The students therefore take several specialized courses in communications engineering such as Cellular Communications, Optical Communications, Communication Networks, Digital Signal Processing, and Microwave Engineering. These courses serve to strengthen their knowledge in the field and prepare them to excel by graduation time. The department also has several specialized laboratories that are well equipped with state-of-the-art technologies where students can acquire both practical skills and theoretical knowledge.
The department has established close ties with Jordanian communications companies from the private sector. These ties facilitate the conduction of specialized senior projects and provide students with practical field training prior to graduation. Many national awards, from the Jordan Engineers Association and the National Technology Parade, have been granted to students in this program during the last few years for the excellence of their senior design projects. Our Communications Engineering students have also been exposed to world-wide research by publishing research papers and participating in international conferences.
The curriculum is based on 160 credit semester hours. Students usually graduate in five years or less. The program accepts students who succeed in their Jordanian General Secondary Exam/Science Stream, or equivalent, with a minimum average of 80%.
