A Bridge Towards Knowledge
ASIIN Accreditation:
ASIIN is a recognized German and European accreditation agency in Engineering, Informatics Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The agency view quality of study programmers as a result of a successfully operating qualification process, the interaction between its elements and finally the achievement of its objective, which is attaining the intended learning outcomes for the students.
The content-related specification of the quality of a study program is defined within the objectives formulated by the higher education institution itself. In addition, there are external requirements made by the political, legal and socio-economical environment, within which the degree program is designed and realized.
The quality of a study program is also demonstrated by the level of success that graduates achieve in their profession. It depends on the commitment of all stakeholders within and outside of the higher education institution. We therefore see it as crucial that relevant stakeholders at the institution are involved in the planning, steering, and implementation of this process. The ASIIN program accreditation procedure reviews the logic and effectiveness of the qualification process within a study programme. Central to the overall assessment is the effective attainment of the objectives set by the institution itself.
Why ASIIN Accreditation is Important for students?
  • Accreditation gives colleges and universities a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate and improve the quality of their programs.
  • Accreditation helps students and their parents choose quality college programs and certainly help school attract excellent students to the program.
  • Accreditation enables employers to recruit graduates they know are well prepared.
  • Accreditation helps students pursue their higher studies as it indicates that study plan, courses and learning outcomes conform to global standards.
ASIIN Accreditation Certificate
Diploma Supplement
The Diploma Supplement (DS) is produced by University of Petra upon ASIIN accreditation following the model developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and UNESCO/CEPES. It is a document issued to all graduates of the biotechnology and genetic engineering along with their higher education certificates providing that they successfully complete the requirements of their degree.
The DS becomes one of the main tools to facilitate the mobility and employability of graduates. It aims to provide enough data free from any value-judgements to promote international transparency and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates, etc) worldwide. It facilitates the admission of students or graduates for further academic studies or training and provide a smooth transition from one course to another and between countries thus removing barriers to working, studying or training in Europe or other parts of the world.
The DS was designed to be a flexible, non-prescriptive tool providing a thorough description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were successfully completed by the individual named on the original diploma or certificate to which the supplement is appended
The DS includes of the following sections: 
  1. Identifying the holder of the qualification.
  2. Information identifying the qualification.
  3. Information on the level of the qualification.
  4. Information on the content of the qualification, the results obtained, and ECTS credits awarded.
  5. Information on the function of the qualification.
  6. Certification of the Diploma Supplement.
  7. Information on the language of instruction to obtain the degree.
  8. The diploma supplement, which is written in English, is automatically issued, is free of charge and is being issued to every student upon graduation.

Periodically, students, alumni and our graduate employers are asked for feedback on educational, academic and/or work experiences and the quality of services provided to our students. This feedback is of high relevance and helps to further develop the program curricula, individual courses and to enhance the teaching and learning environment, as well as help determine how we can best serve students in the future​​​.

The European credit point transfer system (ECTS):
ECTS is a learner-centered system for credit accumulation and transfer, based on the principle of transparency of the learning, teaching and assessment processes. Its objective is to facilitate the planning, delivery and evaluation of study programs and student mobility by recognizing learning achievements and
qualifications and periods of learning.
The values of the European Credit Point Transfer System (ECTS) and the credit hours system of the chemistry program courses are shown in the below link:
