Mechanical Engineering / Renewable Energy Department


It is one of the newly established academic departments, which was established at the beginning of the first semester of the academic year 2018/2019, to meet the needs of the Kingdom of Jordan, the Arab and regional world of mechanical engineers.

Mechanical engineers are specialized in the fields of renewable energy from the theoretical, practical and research aspects. The Mechanical Engineering / Renewable Energy specialty is a branch of engineering that combines the mechanical engineering and renewable energy specialties. It is specialized in studying methods of generating and transmitting various forms of energy in an effective, safe and economically feasible manner. Also, enables specialists to use it in all different fields of industry. As renewable energy has become an important field of study in recent times, due to the growing need for energy and the search for other forms of renewable energy has become an economic necessity.
