Bachelor in Architectural Engineering


Program Description


Students will gain engineering skills through their studying journey with us, so the students will go through improve their engineering skills, creativity, innovation, management and how to be committed to the professional ethics in order to be able to find the ideal solutions for the engineering problems that face the society and industries in all professional fields after the graduation, and so we achieved the goal of generating a generation of engineers who can build our future sustainable developed communities.

The engineering faculty has invested all abilities and resources to attract highly qualified Academics and technicians in order to upgrade the engineering teaching process and give updated scientific information.

The reason of the faculty attention to students is that they are the real wealth for developing nations also they are the intellectual brains to invest in and they, therefore, considered the sources of building the foundations of a better future, in addition, to push the wheel of development and renaissance forward in all fields.

Students have to do optimal efforts in order to gain the maximum knowledge from the highly qualified experts who will be with you in all your studying time.


Aqaba port will play a key role in the bright future aspirations of the Jordanian Hashemite Kingdom, which will lead Aqaba to occupy a distinct and leading regional place in the field of trade, economy, technology and culture, this growth will positively reflect in the next progress and well-being of generations. Therefore, the Faculty of Engineering is looking forward to:

  • Achieve distinguished place in all college specialization, disciplines, teaching, and researching, to make it from the elites first among Arab countries and worldwide later.
  • Distinguishing includes, but not limited to the following:
  • First: high efficiency in teaching, including the level of faculty academic staff and curriculum, auditorium, laboratories, computers, and training …etc.
  • Second: acceptance and care of students instruct them and follow up the development of the academic and applied levels.
  • Third: follow-up the graduate students in the vocational and career biographies.
  • Develop a strong relationship with the local community and across the kingdom of Jordan, in order to achieve aspirations in accordance with the Ministry of Higher Education regulations.

Program Learning Outcomes
