Established in June 1976 by a Royal Decree, Yarmouk University has developed steadily into one of the largest and most prestigious state-supported educational institutions in Jordan. We currently have 27850 students, 936 faculty members, and 1740 administrative and technical staff spread over 13 faculties that offer 56 bachelor degree programs, 63 master degree programs, and 19 PhD programs in a variety of specializations. We also have 11 centers for research and career development.
The university has carved a unique niche for itself in northern Jordan through the diversity of its programs which aim to strike a fair balance between the humanities on the one hand and science and engineering specializations on the other. We hope to inspire our young students by offering a variety of specializations combined with excellence in teaching, opportunities for community service and extra-curricular activities, and encouragement of innovation. Our aim is not merely to produce degree-holders but rather productive citizens with integrity, vision, reasoning, tolerance, and a sense of purpose.
In recent years, the phenomenon of globalization coupled with an overall economic decline has resulted in an unprecedented scarcity of employment opportunities almost everywhere – Jordan is no exception. At Yarmouk University we aim to combat this challenge by offering courses and training programs for both students and staff through our centers, and by partnering with business, industry, NGO’s and other local or foreign institutions. Several companies have established incubators at the university to offer students training and work experience that prepares them for the wider job market and creates a climate conducive to entrepreneurship and innovation.
Research is also one of Yarmouk University’s top priorities, especially within the context of Jordan’s social, economic, environmental, and developmental needs. Several research projects are currently underway in partnership with local and international institutions. Also, the recent establishment of technology transfer offices in public universities, including ours, has served to encourage the commercialization of research findings and inventions – a development that many researchers find appealing.
