Princess Sumaya University for Technology won first and second place in the Engineering division of the 2017/2018 Jordanian Universities Graduation Projects Competition, which was organized by the Jordan Engineers Association. The project that took first place was prepared in PSUT’s Department of Communications Engineering, under the title "Design and Simulation of a Fast Track System for Emergency Services". The project was carried out under the supervision of Dr. Rami Wahsha, and was the work of students (Anas Abu Al-Haija, Ibrahim Al-Maharmeh, and Mus’ab Al-Hajabi). In the same competition, second place was taken by a project produced by the Department of Electrical Engineering, entitled "Design, simulation and implementation of different techniques to track the maximum capacity of the multi-stage reflector". This project was the work of students Mohi Al Deen Zaatar and Waseem Abdul Haq, supervised by Dr. Majd Batarseh.
President of PSUT, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai, congratulated the winning teams and their supervisors on this achievement, and expressed his pride in this victory by PSUT students. He praised the efforts of students and their supervisors and their determination to perform well in national and international competitions that support their academic careers and hone their practical skills. These competitions provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their excellent capabilities and promote a spirit of cooperation and teamwork, as well as encouraging a noble competitive spirit between their peers in the various Jordanian universities. Prof. Al-Refai also thanked HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of the University’s Board of Trustees, for the continuous support she lends to the University’s students with the aim of raising PSUT up into the ranks of international universities and furthering the educational process.
It is noteworthy that the Graduation Projects Committee at the Jordan Engineers Association holds a number of annual graduation project competitions for the students of all Jordanian university engineering faculties in order to motivate those students to meet the challenge and raise the level of competition by encouraging them to come up with innovative and creative ideas for their graduation projects. One of the three competitions is the Graduation Projects Competition, which covers the disciplines of Civil Engineering, Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mining and Mineral Engineering, and Chemical Engineering. It is important to note that the projects submitted for the competition are those that were implemented during the academic year 2017/2018 only. When presented to the Committee, there must be nothing to indicate the identity of the student, the supervisor, or the university.
