About the Center
In order to contribute to the development of the university education system and in line with the Jordanian strategy for the development of knowledge and scientific research by focusing on quality not quantity, the Center for Quality Assurance and Accreditation was established to ensure the quality of the University’s academic and administrative process in accordance with the requirements of local and international quality and accreditation systems. All programs at PSUT are accredited by the Jordanian Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission of Higher Education. In addition, four Bachelor’s degree programs offered by the King Hussein School of Computing Sciences and the King Abdullah II School of Engineering are accredited by the internationally renowned ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). Furthermore, the accreditation process by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) has been started at the King Talal School for Business Technology. The Center consists of two units: The Quality and Accreditation Unit, and the Development and Evaluation Unit.
QAAC derives its vision and mission from that of PSUT, which is to serve the goals of improving the education process, spreading the culture of scientific research, and community service. The Center is responsible for following up and processing the accreditation of all PSUT programs, applications of new academic programs, maintaining student capacity for existing programs, and ensuring the conformance of all academic programs to the criteria set by the Jordanian Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission of Higher Education. Furthermore, the Center serves all of the Schools by assisting in the pursuance of international accreditations.
At QAAC, we believe in institutional work, and thus work as active partners with all of the University’s Schools, centers, and departments, in order to realize PSUT’s vision, mission, and objectives. We welcome your inquiries, suggestions, and comments for the purpose of continuous improvement and transforming the vision, mission and objectives into achievable implementation plans.
