PSUT has emerged in the past 10 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, Horizon2020, 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 renewable energy and resource efficiency domain.
