On behalf of all faculty and staff members of the Department of Basic Sciences at University of Petra, I, with great pleasure, welcome you to its website.
Undoubtly, there is no need to be reminded of realizing the extreme importance of sciences – especially Mathematics and Physics – in the well- being of mankind. Almost every avenue and innovative invention that led to easing human lives along history has stemmed from an idea (or ideas) rooted in a basic science.
Although our department is of small dimension in size, nevertheless, the dimensions of its objectives and services are maximal.
We strive to instill in our students the awareness of the aforementioned importance through enhancing the necessary Math. And Physics back- grounds needed during the course of study in their scientific fields of specialization.
We do so by resorting to enforce internationally comparable standards in all pillars of the education process, such as : faculty, textbooks, courses’ syllabi, exams and grades.
All of the above make us proud of what we deliver. Our faculty is highly qualified and dedicated. Textbooks adopted for our courses are internationally authored and of high usage. Courses’ syllabi cover recognized contents. Exams for our courses are reliable and filtering. Grades reflect real achievement.
In addition, two more factors contribute to our pride : Low faculty/ student ratio and faculty- student in- class (and outside) interaction.
Each member of the department shall be pleased to provide you with any (further) information.
Dr. Faris Badawi
Head of the Department
