Princess Sumaya University for Technology has been ranked second locally, after the University of Jordan, in all axes of the QS World University Rankings 2023, figuring in the (800-1000) category. The University is also listed as 73rd globally (1st locally) in the Employment Index for its graduates, according to the results announced today at Chandigarh University, India.

The University has also made remarkable progress in the criteria of academic reputation, number of international students, and reputation with employers, which indicates how PSUT’s graduates stand out in the local and global labor markets. PSUT also rose to the (401-450) category in the field of Computer Science and Information Systems, according to these rankings.

PSUT, which was established in 1991, last year saw 96% of its graduates find employment within six months of their graduation. That figure stood at 90% in 2020, up from 89% in 2019. 98% of PSUT’s graduates work in the private sector, and 95 graduates are serving as managers for local and international companies.

PSUT’s President, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai, confirmed that this is a well-deserved achievement, which has been brought into reality through years of persistent efforts, and according to a strategic plan that is based on the principle of harmonization between the University’s specializations and the needs and requirements of the labor markets.

Prof. Al-Refai also indicated that PSUT graduates have become formidable figures in the competitive job market, due to their knowledge and practical and life skills that make them sought after for recruitment.  He noted that many PSUT graduates work in major local and international companies such as Google and Microsoft, among others.

Al-Refai pointed out that PSUT, which holds an annual conference to harmonize its specializations with the requirements of modern labor markets, and holds a forum each semester to bring together its graduates and students with employers, under the slogan "My job from my university", seeks to be among the top 500 universities in international rankings in the coming years.

It is noteworthy that PSUT obtained five stars in all aspects of the international QS Stars Ratings 2022 global assessment, and in the field of e-learning.

Furthermore, the International Education Magazine listed PSUT’s King Talal School of Business Technology among the top 10 business colleges in Asia and the Pacific region for this year, following a survey it conducted of the opinions of graduates and employers in terms of students' readiness to engage in the labor market and the knowledge and skills they acquire.
