In the summer of 2013, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) granted accreditation to the B.Sc. program in Computer Science, among other programs. PSUT is the only university in Jordan to offer 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 with it great prestige to the University, its teaching 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.
