Renewable Energy Engineering

Head of Department Message

I am pleased to welcome you to the department of renewable energy at Amman Arab University, which was launched in the academic year 2020/2021, as a necessary field locally, nationally, and internationally to meet the requirement of energy. 

Renewable energy is the type of energy that is not depleting, such as solar, wind, geothermal, biofuel, etc...

Renewable energy engineers shape our future. They are instrumental in finding new solutions that progress technology and expand humankind’s horizons. 

Renewable energy engineers are at the helm of innovation in many fields so as, designing renewable energy systems, energy control, energy conversion cycle, production, distribution, and usage processes, and environmental technology.

The study plan for the B.Sc. in energy engineering is composed of 160 credit hours to grant a bachelor's degree that includes all the fields of knowledge accredited to the major of renewable energy.
The Department of Renewable Energy Engineering strives for entrepreneurship and distinction in teaching, research, and application to meet its primary goal of producing professional engineers who can succeed in the job market and serve their countries and communities well.

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

Dr. Muhammad Ismail

Acting Head of Renewable Energy Engineering Department

 

About the Department

About the Bachelor of Renewable Energy Engineering

Jordan has one of the highest levels of reliance on foreign energy sources in the world, with 96% of the country's energy needs met by imported oil and natural gas from neighboring Middle Eastern countries. Jordan's GDP is greatly affected by its reliance on foreign oil imports. This motivated the country to invest in renewable energy to satisfy the country's energy needs.
Renewable energy is energy produced from non-depletable sources like the sun, wind, ocean, geothermal, etc... Renewable energy can be used for electricity generation, space and water heating and cooling, transportation, etc ...
As a result, Amman Arab University established this one-of-a-kind Department to meet the urgent need for graduates who are skilled in renewable energy engineering. The type of education provided by this Department distinguishes it from other departments in Jordan and the region.
The energy engineering study program provides students with the opportunity to gain comprehensive skills for jobs that require expertise in energy technology throughout all sectors of society.
Whereas renewable energy is a broad field, graduate students can work in both the public and private sectors as supervising engineers, design managers, executive or supervising engineers, or specialized researchers in the following positions:

  • Renewable energy and fossil fuel power plants.
  • Renewable energy companies.
  • Ministries and municipalities.
  • Electricity distribution firms.
  • Energy project management companies.
  • Central labs for renewable energy companies.
  • Marketing and sales.

Finally, the department is equipped with the modern laboratories required to prepare the student in a distinguished manner so that he can acquire the necessary field experiences.
 

Vision and Mission of the Department

Vision:

Entrepreneurship and distinction in renewable energy engineering in teaching, research and application locally and regionally.

Mission:

Preparing and employing staff of engineers who are able to compete in the labor market with high professionalism, supported by the skills, knowledge and ethics of the profession in achieving comprehensive and sustainable development.

   

Mission, Objectives, and Educational Outcomes of Major

Renewable Energy Engineering Major Bachelor’s Program

Program Mission:

Providing distinguished academic programs in the field of renewable energy engineering supported by the knowledge, skills and ethics of the profession through qualified cadres capable of keeping pace with local and international standards in accordance with the e-learning integration standards.

Educational Program Objectives:

  1. Our graduates will be qualified in renewable energy engineering who meet Jordan Energy Strategy 2020 – 2030 and energy regulatory framework updates, and regional industry requirements in terms of communication skills, ability to work well in teams, and use modern engineering tools.
  2. Engineers who practice design skills, analysis, formulate problem statements, and to estimate and perform engineering problem solutions.
  3. Engineers who enroll in progress professional development, updating and adapting their knowledge, and gaining new knowledge and skills to meet the requirements of the change in technology requirements and pursue new profession opportunities.
  4. Engineers who demonstrate the commitment and understand the responsibilities to professional and ethical standards of engineering.


Educational Program Outcomes:
The expected outcomes of this program are preparing graduates competent in:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7.  An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
