The Department of Water and Environment Management was established at the beginning of the academic year (1999) with the aim of building an academic program at the bachelor’s level aimed at graduating scientific cadres who would participate in studying environmental problems locally and providing solutions to them.

It also aims to supply the local and Arab market with specialized competencies in the fields of planning, management and development of water resources and preserving the environment in its various elements.

The department is distinguished by its isolation at the local and regional levels by being the only department that offers various and unique courses concerned with studying environmental problems and providing appropriate solutions to them.

The department is also closely linked with the local community through the completion of scientific research that helps solve many problems related to water, environment and pollution, especially in Zarqa Governorate, which suffers from problems of air, soil, surface and groundwater pollution.
