Located in the King Hussein Business Park, Al Hussein Technical University (HTU) was established by the Crown Prince Foundation to bridge the gap between the number of graduates and their rate of employment in technical fields. To address this gap, the Crown Prince Foundation set forth HTU as a model of technical education that features a seamless combination of excellence, rigor, and close alignment to the ever-changing demands and developments of industry.
HTU prepares students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and training. Students earn their degrees through a combination of the finest theoretical instruction and the latest practical applications in new, state-of-the-art laboratories. In addition, HTU has formed close ties with the technical industry in Jordan, regionally, and internationally, resulting in mutually beneficial partnerships.
HTU’s goal is to create a globally competitive institution of higher education, modeled after leading and innovative technical universities around the world. HTU serves as a bridge between higher education and industry, providing opportunities to students to be immersed in the practical pursuit of the technical world. Since its establishment, HTU has been contributing to a skilled workforce with innovative capabilities, in addition to focusing on industry requirements, entrepreneurship, critical thinking, and practical training.
As a premier university integrating the public and private sectors, HTU leads its graduates to meaningful employment opportunities and contributes to the development of innovation in Jordan and regionally. HTU focuses on STEM education at the vocational and undergraduate levels, filling a niche that has long been neglected by the Jordanian higher education sector.

The technical industry is integral to every component of HTU, which cultivates strong relationships with partners locally, regionally, and internationally. Industry leaders are invited to contribute in the development of HTU’s educational programs to ensure that students remain current with rapidly changing technical and scientific innovations. Such relationships permit HTU to continually contribute to the needs of the industry in the fields of engineering and information technology. This symbiotic relationship offers HTU students unmatched opportunities in both their current educational endeavors and future employment pursuits.
In addition to its degree programs, HTU offers skill development courses for members of the community who have completed their education but remain unemployed. These courses vary in length and focus, but are typically between three to six months and offer participants a chance to refine their skills to increase employability in the technical fields.
Courses include English for special purposes, leadership development, and technical upskilling.
Another important initiative at HTU is the Labs at Schools program. Through Labs at Schools, HTU faculty, staff, and students are able to bring lab-based curriculum to schools in remote areas of Jordan. This program allows HTU to demonstrate its commitment to its mission of advocating for STEM education by giving school children the opportunity to access its labs and learn from its faculty.
