Program Description

Medical Engineering


Medical Engineering Department was founded in 2000 to supply local and regional markets with qualified graduates enable to meet global advances and modern developments in Medical Engineering fields. The Department started academic studies on 24 candidates in 2000. The number of admitted students increased gradually to reach about 250 in 2019/2020 academic year. More than 600 students are graduated since the Department foundation. According to the Department records, the graduates occupy decent positions inside and outside Jordan. Also some of them joined post graduate studies.


The recent accreditation effort was successful and the Medical Engineering Department has been accredited by the Engineering  Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET in 2021.
