Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT) has emerged in the past six years as a
centre of excellence in ICT education, research and innovation and a model of
the future university in Jordan. It was established in 1991 as a non-for profit
academic arm of the Royal Scientific Society (RSS), which is considered as the
only comprehensive applied research centre in Jordan. PSUT has a long track
record in scientific cooperation with Europe in a number of FP7, Tempus and
Erasmus Mundus projects and with close links with many European universities.
PSUT strives to become a nucleus for a modern Jordanian knowledge industry,
which actively animates the process of socio-economic and cultural development
locally, regionally and globally. PSUT aims at supplying Jordanian, regional
and global societies with technically and scientifically qualified ICT
graduates and with solid applied research work. PSUT has been actively involved
in the eLearning domain where it has led an initiative to promote online
engineering in Jordan.
