Zaytoonah University International Engineering Conference on Sustainability: Design and Innovation 2014


The workshop is set up to allow about 25 to 30 participants from Germany and about 25 to 30 participants from Jordan to take part in it. Altogether, just slightly above 40 people should be there and report on the potential of utilizing solar energy in the areas of concentrated solar panel (CSP), solar cooling, PV Systems and Energy efficiency in buildings in Jordan and the ways how to utilize it to cut down the dependency on crude oil derived fuels.  The workshop will be organized as joint cooperation between the Higher Council for Science and Technology (HCST) and the DFG. Further, the workshop will be held at both the University of Jordan and Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan, where good facilities for the workshop are available there.         

This workshop has two main aims:

  • To build a consortium of researchers to work on various aspects of solar energy. Competing method should be investigated to find out what are the most efficient and cost effective solar energy applications of solar energy that may be utilized, with concentration of CSP, solar cooling and PV Systems.
  • Projects should be set up to deal with the problem of energy situation in Jordan after this workshop is held

Main topics of the workshop

The workshop covers both solar energy status in Jordan and its potential to be utilized in the fields of CSP solar cooling and PV systems.  This will include the followings:

  • Solar energy potential in Jordan
  • Renewable energy Legislations in Jordan
  • Concentrated solar power
  • Solar cooling and
  • PV systems

 Zaytoonah University International Engineering Conference on Design and Innovation in Infrastructure 2012 – ZEC Infrastructure 2012

Due to the presently active infrastructure works in Jordan, and the consequent academic emphasis on this kind of activity at Al-Zaytoonah University, this conference was emerging as the first of its kind in the country. The conference provided a forum for researchers, experts and engineers to discuss research ideas and state-of-the art papers, exchange knowledge and practices and review advances in related infrastructure topics. The conference hosted a number of keynote speakers who  provided the participants with a good view of the infrastructure scene. 


The 7th Jordanian International Electrical and Electronics Engineering Conference, (JIEEEC 2011) is organized by Jordan Engineers Association (JEA) in cooperation with the Institution of Engineering and Technology – The IET – Jordan section and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – The IEEE – Jordan section. 

In Conjunction with the 7th Jordanian International Electrical and Electronics Engineering Conference, the following workshops – with specialized focus on the latest technologies in the fields of:

  • Fortify your network with FortiGate UTM Solution
  • Increase efficiency by retrofitting motors and drives

Were held at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan.


The Third Global Conference on Renewable and Energy Efficiency for DEsert Regions "GCREEDER-III" 2011 was held in April from the 26th to the 28th – 2011 at University of Jordan and Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan.. This is the 3rd conference on renewable for desert regions, after two successful ones, the first of which was convened in 2006 and the second in 2009. 

The conference was sponsored by the University of Jordan, in cooperation with public and private sectors,Ministry of Higher Education, National Energy Research Center, and Al-Zaytoonah University in Additions to other universities, one of them is AL-Zaytoonah University of Jordan.
