Program Description

Civil Engineering


The Department of Civil Engineering (CE) at Al Ahliyya Amman University was established in September 2008 to meet the market demand for qualified civil engineers both locally and regionally. The first (44 students) were admitted in the second semester of the academic year 2008/2009. Since then, an increasing number of students is enrolled in the department every year. Our efforts are focused on providing students with the necessary knowledge and experience that enable them to compete in the labor market of the 21st century.

The department has highly qualified and experienced full-time faculty members . The Department of Civil Engineering has a range of well-equipped laboratories including concrete materials, pavement, hydraulics, environmental, surveying and geotechnical.

The department has established a system that conforms to the highest academic standards. In this context, we constantly think about the future and update our B.Sc. program to meet the needs of the market.
