Computer Graphics and Animation Department

The Department of Computer Graphics and Animation is the first of its kind in Jordan and the Middle East which began teaching program subjects in the academic year 2005-2006.

The department mission is to integrate scientific knowledge and practical skills in the field of Computer Graphics and Animation, and follow up the most important developments in information technology and computer. Furthermore, the department aims to provide the local and Arab market with expertise in the fields of multimedia and animation to meet the growing needs in these areas.

The study plan was adopted after an in depth study of the animation and games needs of the industry in Jordan, and after comparing the plans adopted by specialized international universities in this field. Consequently, the department aims to provide students with the basic skills in computer science, to provide them with the scientific background based on a solid theoretical basis and to link the theoretical knowledge and practical skills in real applications. To this end, computer labs with specialized software have been established and linked to the Internet thus, providing students with appropriate tools to receive and obtain knowledge. Classroom lectures are offered in the labs of the department to integrate theoretical knowledge with applied practical knowledge.

The department is in constant contact with the pioneers in the labour market related to animation technology, to cooperate and consult on the development of the study plan and the establishment of scientific activities and art exhibitions, in addition to providing training opportunities for the students of the department.
