The College of Architecture and Design is an extraordinary institution. The diversity among academics, hailing from diverse corners of the globe with unique cultural backgrounds, is an enriching catalyst in enhancing our educational landscape. Comprising three distinct departments—Architecture, City Planning and Design, and Design and Visual Communication—this college orchestrates a comprehensive and enriched educational experience.
Established in 2008, the past years have seen a steadfast commitment to embracing the most evolved and successful theories, accompanied by the introduction of elevated academic standards. Our academic programs have evolved to align closely with the environmental and societal needs of Jordan and the Middle East. A key facet of our educational philosophy is to navigate the challenges posed by globalization and the rapid strides in science and technology without compromising our cultural identity.
Our College of Architecture and Design programs are tailored to meet these challenges head-on. We impart foundational principles and comprehensively equip our graduates for their roles as architects, planners, and designers (filmmakers, animators, game designers, media designers, and website designers). From honing presentation and marketing skills to fostering effective communication, creativity, and critical thinking, we ensure a holistic educational journey that integrates practical knowledge with theoretical depth. Our focus on diverse problem-solving approaches and sustainability underscores our commitment to excellence in research and nurturing critical thinking skills.
Further enhancing our educational pursuit is our strategic location in The Kingdom of Jordan, a central hub in the Middle East, amplifying our appeal and relevance to the region. The recent NAAB accreditation of our Architecture program and ongoing preparations for international accreditation across our other programs underscore our dedication to elevating educational standards. This commitment sustains our esteemed reputation among Architecture Faculties in Jordan, the Middle East, and globally.
Joining Jordan University of Science and Technology at the College of Architecture and Design is a source of immense pride in my career journey.
