A more logical extension of teaching activities is basic research. Hence, the college has also the role of contributing to the development and integration of technology for civilian or military uses through its valuable source of scientific knowledge and expertise. This is achieved through faculty members' engagement in real-world problems in an industry collaborative environment through projects. Furthermore, Problem-Based Learning is an instructional approach that makes the student the focus of the learning process, seeking to empower them such that they take responsibility for their learning. Engaging graduate students with industry enables them to acquire a global perspective about the core attributes expected in future engineering jobs. In today's large-scale industrial market, companies tend to prefer graduates with design skills attained through the project approach.
This track is oriented towards solving specific problems or challenges that a certain industry is facing. This track will initiate by the industries by sending their request to the university by filling an online application that is available at the website of the deanship of research.
JUST team along with the industry representative will prepare a Term of Reference (ToR) document for this request and launch a solicitation among JUST staff. The selection committee will select a suitable proposal and recommend it for funding. The proposal then will go through the already existing channels within JUST for funding.
