Dean's welcoming words
It is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to your faculty- the Faculty of Science and Arts - the faculty that has an important role in preparing and graduating conscious generations in various fields of science. The generations that contribute into society’s growth and evolution. Our faculty is eager in providing its students with the best that it can so the students can reflect a true bright image of both the faculty, and the university.
Within the framework of the university's vision and mission, the faculty offers comprehensive and high-level academic programs in which theoretical studies and practical applications are combined to prepare an outstanding graduate who can compete in job opportunities locally, regionally and internationally.
Teaching in this faculty is conducted by a distinguished group of faculty members who spare no effort in serving our students, and it is not limited to the scientific aspects, but also includes the personal, and social aspects.
This faculty includes six academic departments in various sciences: 1. Department of Biotechnology and Genetics Engineering (formerly known as the Department of Applied Life Sciences, and in implementation of the decision of the Council of Higher Education issued on April 29, 2020, which includes merging the programs of the Department of Applied Life Sciences and the Department of Biotechnology and Engineering Genetics In one department to become the Department of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering, which started work as of 1/6/2020) 2. Department of Applied Chemical Sciences 3. English Department of Applied Studies. 4. Department of Humanities 5. Department of Mathematics and Statistics 6. Department of Applied Physics. The faculty awards five departments in bachelor's and master's degrees in both tracks (comprehensive and thesis), and is considered one of the main faculty’s of the university as it has been awarding students degrees in various basic sciences since the establishment of the university. It is an important tributary to the professional, and educational labor market locally and internationally. The Faculty is considered the first most important, and essential stop for every student at the university.
Proceeding from our belief in the important role that falls on the shoulders of the Faculty of Science and Arts, we will spare no effort to complete the hard and sincere work to lead our students towards the paths of glory, and progress. There's a highly qualified cadre with 120 faculty members, and a team of qualified lecturers, laboratory supervisors, technicians and administrative staff. The faculty annually receives new undergraduate students who are accepted into the faculty’s s majors and in all majors of the university. It is preparing to receive undergraduate students for the year 2021 and new students who will enroll in master programs in various departments of the faculty, noting that there are 340 students studying in the master's program from graduate students in the various programs offered by the faculty . With 36,675 undergraduate students.
In addition to its educational and training services, the faculty provides students with multidisciplinary activities that students practice in partnership with faculty members, and motivates them to participate in order to build and refine their personalities and prepare them with a spirit of initiative and patience. The will and determination to achieve goals and objectives and meet challenges.
In the seventh discussion paper of His Majesty King Abdullah II, His Majesty called for investing the energies of the young generation, enhancing their creativity and enhancing their skills, and highlighted the urgent need to transform and reform education to keep pace with the global academic elite.
In line with the directives of His Majesty the King and the vision of the university, the faculty has constantly worked to provide the infrastructure, and resources to develop the capabilities and capabilities of students and update the curricula to track new scientific innovations. Proceeding from the vision of His Majesty the King and in achieving the mission of the university, the Jordan University of Science and Technology was a pioneer in the application of e-learning, and the faculty aligns with the university in achieving everything that is useful and new. The faculty has recently implemented integrated educational approaches such as blended learning and project-based learning to open the door for students to share knowledge and creativity in different learning environments.
The Faculty is working on obtaining international accreditation for all its departments, and in order to achieve this, the Department of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering obtained accreditation, and the German ASIIN certificate for the undergraduate program in Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering was accredited on 10/21/2019. The Department of Applied Chemical Sciences received Canadian accreditation, Canadian Chemistry Society (CSC) certificate accreditation for its undergraduate program in the Department of Chemical Sciences on December 28, 2020. In addition to progressing in Applied Physics, Department of Mathematics and Statistics to obtain international ABET accreditation during this year 2021, this translates To master the performance of faculty staff and the role they play, it reveals insights into engaging students as learning partners rather than mere recipients of knowledge.
New laboratories have been set up, Technical Assistance Programs (TAPs) have been launched, exchange programs have been activated, and advisory boards have been set up for key local institutions and entrepreneurs as partners to link our international labor organizations with labor market requirements.
We strive to empower our students to meet the challenges in their future after they graduate, we know they are capable, and we are proud of them.
