Scientific research that contributes to the advancement and development of the local society in Al-Mafraq governorate, and generally in Jordan is the core objective of Al al-Bayt University. This appears so evident in the actions taken by the University in this period through the establishment of centres of research excellence in all scientific fields. Water, Environment and Arid Regions Research Centre which was established in 2009 is one of the major research centres in Jordan. This centre has several technical and scientific laboratories equipped with the latest technologies to serve industry, service sector and researchers from Jordan and abroad. These laboratories have precise scientific equipments to conduct laboratory tests on rocks, minerals, liquid substances and organic materials. The Centre collaborates with faculty members and graduate students at the university and researchers from inside and outside the university in conducting scientific research on water, environment and arid regions. The Centre is attracting financial and technical support for scientific researches from institutions that support scientific research from within Jordan and abroad. It is currently conducting scientific studies funded by the Scientific Research Support Fund at the Ministry of Higher Education, SABEQ Program which is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Al al-Bayt University. In addition, the centre is currently seeking other funds from international institutions such as the European Union and NATO to fund research projects in the areas of land resources management, water harvesting, groundwater artificial recharge and other related subjects.
