About the Faculty
Faculty of Science, originated with the beginning of the founding of the
university in 1994, was combined with the Faculty of Information Technology,
until it was separated in 2015, in response to the urgent need for society for
qualified graduates in the disciplines of basic sciences. The faculty currently
made up of three academic departments, namely: mathematics, physics, and the
unity of service courses, all of which basically use English for teaching. The
faculty is currently considering introducing two departments: chemistry and
biology. The university provides the faculty with elite academic staff members
and administrators. Faculty of Science represents the basic structure for the
various disciplines in Zarqa University.
The faculty offers a bachelor's degree in mathematics and physics disciplines
after finishing study (132 credit hours) with a cumulative average over (60%).
The college also offers graduate programs, the Master's program in mathematics.
Departments and programs
Faculty of science is made up three academic departments:
The department was established and gains specialized accreditation since the
founding of the university in 1994. Mathematics is the major science among all
natural sciences in addition to the importance of this science in human lives
and communities. The university has prepared an integrated a plan to the
department includes: Modern Algebra, real and complex analysis, topology,
statistics, differential equations and Operations Research, and others.
Department of Physics:
The department of physics was established since the university was founded,
under the name of medical physics and was providing basic materials in physics
for many departments and faculties. In 2011 it gained specialized accreditation
under the name of the Department of Physics. The university established for this
purposes all specialized laboratories such as physics laboratory 1 and 2 and the
advance physics laboratory 1 and 2, Laboratory of Electronics and Optics
Laboratory. The department offers basic and advanced materials/courses in the
physical sciences, such as electronics and optics science and modern physics,
classical mechanics, thermal and nuclear physics, and others.
Unit of service courses
This unit was established and gained specialized
accreditation in 2015, since then it provides the basic material/courses for
mathematics department and many faculties such as information technology,
engineering, pharmacy, nursing, faculty of allied medical sciences.
Faculty achievements since it was established:
The faculty organizes an international refereed and periodically conference in
mathematics and statistics once every two years, which has been held four times
- The faculty began in 2011/2012 graduate program (master's degree) in mathematics.
- First Conference on Medical Physics, held by the college in 1999/2000.
