COMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING B.Sc. - About
The B.Sc. in Communications Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The curriculum of this program has been designed to provide a strong background in electrical engineering in general as well as to focus on both wired and wireless communications. The students therefore take several specialized courses in communications engineering such as Cellular Communications, Optical Communications, Communication Networks, Digital Signal Processing and Microwave Engineering that strengthen their knowledge in the field and prepare them to excel by graduation time. The department has also several specialized laboratories that are well equipped with the state-of-the-art technologies where students acquire both practical skills and theoretical knowledge.
The department established close ties with Jordanian communications companies from the private sector. These ties facilitate the conduction of specialized senior projects and provide practical field training to student prior to graduation. Many national awards, from Jordan Engineers Association and the National Technology Parade, were granted to students in this program in the last few years for the excellence of their senior design projects. The communications engineering students have also been exposed to world-wide research by publishing research papers and participating in international conferences.
The curriculum is based on 160 credits semester hours. Students usually graduate in five years or less. The program accepts students who succeed in their Jordanian General Secondary Exam/Science Stream, or equivalent, with an average of at least 80%.
To produce highly qualified, well-rounded, and motivated communications engineering graduates who can pursue exemplary careers, engage in life-long learning; provide leadership and service Jordan and the region. In addition, the program pursues innovative research applied to Communications Engineering and across other disciplines in order to serve the needs of society by expanding the body of knowledge in the field.
