PSUT discusses with University of Colorado, USA, the possibility of launching joint study programs

In a meeting held via video communication technology, Princess Sumaya University for Technology’s Vice President for Administrative Affairs, Prof. Mohammad Sababheh, discussed with Dr. Kathleen Fairfax, the Vice Provost for International Affairs at Colorado State University, ways to bring about constructive cooperation between the two universities, including joint study programs, and the possibility of obtaining scholarships for PSUT students.

The two parties also discussed ways to enable students from PSUT’s Computer Science Department to enroll in Colorado State University after their second year of study with a view to gaining two bachelor's degrees, the first from PSUT in Computer Science and the second from Colorado in Data Science.

Sababheh said that PSUT is keen to build bridges with prestigious universities worldwide, emphasizing that the University, under the directives of HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of its Board of Trustees, seeks to network with these universities in order to enrich the experience of its students and keep them up to date with the most recent expertise.

Sababheh added that PSUT provides all the appropriate environments for its students. He stressed the importance of this agreement, which will benefit the students and make them more qualified to enter the labor market and measure up to global competition.

Dr. Kathleen Fairfax praised PSUT, recognizing its academic standing at the local and international levels, and welcomed all cooperation and partnerships with it in the near future through agreements and memoranda of understanding.

The two parties also agreed to grant PSUT students the same discount given to American students if they choose to complete their studies at the University of Colorado.

The meeting was attended by Dr. Ashraf Al-Ahmad, the Dean of the King Hussein School of Computing Sciences, Dr. Raad Al-Qassas, Head of the Computer Science Department, and Dr. Yahya Al-Khatatbeh, the Head of the Department of Basic Sciences. The University of Colorado delegation included the Head of the Department of Computer Science, Dr. Craig, and the Dean of Science and Joint Programs Coordinator, Dr. Simon Trevor.
