In the framework of serious efforts being made to network with other Jordanian universities, Princess Sumaya University for Technology and Al-Ahliyya Amman University have signed a cooperation agreement that entails the two parties sharing library and information services. This agreement comes in response to attempts to strengthen cooperation between sister universities in Jordan.
President of PSUT, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai signed the agreement on behalf of the University, while AAU was represented by its president, Prof. Sari Hamdan. The signing was attended by PSUT’s Vice President for Administrative Affairs and Vice President for Research and Development. Also present were the University’s Director of the Office of International Relations Dr. Radhi Hamadeen, Library Director Mrs. Nermeen Shuqum, and Head of the Supplies Department Mr. Shadi Hameedat, in addition to the Head of the Public Relations Department at AAU, Mr. Khalid Al-Zoubi.
Prof. Al-Refai affirmed the importance of the agreement which opens the doors to cooperation between the sister Jordanian universities and reinforces the exchange of expertise between the two parties, as well as allowing them to benefit from library and learning resources. This agreement comes as a result of the University’s exemplary work since its establishment in 1991 in the preparation of academic curricula commensurate with modern educational methods aimed at providing a generation of graduates who are both academically and practically equipped to meet the requirements of the global labor market. This reflects the focus of PSUT on the international dimension through the forging of international cooperation agreements, which in turn works to realize the University's policy and the vision of HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of the University’s Board of Trustees, of creating a strong network with international universities.
Prof. Al-Refai also praised AAU’s reputation and its proven excellence in its taught programs and specializations, highlighting the fact that AAU has obtained international accreditation for some of its programs.
The President of Al-Ahliyya Amman University, Prof. Sari Hamdan, praised the excellent reputation of Princess Sumaya University for Technology, stating that this cooperation constitutes a great opportunity, especially since PSUT enjoys a good reputation internationally for its taught programs, has obtained international accreditation, and enjoys a record of its students winning international competitions, achieving outstanding academic results, and having all-round distinguished outputs.
The two parties agreed that the Deans of the Schools at both universities should hold periodic meetings to set shared work plans in the near future.
