Princess Sumaya University for Technology continues to add new names to its shining constellation of students who represent the University and raise its name among the top international universities. Mohi Al Deen Zaatar, a student of Electrical Power and Energy Engineering at the King Abdullah II School of Engineering, has been chosen this year to undergo training at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California under an initiative of the Crown Prince Hussein Foundation which works to support students and researchers and give them the opportunity to show their excellence and develop their spirit of innovation. Mohi Al Deen is the fourth student from PSUT to be chosen to train at NASA’s international research laboratories.

The President of PSUT, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai expressed his pride in this latest in an ever-growing list of achievements by the University and its students who have firmly carried the name of PSUT and Jordan into the world of space exploration. Prof. Al-Refai also said how proud he is of the students’ inexhaustible capacity for growth, encouraged by the fertile academic environment and thirst for knowledge that are characteristics of the PSUT learning experience. The University stands out among its peers in the region thanks to its unique, high-quality programs and specializations, which serves to meet the aspirations of HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of PSUT’s Board of Trustees, to provide young people with support and develop their talents with a view to bringing forth a generation of outstanding, creative, socially conscious youth.

It is noteworthy that every year a student from PSUT is selected to participate in the Crown Prince Foundation initiative set up by HRH the Crown Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II. In previous years, PSUT students Zaid Kawar, Zaid Dhabayan and Farah Salah were selected to participate in applied research projects at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for their excellence and leadership that reflect the excellent international reputation of the University.
