A Bridge Towards Knowledge
Skip Navigation Links Home : Academics : Faculty of Engineering
Interest in establishing a Faculty of Engineering at the University of Petra (UOP) sparked in late 2012, stemming from the fact that UOP always believes in continuously developing and expanding its scientific and educational frontiers. Extensive work carried out by exquisite committees and distinguished members, including the Highest Counselor of UOP, the President of UOP, Deans of already established UOP faculties, Dean of Engineering Faculty to be, as well as internal and external managers and experts, bloomed into an outstanding Faculty of Engineering that was inaugurated in 2018. The Civil Engineering Department was the first department to launch while other engineering departments of great potential and immense demand are under review for future considerations. Two batches of Civil Engineering graduates were celebrated in the academic year 2019-2020 and many more are yet to be rejoiced in the future, hopefully in all engineering disciplines. Local accreditation has been obtained and international accreditations are sought after and are on our top priority list. 
The minute that you step into the Faculty of Engineering, you feel that the building is different, in a very nice way. It is an architecturally modern - aesthetically eye catching – comfortable new building. The laboratories are enormous and equipped with state-of-the-art apparatus. Classrooms and lecture halls are neatly furnished and professionally geared for top quality teaching. Contemporary computer labs are enriched with licensed engineering softwares and programs. The central heating/cooling system running year long keeps the students and staff focused and productive. Spacious faculty offices, clean facilities, seminar rooms, meeting rooms, and many more infrastructural advantages, all render the building as the marvelous Faculty of Engineering at the University of Petra.
In terms of personnel, Faculty members are highly qualified - friendly people. They are finely selected as graduates of reputable academic institutions who are dedicated to teaching and research. Our Laboratory supervisors are well trained engineers equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to cover the technical aspect of theoretical courses. Our staff always go the extra mile to make sure that our students are being provided with an extraordinary educational experience.
Combing exceptional infrastructure, rigorous curricula, and respectful - spirit lifting- talented professionals results in a definition for the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Petra.
We hope that you will pay our Engineering Faculty a visit and we will be more than happy to welcome and help you.
