About the Center

 

       PSUT established the Center for Quality Assurance and Accreditation 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 were accredited by the internationally renowned ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). The Center consists of two units: the Quality and Accreditation Unit, and the Development and Evaluation Unit.

 

       The Center has prepared a comprehensive guide to the running procedures of all faculties and departments within the University to ensure and control quality. Furthermore, the teaching and administrative staff have undergone a series of training and development courses, in accordance with international standards, to keep them up-to-date on a regular basis with latest developments and to hone their abilities and administrative, research and teaching skills. The Center has a regulatory and supervisory role for the University Proficiency Exam administered by the Higher Education Accreditation Commission (HEAC) and works ensure that the exam follows quality requirements each year. The Center has played an important and active role in several projects run in cooperation with the European Union and local and European universities, including the EQuAM and EQTel projects for the dissemination and development of quality culture among Jordanian universities and related institutions and departments.

 

     The Center’s future plans include obtaining the National Quality Assurance Certificate for the University and its programs, preparing the academic quality assurance guide, and attaining advanced rankings in both the Jordanian university classification system and other international classifications.
