Electrical Power Engineering Department

Overview

The Electrical Power Engineering Department offers a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Power Engineering. The department plays a vital role in providing the Jordan and the regional with qualified electrical power engineers. The department program focuses on both the theoretical and practical aspects of power engineering by addressing the fundamental concepts of engineering mathematics, physical sciences, electrical machines, power electronics, power system analysis, and high voltage engineering. The department also offers a Masters program in power engineering to cater for working professionals in electric power companies, utilities, manufacturing establishments and the energy sector in Jordan. The department is led by 15 highly qualified faculty members and attracts outstanding students from Jordan and neighboring countries. Currently there are 800 students of which approximately 5 percent are from outside Jordan.

Vision

To be distinguished locally, regionally, and globally as a leading department in education and graduating qualified students capable of competition, scientific research, and community service in the areas of electric power technology. Moreover, to provide engineering programs and services of high quality and be in line of technological development

Mission
