Located in Irbid, 90km to the north of the Capital Amman. Yarmouk University was Established in June 1976 by a Royal Decree. The University has developed steadily into one of the largest and most prestigious state-supported educational institutions in Jordan. There are 27850 students, 936 faculty members, and 1740 administrative and technical staff spread over 13 faculties that offer 56 bachelor degree programs, 63 master degree programs, and 19 PhD programs in a variety of specializations. In addition the University has 11 centers for research and career development.
The university has carved a unique niche for itself in northern Jordan through the diversity of its programs which aim to strike a fair balance between the humanities on the one hand and science and engineering specializations on the other. We hope to inspire our young students by offering a variety of specializations combined with excellence in teaching, opportunities for community service and extra-curricular activities, and encouragement of innovation. Our aim is not merely to produce degree-holders but rather productive citizens with integrity, vision, reasoning, tolerance, and a sense of purpose.
In recent years, the phenomenon of globalization coupled with an overall economic decline has resulted in an unprecedented scarcity of employment opportunities almost everywhere – Jordan is no exception. At Yarmouk University we aim to combat this challenge by offering courses and training programs for both students and staff through our centers, and by partnering with business, industry, NGO’s and other local or foreign institutions. Several companies have established incubators at the university to offer students training and work experience that prepares them for the wider job market and creates a climate conducive to entrepreneurship and innovation.
Research is also one of Yarmouk University’s top priorities, especially within the context of Jordan’s social, economic, environmental, and developmental needs. Several research projects are currently underway in partnership with local and international institutions. Also, the recent establishment of technology transfer offices in public universities, including ours, has served to encourage the commercialization of research findings and inventions – a development that many researchers find appealing.
Much has been accomplished over the past three and a half decades since the establishment of this outstanding institution, but much still needs to be done. I am therefore both happy and honored to serve Yarmouk University in these exciting and challenging times, and look forward to working with utmost devotion, together with the entire university community, to achieve its noble goals.
