Dr. Rami O. Alrawashdeh
Ph.D. Academic Rank: Associate Professor.

The department of Mining and Minerals Engineering at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University established in 2004. Our vision is that MME department will be an active department which has distinctive academic and research program that achieve a distinguished education for his students and a high level of research among regional and world institutions by providing academic and research services through enthusiastic teaching staff and students.

Mining provides the raw materials and energy resources needed to sustain modern civilization.  The mining curriculum combines basic engineering subjects, topics in geology and essential courses in mining to prepare graduates to discover evaluate and develop mineral deposits.  Graduates of this program design, operate, manage, and reclaim mines and mining facilities in a profitable, safe, and environmentally responsible manner.   A career in mining engineering requires a strong background in mathematics, computer applications, economics, communication skills, and physical sciences, particularly geology, physics, and chemistry.

A mining engineering graduate from AHU will have the ability to:

  •  Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  • Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  • Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.
  • Function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  • Understand the professional and ethical responsibility.
  • Communicate effectively.
  • Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context.
  • Recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning.
  • Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
