His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II inaugurated the engineering workshop at Maan University College, affiliated with Balqa Applied University, on Wednesday. Royal Hashemite Court Chief Yousef Issawi and Balqa Applied University President Ahmad Ajlouni attended the inauguration.
As the Crown Prince Al Hussein toured the building, which was established upon Royal directives to train students and hone their skills, he stressed the importance of striking a balance between the theoretical and practical application of knowledge, as well as creating an educational environment that replicates that of professional firms and institutions to ensure graduates’ readiness for the labour market.
Royal Highness listened to a briefing on the facility, which consists of three fully equipped engineering workshops extending over 700 square meters of space to serve technical majors. Maan University College Dean Sattam Khatib reported that the college’s enrolled students have grown from 347 to over 1,200 in 13 majors since the college introduced a group of new technical majors recently.
