Software engineering department aims at fostering success in our graduates through equipping them with excellent portfolio of technical, analytical and problem-solving skills needed for establishing a progressive career in software industry, pursuing their higher education or to start their own businesses. The department seeks addressing the ever-growing needs in all domains and sectors for robust and high-quality software systems that satisfy client expectations and comply with international standards i.e. IEEE, ACM, ISO and CMM.
Two decades ago, ISRA University was among the first universities in Jordan to offer an undergraduate program in software engineering (BSc). Later, it continued pioneering software engineering education by becoming the first to offer a postgraduate degree in software engineering (MSc). Now, we are delighted that our department is one the largest of its kind. Currently, we continue to sustain our success by improving the quality of our teaching standards and research outcomes and by adopting one of international accreditations and by creating partnerships with local communities, industry and other institutions.
At software engineering department, we are committed to nourish a positive academic environment focuses on students at the heart of our interest. All our teaching staff holds PhD degrees from top universities in the world according to QS and THE ranking. All of them are resolute and competent in both teaching and research. Our curriculum is designed to satisfy the local accreditation and quality assurance requirements and to meet the IEEE/ACM guidelines and standards. All course descriptions, syllabi, and teaching materials are continuously improved to enrich our students’ knowledge and to sharpen their practical hand-on and technical skills.
