It gives us great satisfaction to see that our graduates receive recognition from national and international IT firms. The University adheres to an ongoing policy of forging strong links with the labor market, and has cultivated good relations with both local and international large IT companies. Several agreements have also been signed with academic institutions and well-known universities worldwide in order to exchange experiences, knowledge and technology. KHSCS continues to attain scientific and academic achievements locally, regionally and internationally. In the summer of 2013, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited the B.Sc. program in Computer Science, among other programs. PSUT is the only university in Jordan with an ABET-accredited program in this specialization, which continues to be considered among the best programs in the region and the world. ABET accreditation is considered a great milestone for PSUT, bringing great prestige to the University, its faculty members, and students.

The University has achieved worldwide recognition and is cited on the ABET official website among a list of elite higher education institutions in the world that offer ABET accredited programs. Over the last fifteen years, PSUT’s curriculum has been validated as PSUT graduates have established impressive track records and built successful careers. Since receiving the ABET accreditation of the B.Sc. in CS program, KHSCS has focused on standardizing all courses and curriculum to meet ABET-recommended formats and policies, and thus provide high quality assurance for the academic programs offered by KHSCS.
