Dean’s Welcome

Dr. Feda Salah

Welcome to the Faculty of Architecture and Design (FAAD) at the American University of Madaba (AUM).

Our faculty provides a vibrant, holistic, and creative educational environment that focuses on developing the students’ thinking skills to cope with the communal needs of the design practice and the rapid progress in modern digital technology and market demands. 

Our mission is to provide the students with an outstanding interdisciplinary design education to meet those evolving needs and developments through enhancing their critical thinking, creative problem solving, research abilities, effective communication skills and collaboration with distinctive national and international institutions.    

We offer three major programs; Architecture, Design and Visual Communication (DVC), and Design and Applied Arts (DAA).

Throughout the last four years our programs were developed to cope with the new advancement in the local and global markets to offer more specialization in the different offered programs through various tracks in both the DVC and the DAA programs.

We would like to invite all who are looking for a creative and innovative career to further explore our three different offered programs with their different tracks either through our website or campus visit to decide where you can envision yourself in the near future. 

Wishing you all a prosperous, enjoyable and creative future.


Yours Sincerely,
