Jordan University of Science and Technology, since its establishment, has been keen to keep pace with global advancements in higher education. The Academic Development Center (ADC) was established in 2004/2005 while the Quality Assurance Office was established in 2007/2008. Due to the interplay of the two units, the merger of the two units was decided and the Academic Development and Quality Assurance Center (ADQAC) was established in 2010.
The Center is an independent scientific administrative unit that plays an important strategic and governing role as an internal audit that formulates strategies and quality policies that promote advancements in academic performance. The center also aims to prepare and implement the institution's strategic plan for quality assurance and accreditation to enable all academic programs of the university and administrative units achieve academic and research excellence. Also, the center acts as an internal audit unit that examines the university's academic and administrative performance according to predetermined scientific criteria. Also, it evaluates the performance of faculty members in order to develop the teaching-learning process and environment. In addition, the center monitors a number of key performance indicators and performance and feedback statistics about academic and administrative processes at the institution at large.
