The Hijjawi faculty of Engineering at Yarmouk university has recently formed an industrial advisory board from varieties of industries in Jordan. The board composes of 18 members who facilitates and coordinates University - industry interactions and collaborations with respect to internships, research, and student projects. A number of undergraduate projects and graduate research theses have been determined with two major companies in Jordan: Nuqul Group and AlSaig brothers.
This, however, will require administration and follow up overhead as more projects and theses are solicited and determined. Moreover, a number of promising student projects with potential market are being developed each year. Students work on projects such as academic portals, software automation, biomechanics, multimedia, database applications and much more. These projects would only require special packaging, documentation, and standardization to become real-life products. The motivation behind creating such a center is to account for Yarmouk-industry interaction overhead and to allow students work in a business environment.
