AMMAN – Al Hussein Technical University (HTU) on Monday organised an open day event on Monday for the youth of Haqiq, a Crown Prince Foundation initiative.

The open day included a presentation on the programmes and specialisations offered by HTU and a question and answer session with the HTU President Labib Khadra and faculty members, according to a statement by the Crown Prince Foundation.

Khadra underlined that the university was established for youth pursuing technical education and professionalism.

The president outlined the university's vision and mission, pointing out that it seeks to reach out to the largest possible segment of youth, in implementation of the visions of HRH Crown Prince Hussein.

Amjad Fahoum, an HTU faculty member, gave a detailed presentation on the programmes offered, including electrical engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, energy engineering and architectural technology.

Fahoum underlined the "dynamic, innovative and market-driven study plans and curricula", emphasizing HTU’s focus on practical and technical skills.

Meanwhile, Fahoum noted that HTU boasts a "distinguished educational model in terms of the specialties, educational environment, international accreditation and location" as HTU is headquartered in King Hussein Business Park, which, the statement said, offers a "safe and vibrant environment for students, including more than 50 international and national companies, in addition to entertainment and sports facilities".

Towards the end of the meeting, the students toured the university premises to have a first-hand look at the various facilities.

Al Hussein Technical University, founded by the Crown Prince Foundation, will receive its first batch of undergraduate students for the academic year 2017-2018 at the beginning of October.
