Department of Civil Engineering
1992, the Department of Civil Engineering was established at the
Applied Science University (ASU). The department started its academic
activities by offering a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil
Engineering. To fulfill the requirements of this degree, a student must
complete 160 credit hours and a practical training for 8 consecutive
weeks in civil engineering firms and organizations that are considered
certified by the department.
1992 till now, the Department of Civil Engineering has shown a
significant increase in the number of students. The current number of
students is 863, which represents the maximum allowable student/faculty
ratio by the Jordanian Ministry of Higher Education.
department has a highly qualified academic staff with outstanding
academic and industrial experiences in all branches of civil engineering
including: structural engineering, transportation engineering,
geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, hydraulic
engineering, materials engineering, and construction management.
department provides its students with all necessary facilities and
laboratories equipped with state of the art machines and equipment. The
department includes seven laboratories renovated continuously to ensure
high quality teaching and maintaining high standards matching with
modern techniques and contemporary innovations. The laboratories are
supervised by trained civil engineers with high qualifications and sound
The department of civil engineering consists of 20 faculty members. 15 PhD holders and 5 master's degree holders.
All faculty members are qualified with certified academic and practical expertise concerning all fields of civil engineering including structural engineering, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, water and environmental engineering, material engineering and project management.
The Faculty members follow up closely with students to keep up with the scientific and technological development, supervising contemporary graduation projects which earned several rewards on different sectorial and institutional levels in Jordan
department includes seven laboratories in various areas, which reflects
the university concern about the importance of the applied education
together with the theoretical education in its engineering programs.
Laboratories’ Supervisors and Technicians
department has 10 civil engineers supervise its laboratories, help with
the preparation for experiments, run the machines, and train students.
the department laboratories were recently renovated with full financial
support and guidance from the ASU. The renovation included supplying
all laboratories with modern equipment, apparatus, and computers to meet
national, regional, and international standards, and to make the
laboratories available for the use and support of the community.
