embodiment of its future vision.

Civil Engineering is one of the most important disciplines of  essential sciences and engineering that serve and affect the life of mankind in relation to health, environment, project management, construction, bridges, transport network, and water and sewage network.

The Department of Civil Engineering takes upon itself to strive constantly for entrepreneurship and distinction in teaching, in research and in application, so as to achieve its main goal of producing professional engineers who are able to excel at the job market and to well serve their countries and communities.

Finally I wish you all, students of our Department, success in your studies and distinction in your future endeavor and pursuits.

Acting The head of the department  

 Dr. Sami Ayyad 

About the Department

About the Bachelor of Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering at Amman Arab University was established in the beginning of the academic year 2016/2017 to award bachelor’s degree of civil engineering. This program aims to raise the competence of graduates of the specialization in line with labor market at local and international levels and to help them acquire communication and teamwork skills. The study plan includes the areas of project and construction management, roads and traffic, water and environmental engineering, using specialized software, design, modern checks, familiarity with the Jordanian building specifications and code, quantities and economic calculation, and the selection of appropriate mechanisms. The department aims to provide the engineering sector with qualified engineering competencies capable of managing and applying the modern international standards to building systems, upgrading engineering and construction work, engineering capabilities of the buildings and construction sector. In addition, the program aims at introducing, developing and enhancing modern scientific technologies and concepts in this field. The Faculty of Engineering is equipped with high technologies, laboratories and infrastructure necessary to fulfill the requirements of specialization.
