Applied Science University: Most Innovative Community Impact Research University Middle East 2019

Professor: Mahfuz Judeh at the Annual Investment Meeting 2019 in Dubai, World Trade Centre

Through open collaboration and dedicated research, all are enriched and strengthened” – that’s something of a mantra for Applied Science University (ASU), a leading education institution in Jordan. ASU has forged strategic partnerships with universities in Australia, Italy, the UK, and around the Arab world to exchange scientific knowledge and spur innovative research. Over the past two decades, ASU has received top ratings from national and global accreditation associations — one of the few private institutions in Jordan to achieve such distinction. That vote of confidence has helped to boost the university’s international enrolment, with 53 nationalities represented on campus. The university offers 26 undergraduate and six graduate degree programmes through eight faculties — including Engineering, Pharmacy, Business, Information Technology, and Nursing. ASU aims to set new standards for excellence in scientific research and community service. Through partnership with one of the biggest hospitals in Jordan, it provides crucial training opportunities for medical students as well as vital services for the local community. The campus features state-of-the-art laboratories — including one of the largest anatomy labs in the region — where students enjoy hands-on learning and gain practical real-world experience. Engineering students are encouraged to develop and test energy solution ideas at the university’s Renewable Energy Centre. Lecture halls are equipped with audio-visual and telemedicine capabilities, enabling interactive collaboration with other research centres worldwide. ASU students show strong civic commitment and log many hours of community service along with their studies, further polishing the university’s golden standard of success through service. The judging panel congratulates Applied Science University, the 2019 winner of the Most Innovative Community Impact Research University (Middle East) award.
