UJ was established in 1962, since then it has applied itself to research and community research knowledge. UJ offers 63 international programs at the undergraduate level, and 130 international program at the graduate level in all field of specialization. Also It offers 30 doctoral program and 81 master program. The essential components of most of the programs offered are based on dialogue, applied research, creative thinking, field work, practical training, combined with modern teaching techniques. Since its establishment in 1974, the Faculty of Engineering and Technology has always strived for keeping up with the latest developments in energy applications. Recently, the UJ established the Water Energy and Environment Center. It meant to be the source of knowledge and advanced technology in all forms and areas of energy water and environment at all levels of national, regional and global.
