PhysicsPhysics2
We welcome you to one of the oldest departments at the University of Jordan. Since its establishment in 1965, the Physics department has developed positive educational and research environments. It offers courses leading to BSc, MSc and PhD degrees. Currently, it has 35 faculty members teaching about 350 undergraduate Physics major students in addition to 100 post graduates. The supporting staff consists of 24 members working as laboratory instructors and technicians, engineers and technicians at the electronic and mechanical workshops. The undergraduate program is designed for students interested in either teaching physics at schools or pursuing their graduate studies in physics. The undergraduate students have access to two main computing facilities in addition to seven experimental laboratories that offer experiments at the introductory, intermediate and advanced undergraduate teaching levels. The department also offers service courses to more than two thousands of undergraduate students from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Agriculture, Medicine, Dentistry, and Re-Habilitation Sciences.  Moreover, the department is actively engaged in several areas of research which include:
·         Theoretical and experimental solid state physics
·         Materials and nanoscience physics
·         Theoretical condensed matter physics
·         Theoretical nuclear physics
·         Mathematical and computational physics
·         Experimental nuclear physics
·         Atomic and molecular physics
·         Medical physics
·         Environmental physics
·         Some faculty members perform research at international synchrotron facilities.
 In support to the above theoretical and experimental research areas, the department has established a High Performance Computing facilities (HPC) in addition to several experimental laboratories that are equipped with state of the art facilities such as:
·         X-ray Diffractometer (XRD)
·         Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)
·         Physical Vapor Depositor (PVD)
·         Photoluminescence (PL) Spectrofluorometer
·         Polarized Optical Microscope

GeologyGeology5
Geology is the study of the processes, products and history of the Earth. There is a continuous demand for energy and mineral resources globally, so is the demand for geologists. The Department of Geology at the University of Jordan has been a home for pioneering research and excellent teaching for well over forty years, with our graduates becoming leaders in both academia and industry. We have strong research programs in earth materials, mineralogy, sedimentary and earth surface processes, hydrogeology, remote sensing, geophysics, geochemistry/petrology, and structural geology with the emphasis on the geology of Jordan and its mineral and water resources. The Department of Geology strives to not only conduct advanced research but to also provide high-quality education in the geosciences at the undergraduate and graduate level. We offer undergraduate programs leading to Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degrees in Geology as well as Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in Earth Sciences. The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Laboratory in the Department of Geology hosts the most modern computers and software. Our labs house a series of modern instruments as high resolution tools for studying the crystal-chemistry of fine-grained material. Our techniques involve combining X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy for characterizing and monitoring fine particle mineral reactions in various geological and geotechnical settings. We are very privileged to enjoy a close collaboration with scientists in industry and government research institutions.

ChemistryChemistry3
The Department of Chemistry was established in 1965 and it was the first chemistry department founded in Jordan. The department started master's program in 1972 and a doctoral program in 1995. The number of students at the early years of the department did not exceed one hundred students. Now it stands at about 516 B.Sc., 49 Master and 19 PhD students. The department of chemistry has grown to have thirty five faculty members graduated from the best universities in the world, supported by more than 20 staff members. Several teaching laboratories are available in the department. These laboratories cover the different fields of chemistry providing an excellent training, in the field of chemistry, to the students of the department and many students from other scientific colleges. There are several laboratories that provide a specialized analysis equipped with modern spectral,thermal and chromatographic instruments such as: - Mass spectrometer (7 tesla) - NMR 300 & NMR 500 MHz - High resolution - FT.IR - Single crystal x-Ray diffractometer - Elemental analysis (C, H, N) - U.V-Vis - HPLC & GC & GC-Mass - Atomic absorption - DSC & TGA - Liquid Nitrogen facility The faculty members are dedicated to provide all aspects of chemical knowledge and to make meaningful contributions in the field of chemistry. This is achieved by qualifying the chemistry graduates for work as well as to pursue their graduate studies, and in the long term to make significant influence in research and community service. The Department of Chemistry is characterized by its activity in the scientific research, which started since the beginning of the department. Thirty five faculty members in the department are involved in research that includes: applied chemistry, environmental chemistry, natural products, organic synthesis directed to biologically active compounds and solid state chemistry. The faculty members publish their work in prestigious peer-reviewed chemistry journals; they have published thirty two scientific articles in ISI Web of Knowledge journals in the year 2013.
