Signals and Multimedia Processing
The aim of this research
group is to design a system that locates lost objects in both indoor and
outdoor environments. The target audience are average people with smart,
portable and handheld devices such as smartphones. The lost objects are
either people or things. To consider real and practical scenarios of
lost objects, no prior information about the environment shall be known.
Big Data and Cloud Computing
Various applied research, applications and topics to be investigated and
to eventually establish long-term research projects in the following
Smart cities and IoT devices & applications.
Big data and machine learning based automatic speech recognition systems
for mobile applications.
Wireless network performance evaluation and enhancements using big data
and machine learning.
Intelligent Embedded Systems
The aim of this research project is to create a unified intelligent protocol for unmanned aerial vehicle which should be responsible for:
• Maintain collision avoidance functionality
• Optimize the path planning for UAVs
• Allow for priority in UAV maneuvers based on UAV type.
The project aims to design a robust voltage controlled oscillator, VCO, that can automatically compensate for changes in environment and manufacturing corners and provide a stable frequency without the need of Phase Locked Loops.
and Renewable Energy Systems
The research group conducts advanced research in
areas of smart grids with current focus on demand side management and
real time pricing and exploring the use of solar energy to power street
Computer and Network Security
The aim of this group is to conduct research in
the following areas: Botnet Detection and Prevention, Forensic
Investigation of the Internet of Things, Big Data Forensics, Network
Flow Analysis, Intrusion Detection and Prevention, Digital Forensics and
Anti-Forensics, Malware Analysis and Memory Forensics, Cryptography in
Embedded and Reconfigurable Systems.
Natural Language Processing and Text Mining
The aim of this group is to extract knowledge
from natural language texts mainly Arabic texts through the development
of solutions in the following areas: Semantic Processing, Lexical
Semantics and Ontology, Latent Semantic Analysis, Linguistic Resources,
Arabic Text Entailment, Machine Translation, Text Mining, Arabic Natural

The aim of this group is to conduct research in the following areas:
Facebook and Twitter Advertising, Content Marketing, Real-Time
Marketing, B2B in the Context of Social Media, Social Media and Consumer
The aim of this group is to conduct research in the following
areas: Emotional Branding, Emotional Selling, Emotional Advertising and
E-business and ICT adoption
The main aim of this research group is to promote and exchange
ideas on e-business research and applications. It also collaborates in
building and validating e-business theory and practice. The research
group also explores issues related to e-government development and
implementation. Research interests include Information and
Communication Technologies adoption especially in developing countries.
Energy, Environments and Economics
The research group investigates the use of
renewable energy technology and the environment parameters impact on
solar modules including all areas related to performance of these
modules. The group also studies the implementation of solar panels for a
green building in Jordan to generate solar energy and to support the
electricity supplied by the national grid. This is to reduce the annual
electricity bill, in addition to eliminate the CO2 emission. The study
also to find the positive impact of implementation such systems for a
local residential small project in Jordan, taking into consideration the
escalating oil and natural gas prices, and the decrease in photovoltaic
technology cost. These works resulted in one book, five international
conference papers, three international journal published papers, and
three international journals in review process.
